    I just tested at the Woodlawn, MD location and it was horrible. I arrived about 40 minutes early the place smelled like microwaved cooked bacon. Which has to be the worse food smell ever. There was one lady there and everyone had to wait for her to get the computes online which was frustrating because I was told to come early. She said I had to put my sweater in the car as well. I had on a no sleeve top under it. The computers weren’t set up so I had the same problem when I finally arrived at my station. Instead of coming to fix it I was given directions that made no sense. The proctor had to come in and fix it. Once I got started I was very distracted because I couldn’t get over the entire situation. The distraction continued because everyone who came in had to get the proctor to set their station up individually, so there was a lot of movement. I was on question 3 and 15 - 20 minutes had passed. So I knew I had to make up time. I tried to quickly move through the questions but I was freezing. Similar to Leah I wanted to work through but of course had to use the restroom. I probably shouldn’t have given the time I lost but I quickly looked at my tagged questions. Once I got to the Case Studies I realized I was running very short on time. I almost started crying because I started thinking the worse. I had to guess I few questions at the end and I could’ve review my checked questions but fortunately, the computer said I passed. I left still feeling extremely disappointed with the exam site. I’ve tested at Prometric. There were a lot of sites to choose between. I’ve tested at four different Prometric sites in the Baltimore area, they were all clean and professional. This testing site was gross. It’s sad that this switch to PSI is a massive downgrade.

    I pretty sure you cannot leave the room without taking a break. They have to lock the questions now so it is the same as at home test takers.  She did the right thing. The log in with the sticky note I believe is for all testing centers. It is your NCARB record number. I had to input that into the computer as well.

    Margaret- I can confirm that is incorrect. I did not receive a sticky note or need to log- in any numbers.
