In-Person and Online Essential Skills Assessment Tutoring
While the Essential Skills Assessment is an exam created by GMAC to assess preparedness for a graduate management education program, it is not a GMAT or Executive Assessment Exam replacement and our instructors always teach this exam using specific content separate from those more prominent exams. Before taking this assessment, applicants should confirm that target schools will accept it.

About the Essential Skills Assessment
The exam is made up of two sections: Verbal Reasoning (i.e., reading comprehension and critical reasoning) and Quantitative Reasoning (i.e., basic computation, ratios & proportions, basic algebra, and applied problem solving). Each part is timed, with the quantitative portion being slightly longer (VR is 20 minutes for 10 questions, QR is 30 minutes for 20 questions), adding up to a 50 minute exam. The total score is the sum of the two sections, and ranges from 0 to 15.
The assessment is delivered through Proctor U in a secure, online environment. This test cannot be taken in a public space and you will need to follow strict guidelines laid out in advance by GMAC and Proctor U to maintain the test's integrity.
