IR, can I use the numpad on the keyboard for calculator?

Post Sun Jul 29, 2012 5:39 pm
hi,

I was wondering whether the on-screen calculator on the ACTUAL GMAT allows you to use the number pad on the keyboard?

-It doesn't work for the MGMAT IR sections
-it DOES work for the GMATprep software.

Thanks

And I can attest that the calculator not only works, it's much better than the one in MGMAT and better than the one in GMATPrep. Picture the Windows built-in calculator because that's basically what I got (and assume what everyone gets). One of the greatest things I noticed compared MGMAT (and possibly GMATPrep) was that you are able to select answers while the calculator is still open. I think earlier draft versions you weren't able to. And yes, you can use the number pad which cut my time down by at least a minute.

It works with MGMAT as well. You can try to contact MGMAT if there are any browser related issues,
