Screen size, full screen viewing capability at test center

Post Sun Oct 17, 2010 7:47 am
guys, please let me know from your experience:

Does the Gmat Test software run on FullScreen mode?
- I'm not using monitor scaling and using native resolution, so I'm using the test prep software on a much smaller sized window compared to the whole screen. I want to start practicing in fullscreen (bigger fonts are better) if thats how test conditions are in gmat! the small fonts are killing me.

also, im told the screen is 17" sized, is it true?

The GMATPrep Practice Test has a resolution of about 640 x 480! It takes over your computer and fills the entire screen. That is also the case on test day -- the entire screen is filled with GMAT goodness.

Here in the Boston area all of the test centers have at least 17" monitors. The text is very easy to see, rest assured. Outside of the United States things can be different. I had a tutoring student in Dubai who said that the monitors he took his test on where about 13 inches. Not sure if that is still true. If you have a doubt visit the test center you are thinking of using - this is a good idea anyway!

Thanks a lot David. a 640x480 would really help. Any resolution over 800x600 would make it harder. Since I'm outsdie US, definitely be checking it out then.
BTW: A 13" monitor? Think that'll kill me right there!

Pearson must have it standardized though. Sad
