    I just got on earlier today, but as of right now the site won't load on my computer. Has anybody else had trouble going on the website today?

    Works for me. I just tested logging in.. going to start my first CBTs tomorrow.

    I would suggest clearing your cookies/cache but that'll probably take away your 1 of 2 computers registered for your BR CBTs.

    You may want to check back later or give them a call.

    hm.. now I seem to be having some trouble accessing the site. It's really really slow for me. When I finally get to my exam, the timer isn't showing up and the page is unresponsive.

    Anyone else having similar issues?

    I can't get on the site either. They need to definitely upgrade their servers. It seems like there are certain times during the day that it's easier to access the site. When it hits about 4-6pm central time, it's really slow.

    Yeah I finished the bio section on one of the exams about an hour ago, but as soon as I hit the arrow to get to the the "review" section, the application crashed and hasn't loaded for me since. Thought it was my internet connection/browser at first but all other web pages are working fine.

    Pretty frustrating... :mad:

    Does the website slow down like this every day? Because if it does, that's going to be a problem with my study schedule..

    It's not the browser. I just tried it and it is working fine again. There seems to be times during the day that it slows down considerably. Yesterday, this happened at about 4-6pm central time. Today, it happened from around 4pm to 4:30pm.

    Back to normal here as well... guess we just gotta avoid that time slot.

    I have been taking exams for the past couple weeks at all different times and never had an issue so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Honestly, it seems like you were very lucky. I am taking the test right now as of 8:12pm central time and all of a sudden, the site freezes and I can't get to the next page. This is the 3rd time that this has happened in the past two days. I have used both internet explorer and firefox. Both have the same problems. I don't think chrome would be any better as this doesn't seem like a browser issue. I have also tried different places and it doesn't not work either.

    Yeah this is getting ridiculous. I just started my practice test and the website is already crashing in the middle of the day.

    Has anyone tried calling them and asking if they're working on a fix for this problem? Every time I call, no one picks up.
