I took the exam on the today and I got the "Out of Resource" Error that others were talking about and then I wasn't able to use anymore Dnd questions. Afterwards, I had to navigate the whole test with the keyboard, which really slowed me down. After I finished going through all the questions with about 30 minutes left, I started reviewing my answers and then the whole system froze. We called the Prometric Technal Support and they said to restart the machine and to move to a new machine with more memory. They ended up moving me to a machine (Prometric level 2) with 128k of memory and then I only had 5 minutes left. The good thing is that the DnD questions worked but I was only able to fix a few of them. If I had the full 30 minutes, I could have reviwed the whole test and answer all the missed Dnd questions.
If you haven't taken the test, make sure to tell the Prometric testing center that you should be using a machine with at least 128MB ram and Windows2000 if possible.
