software can prevent this new window from opening. If you do not see a new

How do I
save and review my GMAT session results?
Don't worry, your results are automatically saved when you completed
your exam and just before the scoring and explanation page.
To review your results:
Simply enter your previously used access code in the 'Access Code' field and click the 'Login' button to load your
How can I simulate a GMAT exam that accounts for my approved disability?
The Graduate Management Admission Council makes several accommodations available
to test takers with documented disabilities. Our software simulates the actual
nonstandard options available to these candidates and allows them to practice
under the true conditions they will experience on test day.
In order to initiate an exam session using an approved disability configuration,
simply select the 'Disability Configuration' choice on the Options menu before
clicking the 'Login' button on the first screen (Login Screen) of the Simulator.
After setting the desired options, click the 'OK' button in the bottom
right-hand corner to return to the 'Login Screen'. Note that disability
configuration options can not be set or modified after logging into a new exam
happens if I lose my network connection?
Our software is not affected by the loss of a network connection during
an active session. The entire question pool is downloaded by the
simulator software before your exam session begins.
Do I need to remain online while taking my GMAT
exam in the simulator?
No, the entire question pool is
downloaded by the simulator software before your exam session begins. After you
successfully log in to the exam using your access code, you may disconnect your
network connection if you desire. At the conclusion of the exam session, you
will be prompted to reconnect in order to save your session results.
Still having problems?
Please feel free to contact us for assistance.
We haven't had any issues reported with the current release of the Simulator. If
you experience any difficulty, please let us know. We'll be happy to help!
What is an access code and how do I use it?
Before our software will generate your unique exam
session, you must enter a valid and unused access code on the session "Login"
screen. Once the software validates this access code, it will be used to
generate your simulated session from the current question pool and can not be
used again. After you complete the simulated GMAT exam session, your used access
code will be associated with your saved session data. You will need to enter
this access code anytime you wish to load your saved session in order to
score, the questions you received, the answer explanations, etc..
Our GMAT simulator software works in the same way as the
actual GMAT exam by generating a custom exam session for each user by selecting
questions from a large question pool according to the performance of the
test taker. We have divided our question pool into five parts to insure five
completely independent testing sessions. We recommend that users only complete
one simulated exam session per question pool, because you are likely to encounter
duplicate questions if you sit for a simulated exam session from the same
question pool twice and perform similarly.
However, any valid unused access code can be used to login
to the GMAT simulator software while using any of the five question pools. So,
if you buy a pack of three access codes, they can be used to generate three
unique simulated sessions, one from each question pool, or they can be used to
generate three sessions from the same question pool. Nothing prevents you from
sitting for multiple simulated sessions from the same question pool.
Access codes are not tied to a particular question pool
and remain valid indefinitely. Your saved simulated exam session will also
remain available indefinitely. To review a previously completed exam session,
What type of computer is required to use your software?
Our software runs on all modern computer systems and all major operating systems
and web browsers. We support Macintosh OS/X, all Microsoft Windows platforms,
Linux, Unix, and OS/2. If you are unsure of our support for your computer platform,
please email us using the 'GMAT Support' link on the menu to the left.
While our software is compatible with all major webbrowsers including
Microsoft's Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, AOL, and others, we recommend the
freely available Firefox browser. Click the button below to install Firefox now:
Will someone grade my analyical writing section essays?
In order to fully simulate your actual test experience, our software does include the Analytical Writing section of the GMAT.
However, this section has no bearing on the comprehensive score of your real exam or our simulated exam.
Thus, in order to keep your costs as low as possible we do not grade these sections by default.
If you wish, we can arrange for a private tutor to grade your completed
essays, but this service requires an additional payment to cover the
individual tutor's fees.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate
to contact us.
Will I encounter identical questions within your exams?
No, never. Each of our question pools contains completely independent sets of
questions and you will never encounter identical questions amongst our exam
offerings. Even our free demo exam contains a completely independent set of
original questions and answers.
