We were provided with small desks that you\'d expect in a lecture hall, about the size of the desks that you have to pull out and position. All left handed test takers were given right handed desks and had to sit in a line on the farthest right of the classroom. I think the intent was so that right/left handed test takers create a natural blockade. But left handedness is not accommodated. Our class was also the last to let everyone in, other rooms had already begun taking the test, it\'s likely because we were in the R/S last name group. There\'s free residential parking right off campus so plan ahead and there\'s a Starbucks nearby if you need to do a coffee run before the test. It\'s a college campus so beware of chatter outside and unfortunately the testing rooms have high windows so sunlight ricocheted onto the ground and directly into my eyes. If you can find a better testing location I would HIGHLY suggest it.

They treated me like I was prissy when I asked for a left-handed desk (I am, of course, left-handed). I complained and they gave me a second right-handed desk. The proctor, who did not like me much at this point, tried to take away my tissues saying I can't have them, I told him to ask his supervisor, who said they were okay. Room was warm and proctors were whispering loudly in the first section. Otherwise fine.

The main proctor, in charge of all the other proctors, was very aggressive and made an already stressful day more so. There was quite a long line of people standing outside the building. We were seated and testing within about a half hour of the scheduled time. Proctors did a good job overall, however the desks are incredibly small - the little single size desks with a basket underneath. It was not possible to keep the test sheet and booklet out at the same time.

Standard high school desks, but the larger kinds that are wide enough (versus the really narrow ones that you can barely put both arms on) to keep both the booklet and answer sheet, as well as the allowed materials. There were a few instances when someone's sharpener fell on the floor so we did have to be somewhat conscious of the mild space restrictions.

Free street parking on Reseda Blvd.

Also, personally, classroom setting beats out huge room like (Bonaventure) since it doesn't take as long to get started.

This was a reasonably okay site. The proctors joked around before the test and weren't total hardasses, though they did yell at a girl for not putting her pencil down fast enough, and another was denied entry because her ticket had a "v" in her name instead of a "u".

Pretty unorganized entrance method; too many proctors walking around for such a small class room & little aisles. they literally bumped into me and lurked very slowly throughout the whole test. very distracting.
