Tips for making exam day go smoothly
Prepare for test day
The night before your exam, get a good night’s sleep! The day of your test, arrive at the center early, so that you have plenty of time to park and get settled. Be sure to bring a government-issued ID card and your Prometric scheduling confirmation to the test center. Each testing organization has different requirements about what you’ll need to check in and sit for your exam and what materials you can or can’t access during your exam.
Knowing in advance what to expect at the test center helps test takers be more confident and comfortable on exam day.
Getting familiar with the look, feel and experience of a test center in advance of an exam will minimize pre-test mistakes.
