I can't tell if I got lucky with a lead Proctor who had done this plenty of times before apparently, or if everyone at the center was as on their game and relaxed as my proctors were. The center was pretty darn quiet. Proctors talked between themselves little if at all. No writing on the board with the time, but in my opinion this creates more hassle than otherwise (bring a watch and just reset to it to 12:00 every section...). Biggest concern by far before I went was the desk size. I asked around and it turns out that this center has some "high-school" style rooms and some rooms with tables. I ended up in the former, and the desks were adequate. Yes, your book will be hanging off the left a couple inches when you put your scantron on to bubble...but get over it, it's not going to change your score. At one point my highlighter DID role off the floor though, but the proctor promptly walked over to help me out without me even signaling. The college is nice, the waiting room is air conditioned. They start the test quickly, which is SO nice. Simply put, the freedom from distractions, stupid proctors, long wait times, complicated parking etc, MORE than outweighs slightly tiny desks. Read the horror stories of test day and you'll see that this place is quite frankly just well suited for this exam.
