    Yep, definitely can attest to the 'missing information' part of your review. I've taken this one 3 times already and at my wits end with this! All I can hope for is that I get a different case study next time around- but they all seem to use the same case study 'scenario' with different questions. Very frustrating!

    I also felt like a few sections of the building code I would expect to have were missing/ one question in particular was very unclear and possibly missing information regarding egress.

    I posted about this in the General section because I was curious about what happens when questions are determined to be unanswerable.... I encountered two similar issues with a PPD questions this morning , so maybe we're all taking about the same or similar questions. Did any of you report those question numbers/issues to Prometric?

    All - somehow we missed these earlier posts.  I just responded to NK's post here with info about what to do if you have questions about a specific exam item.

    i had big black boxes on some of my case study drawings mostly obscuring the drawing.

    i had one multiple choice question with four possible images as answers and the first had a black bar and a multi-hued green line at the top of it (rasterized). i was so used to staring at drawings trying to figure out what was being presented i stared at this for like a minute and a half before i realized it was a graphic artifact obscuring the first answer.

    in some cases the drawings took so long to load in case studies i started to treat it as a "mental break" and sat back in my chair.

    the problem with that is that i sometimes forgot what i was supposed to be looking for and would have to go back to the question and do it all again.

    i could go on but why bother.

    also, for the record the "we built in extra time on the exam in order to accommodate drawing load lags" just doesn't pass the smell test.
