"Effective January 1, 2013, in lieu of scratch paper and pencils, exam candidates will be provided with two double-sided, laminated, colored sheets called “noteboards,” as well as a fine point marker for making notations. Candidates will be directed to write their examination Launch Code (from their NTS) on their noteboards. Candidates cannot bring any paper or pencils to the workstation in the testing room.
If needed, candidates may request additional noteboards from the test center staff, but candidates must first turn in the original noteboards they received in order to get a new supply. Candidates will be required to return the noteboards to the test center staff when their examination is complete.
Candidates are advised to at least try the new noteboards. If you have any issues with them, please note your concerns in the candidate survey at the end of the test session.
