I have taken the GMAT seven times, and my verbal score is always between 48 and 51, but I could never score more than 33 in the Bellcurves simulations! I have, however, a better opinion of their quant questions.

Special Characters in Names

How should candidates type their names when registering if these names have accents?
For example, Begoña, Movenpick (with two dots over the o)

Thanks in advance!

He took each simulation once, and was disappointed to see several questions repeated in the verbal section. I will try each simulation to see whether questions in the two exams overlap and get back to you with the results. Thanks for your reply!

GMATPrep Exam Pack

A student of mine noticed that there was a lot of overlap between the questions in the two exams of the GMATPrep Exam Pack, 9 in the verbal section alone! Is this is to be expected, or could there be a defect?
