Press Release: GMAT Simulator Software Upgrade

Upstart Raising’s new GMAT practice simulator provides a pool of over 300 questions, from the quantitative, verbal, and AWA sections of the GMAT exam. The simulator features performance-based question selection algorithms, an accurate scoring engine, and runs in any Java-capable internet browser.

May 14, 2004 – Upstart Raising, an online educational software and services provider, today announced the immediate availability of its new GMAT Simulator. Upstart’s simulator raises the bar for realistic reproductions of the computer adaptive Graduate Management Admission Test by featuring exclusive performance-based question selection algorithms that accurately simulate the real computer-based GMAT exam by selecting each subsequent question from a pool of questions of varying difficulty based on the current performance of the test-taker.

The new simulator distinguishes itself further by including over 300 questions encompassing the quantitative, verbal, and Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) sections of the GMAT exam. The simulator’s user-interface was designed to closely resemble the true GMAT “look and feel” by replicating the controls and interface of the real exam using platform independent Java technology which enables the Simulator to run on any computer platform that supports Java-based browsers.

“Our simulator targets prospective business school candidates who have already completed their individual review regimens,” said Cindy Anderson, project manager, and project lead for the Upstart Raising GMAT Simulator. “Most of our customers are seeking a comprehensive simulation of the GMAT that enables them to practice their test-taking strategies and techniques in an realistic environment. By providing feedback for various strategies and time-management techniques, our Simulator helps our customers achieve their maximum possible score when it matters most…the day they sit for the real exam.”
