I have a double hernia but i dont have the insurance to get it tested/documente.d it would cost $4k+ It hurts to sit for more than an hour at a time. I have a standing desk to remediate this at home.

Anyways i have a few questions

IF i am done with a section early. Can I get up an unlimited number of times for bathroom breaks? I want to walk around or stretch, is that fine? If I have 8 min left on a section, what happens to the timer? wth is 'break mode'?
How about in the room itself? I heard this is a huge no no?

You're not allowed to move around in the testing room. The timer is always running during your exam (from the time your exam starts). Whether they're okay with what you're doing is probably going to come down to just how unlimited is "unlimited" :)

As long as you inform them before starting the exam, I don't think they'll have a problem with a break every 15-20 minutes. Don't confirm the last question in a section before stepping out though. Confirming the last question in either IR or Quant will trigger the prompt for a break. Make sure that you're back in time to confirm the last question. No answer is accepted unless confirmed by the test taker (this has been confirmed by people we trust at the GMAC, and should override what GMAC/Pearson customer care reps have been telling some of the other test takers here).
