    I looked up the following location listed on NCARBs website:

    “BRONX” at 34 Marconi Street, Suite 210, Bronx, NY 10461

    It is a train yard.

    Is this a mistake or a scam by the company offering the service? Why is this location shown as a testing location for NCARB?

    Samantha,

    Please contact NCARB's customer service if you are having difficulty locating a testing center. With an accommodation in place, this would be the best option. 202-879-0520.

    As always, if you have a poor experience at a test center, notifying NCARB is the first step. We follow up with PSI as necessary.

    Thank you. I intend to call this number, which is also provided on the exam appointment page on NCARBs website.

    I would still like to know of any recent experiences at NYC testing locations from the community. Customer Service can only tell me one side of the story.

    Samantha, I go to the AVNA center downtown (139 Fulton Street) and my experience so far has been pretty good, I've taken all 6 divisions (5/6 passed) and waiting to do my 2nd attempt on PA. I live in Brooklyn so its convenient for me as it's right off the AC line (and many more) at Fulton Center. The test center is small (if you live in NYC you are probably used to small spaces) and the room where you take the NCARB exams is about 200 sqft (like 10x20' or 12x20') and has 9 stations. The bathroom is clean and the people who work there are pretty nice, they are also usually fairly flexible about your arrival time, if the subway broke down and you showed up like half an hour late, usually its not a big deal in my experience. It's by no means a fancy testing center but it's a place to get stuff done...

    Thank you so much for your input, Jianan. I will schedule my tests there. It really helps to just have a general expectation of the place I’m going to test in. Good luck with PA!
