I may have to take the exam from home online. I want to know if a calculator and paper / pencils will be allowed. My first exam at the testing center, they provided me a calculator and aa plastic pad and pen for using.

Alan,

No. You may not have anything whatsoever on your desk during an at-home exam. That includes pen, paper, water, calculator, etc.

You must use the on-screen whiteboard only to make notes.

Hello,
They will not allow Pen & Paper. You will have online whiteboard you can use during exam.

thank you for this information. One of the other respondents directed me to a whiteboard simulator page which put me at ease! Cheers, Alan
