Silly Question? What day of the week is best for the gmat?

Post Tue Aug 29, 2006 5:27 am
I know that there is a personal preference element involved, but what day would you recommend? Maybe you guys/girls have some insight that I am unaware of.

Personally, my body is usually tired from a week's worth of work to effectively function early on Saturday. Conversely, I can't imagine taking the exam on a Monday after the lull of the weekend. Maybe a midweek exam?

What do you think? What day did you take it and how did that work out for you?

I'm in America, and as far as I can conclude, every day seems to be open (not sure of Sundays) and times range from 9am to 5pm.

I'm fairly certain that I do not want to take the gmat on Monday nor Saturday. I'm thinking of taking off from work Thursday and Friday and taking the test on Friday. Or I might take Monday and Tuesday off and take it Tuesday. Not sure. Am I just micromanaging and succumbing to my own neurosis? That might be it.

I checked here in Seoul, we could take test on any available days. (Mon to Sun). And there are TWO timings on any day. You can take test either in the morning at 9.00 AM or in the afternoon at 1.00 PM.

I guess a MONDAY,at 9.00 is an ideal timing for taking the test.

Anybody else to vote for this?????
