GMAT Information
Test Preparation

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer adaptive examination administered year-round at test centers throughout the world. The GMAT exam measures verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills developed over a long period of time. It is specifically designed to help graduate management programs assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study in business and management. GMAT scores are used by more than 5,000 graduate management programs at approximately 1,900 schools.

The GMAT exam includes Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, and Verbal sections, administered in that order. For the Analytical Writing Assessment, you will be presented with one essay topic requiring analysis of an argument. You will type your essays using the computer keyboard. The Integrated Reasoning section consists of twelve questions covering Multi-Source Reasoning, Graphics Interpretation, Two-Part Analysis, and Table Analysis. The Quantitative section consists of Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving questions that are intermingled throughout the section. The Verbal section consists of Sentence Correction, Reading Comprehension, and Critical Reasoning questions that are also intermingled throughout the section. The Verbal and Quantitative sections contain computer adaptive multiple-choice questions.

Total GMAT scores range from 200 to 800. Two-thirds of test takers score between 400 and 600. Each score is reported on a fixed scale and will appear on the official GMAT score reports that you and your designated score recipients receive. Your score report includes all GMAT scores from tests taken in the last five years.
