 Does anyone have any knowledge or input as to how the newtest will affect the test takers?

 In what way?The new test will drop one essay and replace it with a new section called Integrated Reasoning. So you will have to study for this new section.The Quant and Verbal sections are not changing at all. If you are not well-prepared for Integrated Reasoning, or if you find essay-writing easier than answering test questions, though, then you might find yourself more tired on the Q and V sections, since Integrated Reasoning comes first.In terms of scores, IR is scored on a completely separate scale; the Q and V scores (and the overall 3-digit score) as you know them will not change. Nobody knows yet how the business schools will use the IR scores, but the general consensus is that it won't play a very important role in admissions for the first year. After that... well, ask me again in a year. _________________Stacey KoprinceInstructorDirector of Online CommunityManhattanGMAT
