Everything I've read mentions to not have anything within arm's reach. I had my entire workstation on my desk and took everything off and put stacked on a bench behind me. Looks like a mess, but it's out of arm's reach. I usually have a mini fan on my desk since it's hot where i live and i don't have AC or ceiling fans. Will they allow a floor tower fan in the room while I test?

Hi Taylor, it would be best to check with Pearson Vue directly to see if it would be an issue. A couple of things that come to mind would be:

- Noise: would this get picked up on your mic?
- Distraction: if you would be looking off-screen at it, that may trigger something in their moderating system.

Best to check with Pearson Vue to ensure you have a smooth test-taking experience.

Thanks Kyle. To close the loop on this, I was able to have my tower fan in the room. No issues with the proctor.
