Full-time MBA Fair To Be Held On November 9th and 10th And Executive MBA Fair To Be Held On November 11th
November 2, 2011

New York, NY—The Economist’s Online Fairs business will hold three days
of graduate education fairs in early November. The first fair, which
focuses on full-time MBA programs, will be held on November 9th and
10th. The second fair, which is devoted to executive MBAs, will take
place on November 11th. Interested participants can log on from
anywhere and can register for free on the Full-time MBA website (
http://registermbafair.whichmba.com/?source=catprep ) and on the
Executive MBA ( http://registerembafair.whichmba.com/?source=catprep )
website.
Both fairs provide a unique opportunity for prospective students to
interact with admissions officers from schools around the world. Fair
attendees will also be able to speak with alumni from those schools to
better understand daily life as a student. Visitors can watch Bill
Ridgers, The Economist’s Business Education Editor, interview full-time
and executive MBA alumni in a taped panel discussion.
“Choosing the right school is an important part of the business school
decision process,” said Isaac Showman, Vice-President and Head of Online
Fairs. “The fairs we’ve created allow prospective students to interact
with and learn as much as possible about the exhibiting schools,
enabling students to make more informed decisions about what’s right for
them.”

A variety of well-known universities will take part in each fair.
TiasNimbas, University of Bath, University of New South Wales
(Australia), University of California- Riverside, and the University of
Hong Kong are among those participating in the MBA Fair. Darden School

Student query regarding GRE scores

October 23rd, 2011

Recently a student wrote to ask us a question regarding the scoring of our GRE practice tests.

Ben asked: “What kind of scoring do you give for GRE practice tests? An old score range like Kaplan i.e. 650-750 or the new score “151″?”

We were pleased to inform Ben that currently our GRE practice tests deliver scores using both ranges so that our students can compare.

Best of luck to all of you preparing for the GRE!

Customer query regarding the new GRE format

September 19th, 2011

Jacob wrote us today with the following queries and we wanted to share our response:

Do your products reflect the change in the exam? If so, how were you able to anticipate those changes and adapt your products accordingly in such a short amount of time? Does your product or website explain the changes in the exam?

Thanks for your query Jacob. Yes we have updated all our GRE practice tests to reflect the new GRE format which began August 1st, 2011.

As a recognized leader in GRE Test preparation materials, we were given access to ETS’s proposed revisions well in advance. Thus we were able to release our updates for the new format by July 2011 so that our students could get a jump on preparing for the changes.

We published a short primer of the new GRE format changes on our website but generally do not recommend that students waste any time reviewing any comparisons of the old and new format. The new format is here to stay and it’s best to simply focus on the current format of the GRE and make certain that you prepare with updated materials such as our GRE Practice Tests.

MBA Applications Are Down, What’s Up?

Our GMAT Practice Tests now include AWA scoring!

August 11th, 2011

Just a day after releasing the same feature for our GRE Practice Tests – we are pleased to announce that we’ve added AWA scoring to our GMAT Practice Tests as well!

Our latest update to our GMAT Practice Test Simulator includes a new AWA scoring feature that provides real-time rating of your analytical writing assessment responses.

Students currently using our practice tests for study will automatically receive AWA ratings for any newly completed test sessions and previously saved test sessions will also receive AWA ratings when they are next loaded for review.

We are excited about this new offering and are certain that you’ll benefit from the AWA feedback provided by our GMAT practice tests. Best of luck in your preparations!
