ENVIRONMENTAL DISTRACTERS

Every attempt, within reason, is made to ensure a quiet and comfortable testing environment for all candidates.  However, last minute needs and emergencies by building operators cannot be anticipated.  We suggest that you bring appropriate clothing with you (i.e., sweatshirt) to help you adapt to a cooler or warmer climate in the examination room.  Bring ear plugs if you are very sensitive to noise distractions.
