Has anyone else noticed that during the 4-hour practice exams, their response time slows? I took my first practice exam at home and it kept getting slower and slower after about 2 hours. By hour 3, it was taking 30-45 seconds to respond to my answers and go to the next question. Eventually, I received error messages. I wasn't able to to answer all questions so failed - but if I re-calculated the scores out of the questions answered, I passed. s. I blamed it on the poor wi-fi at my house so made plans to try it at work.

I tried again this Saturday at my office with a direct hard-wired connection. Again, it started getting "laggy" about 2-2.5 hours in. By hour three, it again taking 15-30 seconds to accept my responses and go to the next screen. This time, I got through all but three questions, but it was super nerve-wracking and distracting - and I had no time to review my responses.

I took both practice exams in Chrome. I plan to take a third practice exam this coming Saturday and use Microsoft Edge. But I would love feedback. My biggest concern is that this will happen in the real exam. If there's something I need to do to my computer to make it stay responsive through a 4-hour online exam, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
