My section of the alphabet was walked about a half mile away to another building to take it. The room was fine, but it made us start rather late and made it inconvenient getting back to my car.

This is a large testing center and we had to wait in a large lecture hall before the proctors split the group up and took us to other buildings. This process took at least half an hour, and then check-in for roughly 35-40 people in my room took an inordinate amount of time. Once we finally started after 2pm, everything went smoothly. My only complaint is that I sat in the front row and the proctors were whispering to each other and walking back and forth around the room, which was slightly distracting.

I really enjoyed taking it in the Mechanical Engineering Building because we had long desks that allowed us to spread out as much as we needed. Sign-in was a little lengthy and the main issue was the lack of women's bathrooms on the first floor, where I was testing.

I'm not sure if this was a test center issue or a proctor issue, but the amount of shuffling around in order find a decent room was unbelievable. My room was moved twice (once from a large auditorium to a smaller classroom in a different building, and then once from that classroom to a different classroom that was supposed to be larger but was in fact the same size). 1.5 hours later the test began. The proctors were pretty good on time after that, but I reported to test center at 11:30 am and did not leave test center until 6 pm. Why should a 3.5 hour test take almost 7 hours from start to finish?

Also parking in the garage was quite expensive and they don't take credit cards, so bring lots of cash!
