    Hey Michael,

    Think of the clean desk as having nothing on it except the equipment needed for testing (keyboard, mouse, monitor, CPU, ID). Any other items on your desk should be removed from the testing space. The clean desk policy doesn't mean you need to remove all the furniture from a space. Bookshelves, chairs, side tables, and other furniture items can all remain in the space but will be subject to a search at check-in. We do recommend removing any clutter from furniture items.

    Shelves can remain in place, but do we have to cover them. I am really having a hard time finding something to cover all of them.  Also, is the heater allowed? I really need it.

    Hi Kawai,

    Space heaters are acceptable but may be subject to inspection by the Prometric readiness agent.

    Is it ok with the "bed sheet" cover 1/3 of the opening? and Do we have to cover every storage space in the room?

    Hi Kawai,

    It really depends on the type of opening you are trying to cover. If it is an opening to a storage space that contains a bunch of stuff (books, electronic storage, etc.) that could create an exam security issue, you would need to cover the opening. However, if the storage space is relatively empty, uncluttered, and contains no objects that could create an exam security issue, it would be ok to not cover the opening. If you're not sure, we recommend fully covering the opening.
