- Have you downloaded the programs required for your exam? Links to the programs needed are listed below.
- Have you checked the installations of the programs work?

This should be a place free of paper, pens, pencils, noise, electronics, etc. You will be required to show your work environment and ID to the proctor. Erasable white boards are allowed during this exam.
- Programs on computers. You will initially use your internet browser, but no other programs (i.e. Outlook, Excel, etc.) should be running. Before taking your exam, please make sure to quit the other programs running on your computer.
