    I've been doing a lot better on the PAT angle problems by covering up the arms of the angles on my laptop screen with my fingers and focusing on the small corner of the angle.

    Would I be reprimanded if I were to use such tactics at the Prometric center?

    I specifically asked this when I walked in and they said do what you want, maybe they will get new screens, lol. I think it depends on the proctors, but I had no issue with it.

    Technically you are not supposed to. I wouldn't risk getting kicked out for it.

    When you go to the test, ASK. Practice not touching so if they say you can't you are prepared to not do so. If you can, more power to you.

    I think you should call ahead of time and ask... If they say no, then you will still have time to work out a new strategy.

    It depends on proctor, but I think you are not allowed to touch the screen!
