Proctor was inexperienced, messed up instructions in the beginning, and was standing at the front at the podium texting on her phone, smiling down the whole time.
2 other proctors walking around were also distracting, and when they sat down in the front, one kept closing her eyes and was seated too close to me, making me nervous.

Do you have any additional comments?
Desks were far too small. I had heard others complain, but had failed to take into consideration the new logic games format which requires the entire test booklet to be opened displaying both pages.

Proctors walked around the room far too frequently and were unfamiliar with which items were to be permitted on test takers' desks.

I was also hassled over my California ID because I wasn't wearing glasses at the time the photo was taken. This was my driver's license, mind you, not the passport photo which I had taken a week prior. I explained that it would be unreasonable for someone to anticipate their appearance on test day two years in advance and plan their drivers license photo accordingly (a sentiment held by this ill informed individual's superior, as well).

Proctor annoyances aside, I feel that the desk size really did affect my performance on the games. If I end up retaking the test, I will be sure to avoid this center at all costs.
