Gleim Time Management System
Question: If I take a break during the exam, does it count toward my total amount of time that I have to take the exam? For example, the Financial Section is 4 hours – if I take a 5 minute break, does this leave me with 3 hours 55 minutes to actually take the exam?
Answer: Yes, if you take a break during the exam, the clock keeps going on your total amount of time to take the exam.
