1. What is the best way to prepare for the remote/ online exam format? I understand that one cannot have pieces of paper around the desk.

2. At what time and where can someone download their mastered PMP formulas before starting to answer questions?

you are right: pencil/paper are not allowed during the exam. Instead, a built-in whiteboard and calculator are provided by the system. My recommendation is to get familiar with the whiteboard at the following link: home.pearsonvue.com/Standalone-pages/Whiteboard.aspx
Also, review all the requirements and restrictions for the online exam and set up your workplace accordingly; details are available at the following links:
home.pearsonvue.com/pmi/onvue [last updated: Dec 7th - so this may be not fully aligned with the new exam]

Could you please clarify what you mean in question #2? I'm not sure I understand it correctly - as you are not allowed to have anything within arm's reach, including books or any kind of notes.

Hope this helps,
