Please describe your test center

I am about to take the exam and am wondering what your testing center was like. For instance, are you in personal cubicles or do you sit in a row of computers? How large were the computer monitors? Was there silence or do the proctors talk to each other?
Anyone have experience with centers in the Phoenix, AZ area?

Hello Matt,
I took the exam in the Netherlands. The computers were all in one room, with small "walls" between the monitors so you can't see your neighbour. People come in to do all kinds of different exams. The room was mostly silent, except for the fact that everyone was escorted in at a different time! There were cameras in the room. I'm afraid I don't know how big the screens were.
I did NOT see my score on the screen at the end of the exam. I had to go to the reception to get it.
Good luck with your exam!

I gave my exam at New Horizons in Farmington Hills , MI.
My testing center had 2 computers no camera or other stuff, since it was a training institue, it did not have absoloute silence, eventhough I would have liked it. I could sometimes hear instructirs voice eventhough the test area was in a seperate room.
I agree. Here's the link:
