    Hi- just based on what I have been reading, it sounds like the online version may be worse. I took it in person and the computer crashed and needed restarts 8 times. The proctors were very quick to run in and restart the computer or move me to another location, it "only" took about 5-10 minutes. From what I've read in the forum, the online test takers are waiting for their remote proctors for upwards of 20-30 minutes sometimes. Either way, sounds like NCARB has a lot of these technical glitches to work out. I've completed 4 of 6 exams, and only the very last one (after the new format rollout in October) did I have any technical issues. I'd like to know when it will be resolved though, because I cannot deal with the stress of another exam/fail/technical issue debacle again.

    Thank you for your response. That is exactly what I have been reading as well. Seems like there are still some kinks to be worked out online.
