The Day of the Exam

This CPA Prep Tip concerns getting to the exam early.

A few days prior to taking your exam, call your Prometric Testing Center and confirm your appointment; leave as little as possible to chance.

On the day of your exam, plan on getting to the testing site about 30-60 minutes ahead of your appointment time. Leave all study materials in your car or at home. Prometric asks that you arrive 30 minutes early, but they may ask you to wait up to 30 minutes to start your test. If you have to wait, relax in your car or outside. Avoid tensing up.
