Hi guys.

I've been calling a couple of test-centers in order to schedule an appointment for my test, and the two i've contacted so far seem to only provide a (pardon the french) sh*tty whiteboard, just as I've heard a few test-sites do...
Personally I think this sounds like a bunch of ........

I mean if I need to write something down, during a test like this, centered around programming, a whiteboard is gonna be extremely clumsy and unpractical. I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that I think it would be a serious drawback to use that type of writing equipment during a test like this...

Does anyone know if there is some sort of new rule to only allow a whiteboard these days, or do you think there's a chance to find a test-center that supplies me with pen and paper?

Andreas, I only found this topic now, I take it you've already sat the exam? What did you get in the end?

I started a new topic about this yesterday, but haven't got any replies yet

Pencil and paper at the test centre.
