GMAT – Graduate Management Admission Test

What is GMAT? ?

The GMAT exam is the best way to get the world’s top graduate management business programs to notice you. The exam measures your verbal, quantitative, integrated reasoning, and analytical writing skills.

The GMAT is a three-and-a-half-hour long exam, broken into four different sections which measures higher-order reasoning rather than facts or subject areas. While you will use skills you learned in geometry, algebra and English classes to answer the test questions, the exam is not a test of these skills. It is designed to assess your ability to analyze data and use reasoning to solve problems.
