Preparing for the GMAT with the same test-like conditions is crucial if you want to maximize your score. This is why I purchased this product and most likely the reason that you're considering purchasing this product through reading reviews. I'm sure this pad is perfectly fine, however if you go through all of the other review pictures, you'll see that Manhattan provided the purchasers with the correct permanent marker, which is a Staedtler Lumocolor Wet Erase (fine tip). However, I was supplied with a much cheaper option: an Expo Vis-a-Vis (thicker, sloppier, etc.).
Some may say that I'm being petty with a 1 star rating, and I may very well be, but I am also being diligent in how I prepare for the test and so should you. Buying Staedtler markers (which are the same ones that are used on the test is not something that will break my bank, it is however something extra for me to do and requires extra time to wait. I can also argue however that providing users with the correct markers which were advertised will not break Manhattan's bank either. It would just be nice for there to be consistency on the materials that are sent out. Before you order, hope that you get the correct materials, and good luck on your prep!
