Thanks.

1) yes but just adhere to the guidelines. Meaning you can, but I believe NY still only allows blue or black pens for the essay day, only old school sharpened pencils on day 2. I recall highllighters etc are disallowed, though somehow a few people slipped in with them which, side note, I found really irritating because I was big into color coding and that would have been a great asset but at the end of the day it's best to just follow the rules and not risk it.

2) yes the room is accessible - when I took it people on the MBE day were reviewing notes of flashcards during lunch which...I mean if that gives peace of mind for the afternoon session, that's cool but youre not going to learn or remember something flying through notes on 7 topics on lunch break... anyway, yes it is a accessible and you can get your lunch, but depending on your location and the belongings room it has, there may be a bit of a traffic jam. I'd be shocked if it was so extensive as to render you unable to grab and eat your food, but I'm just saying that if you are fortunate to be relatively close to the door or if you finish a section in time to get out early, I would say to either walk quickly out to beat the people further from the door or grab it first thing, respectively.


Great! Thanks for your reply. I plan to use only pencils and not highlighters etc.
If there are any exam takers from Albany, do you know how far is the personal belonging room from convention hall? Also, will there be enough plug points to charge our laptops?

Just read the security policy- no watches at all?

Also i want to bring an external mouse (mines attach via mini usb and runs on battery but there’s no “wire”)- is that considered wireless? The policy says no wireless mouse. Or must i bring an old fashioned one with a long cord?

Anyone with previous experience? I’m at Buffalo if that makes any difference.

Thanks!

Ok so in response to both of your questions in order as seen above.: I just googled their security policy which does say no analog watches but the strange thing there is in the bottom right it is dated October or November of November 2017. I can only assume that new rules were adopted for some reason and perhaps watches were one of them, for some reason? However to my knowledhe this would be the first exam with that rule so check your sheet that comes with or around your ticket email and double check. It could have been an error/oversight.

Technically speaking, no you would not be allowed to use that mouse and they do want the old school wire. While I never would risk it, especially with my luck, much like the ban on highlighters, some people manage to slip in with the ones you asked about, which will be irritating to see, so don't think i am messing with you - I had the same issue. I am not suggesting you try to get one in, I was too neurotic and nervous to NOT strictly adhere to guidelines and I think that's the best policy; I am just warning you thst you may see people with the wireless mouse but they're technically not allowed. Unfoetunately I did not take it in buffalo.

As far as Albany, the location belonging room is not very far from the exam room. If I recall there was a large waiting area that has the personal belonging room immediately off of it, then as they let people in and you move forward there were bathrooms...then you went to the right and either wait in line or walk the maybe 100/200 feet to the security checkpoint which was right outside the exam room.

*LAPTOPS*
Since several people asked, the room is enormous (in Albany anyway) and crammed full of tables with more extension cords and corresponding outlets everywhere you look. Should you still fully charge your laptop before the exam? Absolutely. However, when I took it there it appeared there was an outlet for use next to or under every table. But make sure it's fully charged in case there is a power issue or the outlet isn't workin for some reason (and if you think it will die after the AM session, talk to a protor about your outlet or using another one to recharge during break).

Hope this was at least somewhat helpful and hopefully the watch thing is a mistake, keep your eye out for that. I'm going to pass out now because I'm still awake for some reason but Nyquil definitely just kicked in.

If either of you have questions feel free to ask/contact me...whether it's how long of a commute from A to B to food places


Thank you so much for the offer. I'll take you up on that. I'm staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Albany Medical Center. Looks like about a mile away from Empire Plaza. Is that a reasonable expectation to walk there for the exam? Not sure what that mile is comprised of (i.e. sidewalks or highways)? I hear Albany doesn't allow Uber or Lyft so was hoping to walk. Also, was it complete chaos during lunch break or did you have a reasonable chance to get out of the testing center and get some food without feeling rushed and having to compete against everyone else for a spot in line to make sure you were back on time?

Thanks a lot for your help.


Ok so that's actually great news because for food and so on you may not even need to go outside, but I'll get to that. First, I would normally say yes that is walking distance but since it is February and, well, Albany, it may be freezing and I would be careful making the walk bevause of the possibility of ice patches. However, good news: Albany does have uber and lyft now, and I would be surprised if your hotel isn't having people shuttled to the test site, so you certainly have options. They aren't highway roads, and I think almost the entire area has sidewalks so again, if you want to walk it's feasible.

As for lunch, it's chaos when everyone rushes out and if you cut it too close to the time allowed back may hit a traffic jam which won't matter as much on day 1, but on day 2 people also tend to line up to re-sharpen pencils. I had time to get food without any problem though, just scope places out on the way in and know there are a few more further down. There is a sort of cafeteria with decent food from pizza to salads, a McDonald's, some coffee and bakery stands, and I there were a couple other places that didn't have seating but were open and you could just order and find wherever to sit. In other words, you may be more anxious about this on day 1 but just keep an eye on the time - there are a few clocks around and I definitely recommend the good old watch - and you'll be fine. Day 2? Well I would just recommend bringing extra sharpened pencils so you don't have to worry but if you think you'll need to hop in that line try and take a shorter lunch that day to get back earlier so you don't get held up at security or at the sharpeners. Finally, as promised, when it comes to breakfast, coffee, dinner, or perhaps needing a very stiff drink after day 2, part of the hotel is literally over a bar and grill, and there is a Panera and a Starbucks one to two doors down, but I THINK you can get to at least one of the three without having to to outside, but I can't recall which.

I think fresh air could be good, but I couldn't imagine driving conditions and whether I'd trust myself driving during the break. Hard to remember back from years ago, but I just don't think I'd have the focus to drive well. Walking somewhere is a better call because you need fresh air, and have more control of time.

Fresh air is good. Unless it's snowing or sleeting or below freezing and windy - then all bets are off. I also believe Ray was talking about driving herself; hence the uber/lyft mention. There will definitely be traffic that I wouldn't want to deal with, though it should not be as packed as July. That said, I believe July has 2 major locations as well as a smaller one in Saratoga, whereas I think February usually only had 1, possibly 2 if Saratoga was open, but I know they don't hold them in the 2 big Albany test centers in February.

I asked around a bit, apparently they are sending seat tickets later today or tomorrow. It's usually ~2 weeks prior.

It says to verify the version installed. Same as yours?

I didn't receive any examsoft email, which has me a bit worried. I bought a new Mac in December and downloaded the program in late Dec., so maybe I just downloaded the most updated version and don't need to verify? It's on my to-do list to look into this further today.

Thanks for the previous responses b290 & ubebarstudying.

Can anyone provide guidance to me on what strategies you use to keep your essays within time? I typically spend 45-55 mins writing per essay in the sample questions I’ve answered and I just don’t know how to keep it down! Obviously hoping the answer is not that I’ll get a subject I haven’t prepared for and can’t answer!

Secondly, after receiving email from examsoft/examplify I logged on and submitted a dry run, I didn’t get any message about a new version or anything, despite installing at first opportunity, in December I think. Does this match with other people’s experience or should I see a message about updating to a new version etc?

Thanks all and hope studies are going well.

My experience w/ exam soft as well which I've blasted this thread over. Hoping we're not alone in not receiving the update or whatever it was, but my seat ticket did note "laptop" taker.

Got my seat ticket too, @ Armory. Got the lunch email as well yesterday. Seems a little expensive but worth it just to have one less thing to hassle over.
