We hope you all have the opportunity to visit our new GMAT Resource. Some of our information is copied below:

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer-adaptive standardized test in mathematics and English that is used by graduate business school admissions committees. The test is taken on a computer at various locations around the world. The fee to take the test is \$250.

The exam is intended to measure verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that the candidate has developed over a long period of time in his or her education and work. Test takers answer questions in each of these three areas. The test takes about four hours to complete.

Scores are valid for five years from the date the test taker sits the exam until the date of matriculation. The maximum score that can be achieved on the exam is 800. Over the three years ending in March 2011, the average score was 540.4.

IMPORTANT DATES

The GMAT exam is administered year-round and on demand at test centers around the world. If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment to take the exam, the first step is to register for the test at MBA.com.
