              	 					**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."
