Tip #2 - Arrive no later than 15 min before your start time


Call if you are running late. It helps hold your seat on a fully booked day and saves you unnecessary fees.

Tip #3 - Bring a snack for long exams

Unfortunately, you can't have drinks or food in the testing room itself, but you can have a quick snack outside the testing room. If you are taking a 4-7-hour test you are going to get hungry. Bring something small like a banana or a granola bar.


Tip #4 - Try to dress as comfortably and... quietly!?


There will be a pocket check and you will be sitting for hours! Things to think about:

  • Try not to wear clothing with a lot of pockets like cargo shorts.

  • Hats and sunglasses are not permitted in the testing rooms.

  • High heels could be loud on tile and wooden floors.

  • Charm bracelets are a BIG NO-NO!

  • You forgot to take off your electronic
