Using a digital whiteboard is not a fair assessment of GMAT test takers. Very disappointing:/

Not having scratch paper is ridiculous. It is not a test of knowledge, logic or analytics, it's a test of how well you can use the whiteboard.

I am sure you can come up with something better... something less ruthless. At least allow the use of stylus.... Or maybe try what GRE is doing.

This online whiteboard was inadequate.

No one types out their calculations in real life.

This is unfair and severely adversely affected my score.

It's impossible to do math on the whiteboard with a mouse

I have practiced for the GMAT for months using pen-and-paper. I can only write at 25% the speed using an online whiteboard. This "online whiteboard," is NOT a passable replacement. Let us use pen and paper!!

Please reconsider, if you don't fix this it won't be worth it to take the exam online and a lot of us will have to wait who knoes how long to go to an assesment center

I wish to write the exam in May but I am not at all comfortable with on screen white board to do rough work.

I'm signing in the petition, because it is easier to use pen-paper during the exam and is fast. I prefer pen-paper especially on analyticals
