  5. You will be notified via email of your test score and pass/fail status within 15 days of returning your answer sheet.

  7. You are responsible for keeping a copy of your test and answers.  Please send the answer sheet only.
  8. It is your responsibility to read each question carefully and thoroughly. Many of the questions require a great deal of thought and analysis. Because the regulations are complicated and real life situations may be complex, some of the questions are complicated and complex. As you know, the answer to a question may hinge on one word. Some of the questions are intentionally difficult to give you a chance to demonstrate your expertise and ability to research, analyze, and understand the regulations.
  9. You must read each question and answer choice literally. The questions and answer choices include enough details for you to choose the correct answer for each question. You will find the details in the answer choices are key to knowing the correct answer to a specific question. Generally speaking, we cannot provide you with additional facts or guidance to help with answering questions. If you have specific issues with a particular question which you feel makes that item impossible to answer, you may alert us by attaching a short description of your question to the answer sheet.
