Ajutp,

 

This Pearson Vue facility was new to me so I made sure I was an hour early to find the location.  By the time I found the building and third-floor suite, it was about 40 minutes until they opened (my test time was at 8:00 AM).

 

I went to the car and grabbed a book to review and a small bag with my two ID's, a snack bar and a bottle of water.  The testing center had a waiting area outside the test center where I reviewed my notes until they opened.  

 

Some other people showed up for their tests and before I knew it they opened the center.  While I waited in line to check in, I read the terms and agreements from the test facility.  I provided my ID's, and told them what test I was taking.  They asked me to pronounce and spell my name, scanned my palm, and then took my photograph.  I placed my belongings in a locker after demonstrating that my phone was off.

 

They sent me to the testing/Proctor area where I was palm scanned and re-verified my test.  I had to do a full pat down, inverted my pockets, and my reading glasses were inspected.  

 

I have been taking proctored tests since 1994 so I am familiar with these procedures.  I asked for and inserted earplugs to limit distractions.  I was escorted into the testing area.

 

About two hours later I had submitted the test for grading.  I prefer to take the time I need to answer the question in front of me and move on to the next question.  I do not review questions since I have proven to myself that I am more likely to change a correct answer to a wrong one.

 

After that, I raised my hand and was escorted out of the testing area and reverified my palm scan.  

 

I went back to the entrance and was provided a printout of the test results.  I saw the one word I was looking for "Congratulations" and knew I passed.  

 

I picked up my stuff from the locker and left to see my wife.

 

My wife was happy to hear I passed!!

 

She handed me the CCSP lapel pins she picked up at the store at the 2017 (ISC)2 Congress in Austin, TX.   With that and a kiss, I was off to work.

 

Paul
