TAKE THE MOCK PRACTICE EXAM

DOWNLOAD YOUR EXAM FILES
You have been sent email with the links and instructions to download your exams. You must download prior to your exam. There will not be time to download in the exam room.

BRING YOUR OWN ETHERNET CABLES AND POWER CORDS TO THE EXAM!
Make sure you have a well charged battery and bring a power cord as an emergency power source. If you do not use the wireless you will need a cable to upload your answers at the end of the exam.

IF YOUR PROFESSOR INFORMS YOU THAT YOU WILL BE ELECTRONICALLY SUBMITTING A PAPER OR TAKE HOME EXAM: Familiarize yourself with the instructions. If you are unsure please contact Faculty Support.

REVIEW THE EXAM POLICY!

DOUBLE CHECK YOUR EXAM TIMES. THIS IS THE OFFICIAL SCHEDULE!
