    As of the 14th of December, everyone will take the new version of the test whether in person or at home. So I would take a look at it if you are testing after that date.

    thanks for your input michael.
    but not before? i started to wonder if it might have some “cognitive” or “testing value” somehow. i can’t quite figure it.
    or if it would just make things too confusing given the various states of the UI (or however you want to phrase that).
    i just wondering if it is worth three hours going though 100 questions or whatever? or maybe even a bad idea...?

    The two UI's are similar in many ways and different including the number of questions and the way the screen sequencing happens. I would say if you are taking the Exam after the 14th I would just get into the new practice exam, the questions are the same with some additional ones. The interface and how the test works is different. For example, you are shown all the questions before you start. Once you begin the exam it will go in order from where you started. If you have marked questions to review or passed over them. Once you begin your break those questions become locked out and you can no longer access them. Check out the video on NCARBS Youtube Channel and I would jump into the new practice exam if you are taking it after the 14th. If not I wouldn't get hung up on it. because the practice exam is not for content it's for understanding the platform.
