Default Quick question on CBT

Never taken a CBT exam before, and had a question.

What does it look like? Are all 30 questions listed on the screen at the same time? Will I be able to skip around questions rather effortlessly?

You can only see one problem on the screen, with a left arrow and right arrow on the bottom. you can skip forward and back to other problems and come back to problems later. So you can do them in any order but if you skip say problem 3 and you finish problem 15 and want to go back to 3 you press the left arrow 12 times to get back there

Eh, not exactly right. There's a "Review" button that lists all the question numbers and whether or not you answered them. You can directly go to another question that way.

You can also "Mark" a question that doesn't affect grading in any way; it's for your personal use if you wanted to use it as a bookmark or something.

There was a "practice exam" sort of thing. No idea why they got rid of it. But yeah, AG is right. There is also a timer and a button to show you exhibits (normal table). But yeah, pretty normal. You get some time at the beginning to test navigate. Timer doesn't start when you sit down.

What does it look like after your hit submit? Does it give the results "instantly", or do you have to go through a long wait or surveys first?

Ok, good. I guess I know what I'll be doing! Funny thing, if they just gave the survey after giving the results, I'd be more than happy to do it. But before, I just want to see my score.

You'll only get a preliminary pass/fail (which is 99.99% correct) immediately after the exam. You won't be able to view your actual score for another 2-ish months on the SOA website.
