haha no I didn't use the earplugs (I wasn't given any to begin with). I just used my fingers and the sleeves of my shirt.

Center Name : Pearson VUE Wacker Drive (??)
City & Country : Chicago, IL, USA (Wacker Dr. location)
Parking facility : N/A (walked)
Invigilator Reviews : Very nice and accommodating. Helpful. Quick.
Environment : Testing center itself was not bad, fairly quiet, no real complaints. A bunch of construction on the lobby level of the building made it a pain to get into the building, but ended up not being a real problem.
Rating 5/5 : 4/5
Additional Info : Construction on lobby level. Have to walk around to the south entrance and buzz in (at least I did -- it was a Saturday).

Do's & Don't s : Do: kill the exam. Don't: freak out, it's just a test.

Center Name : Pearson Vue , Newark
City & Country : Newark, Delaware, USA
Parking facility : available
Invigilator Reviews : Polite, ok efficient
Environment : I found it very good. Not much noise.
Rating 5/5 : 4.5
Additional Info : toilet is about a minute away so look at it before the exam. I asked for the additional notebook and lady was very slow. I have to attempt 4-6 math questions with virtually no space left to write on. They do not have good time keeping mechanism for breaks. (I am not sure how it happens in another centers)
Debrief Link :
Do's & Don't s : Look at the center a week before. It is little hidden inside the big building.

For the record : I had no distracting females at my centre ... I wish ! There were only dudes, no scope (or interest) for conversation in the test breaks :d

Center Name: Pearson Professional Centres
City & Country: Toronto, Canada
Parking facility: N/A (used public transit)
Invigilator Reviews: Very personable and responsive
Environment: Uncomfortably warm and stuffy inside the testing room. Earplugs and headphones are provided. The computers are Dell, but there isn't much space between the case and the desk forcing you to move the keyboard around (annoying on AWA, but otherwise no need for KB)
Rating: 2/5
Additional Info: You are provided with 2 pens and 1 booklet. They will not let you have more than one booklet so remember to swap out at each interval.
Debrief Link: Coming soon
Do's & Don't s: None come to mind

Seattle area:

Renton: 4/5

Friendly faculty, great parking, not too hard to find. One time coming back into the test it took them a bit because there were a few of us trying to get in, but I got there before my 8 minutes were up.

Seattle/Northgate: 2/5

This testing center is twice as big as most. They have two big rooms, instead of one like I have seen before. Luckily I was taking a Kaplan practice test, because after one break they took a long time to get me back in, and I was a couple minutes late getting back to the test. When I took the real thing the first time I went here and did not do so well. The snarky guy that handed me my test score said, well you can get into WSU with that score (not a competitive school) and I felt like punching him. Given the size of the testing facility there is a greater possibility that you could have trouble getting back in within the 8 minutes BUT if you come during a time that is not that busy you will be able to get in and out super easy since it is so big.
