Manhattan GMAT CATs

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I decided to try these tests and the best way was not to buy the tests directly but to buy one of the Manhatten GMAT book, which gives the test for free.

Well I can definitely say that the quant section of the Tests was difficult and once you take the test and the analyze the answers you will definitely learn a lot of new funda that might come useful in real test, but the difficulty level and the test algorithm is way above the real GMAT exam's standard.

Coming to the Verbal section, the question and logic of the CR section was not good enough, the SC section was kind of OK to learn some concepts. The most positive section of the test in Verbal was the RC section, this is what was really eye opening experience for me. The RC passages and questions especially the inference ones were very very good and pulls your attention to the critical mindset that is needed to take GMAT.

Overall I would say , if someone wants to just feel the heat of the GMAT exam experience and then later wants to analyse each test and its answers then Manhattan GMAT CATs are helpful. But if you judge your real GMAT capabilities with the results of these tests it will be little off target on your part.

GMAT Test Center at Begumpet, Hyderabad.

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I appeared for the GMAT exam in the Pearson VUE test center in Begumpet area, Hyderabad. I was worried before entering the test center that some or other unforeseen incident might ruin my 3 months preparation and interrupt the exam, and this fear had arisen because of the several reviews that I had read regarding the problems people face in test centers. But to my luck, this center was very very professional, organized and clean. Even when I asked for 2 extra pen to carry inside the exam room , which was obliged by the test center. During the break the instructor clearly told me your break has started at this time and you need to come back by this time showing at the big clock in the center. There was a lock facility. the instructors were good listeners.
Just one small drawback of this center is its just beside the main road. The honking sound of vehicles can some time enter through the glass window but the ceter provides noise cancellation head phones. So not to worry.

Overall my experience was good. The Test center proved to be as expected from a GMAT test taker.

Just use the noise cancelling earphones, rest are as normal as it can be.
