I just wonder if we should start a discussion on the test centers. It is
because some test centers may have outdated equipment and a nasty test
For example, I took my first test at the San Jose, CA center this week. The
monitors were more than 10 years old (CRT, not LCD). So were the mouse
(track-point mouse, not optical one, with the track-point malfunctioning
at times) and the keyboard. The monitor was placed very close to my eyes
and I could not push it back further. The screen kept flashing/refreshing
once in a while and this just killed my eyes. The keyboard was slightly
smaller than the normal size.
Also, upon returning from my break, I had to stand in line to wait for the
staff to finish registering with one person before I could sign back into
the testing room. This counted against my time, of course.
On the other hand, the temperature was ok--not too hot or too cold. The
restroom was not too far away. Parking was sufficient.
Forum Host: can we start such a discussion and have it placed on the top?
I believe this thread would benefit candidates greatly if they could avoid
test centers that suck.
