I find it interesting that CAS seems to keep having issues with operational risk surrounding their exams

I would love to do this at Prometric. No compatibility concerns, option of multiple bathroom breaks, standardized exam locations. Sigh

But, on the downside, no snacks. Not even the quiet ones.

Speaking of, can we just mute the mic and eat some chips? Is there a prescribed decibel limit on these snacks?
