GMAT is typically pronounced "Gee-Mat." Most MBA schools use the GMAT score as a criterion for admission. Its a computerized examination created and administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) on behalf of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). Virtually all good-quality business schools in the world require it for their full-time MBA programs; many require it for other business programs as well.

ost of the big MBA programs, and a lot of the lower ranking ones too, require applicants to take the GMAT test. The score they expect varies immensely from program to program. A good national school might expect 500 or 550 plus, while the top MBA programs expect you to get 600+. Similarly the GMAT averages at schools vary a lot with some MBA programs averaging 700 or more.

Currently around 220,000 people take the four hour GMAT every year. You can now get a free copy of the GMAT test from the GMAC site (link below), or if you're registered for the GMAT you can get a free CD rom.

The GMAC have offered a software package POWERPREP for the last few years. The practice exams use the same software engine that's employed by the GMAT to present test-takers quantitative or verbal questions based upon how well and how quickly a student answers the questions that have come before. However, the two mini-GMATs retrieve questions from a smaller database than the real exam does, so after three to five run-throughs, the test-taker will be asked the same questions.
