This is an absolute perfect test center in almost every way. Parking is right in front of the building and free. The campus was completely empty and quiet. People are seated at rows of large tables that span 1/3 of the room each and, as such, you can spread everything as far apart as you want. Everyone has a seat empty to their left and right. Also means that left handed people face no issues.

The only thing that detracts from the experience is that the chairs are terrible and can be distracting. The chairs are built on a strange chasis that is directly connected to the table and are not connected to the ground. The chairs remind me of an upside down luxo lamp (from pixar) that is connected to the tables. They make a really loud squeaking sound whenever they move. If everyone is fidgeting during the test, the sound can be quite distracting. If someone is tapping their foot or rocking back and forth, it'll cause it to squeak.
