Before you start
Read through the do’s and don’ts below
Be sure you understand the rules and avoid having your test results delayed by a test review. Your passing grade could be overturned if a review can’t confirm you completed the test without help.
Take a sample test
Once you are ready to begin your test, you’ll have the option to take a sample test and get a feel for the testing procedure. Otherwise, you can start your web camera and begin your test.
If you don’t pass
You’ll need to purchase a retest for a test you didn't pass. Try again whenever you're ready, there's no waiting period to retake a test.
If you purchased a test bundle with more than one test:
- take all the tests before you purchase your retest bundle
- you only have to retake the tests you didn't pass
Dos and don'ts of taking the test
- set-up for your test in a well lit, quiet space away from people
- face the camera
- always keep your face fully visible to the camera
- keep your eyes on the screen as much as possible
- pick-up or answer your cell phone
- talk with other people

- look-up information in textbooks or online

Tips for avoiding test result delays caused by a review:
