    Hey,so.. according to the ADA regulation, you are NOT supposed to touch the screen? Does any one know for sure? if you get caught, your score can get voided?
    Realistly, ppl say that it's moslty depend on your testing center, so do you just ask before the test??

    Lastly, for people who wear contacts normally, did you guys wear glasses on your test day? You know how Kaplan says wear glasses caz your eyes will get tired if you wear contacts. Any insights??

    Thanks..

      Don't touch the screen because there is a chance that your scores get voided.

      I did wear my glasses and I think I was more comfortable, but I think it is up to you. If you take practice tests with contacts and you feel OK then I don't see any problem to wear contacts on your test day.

        If you wear glasses every so often with no problem, wearing glasses might be a good idea. My eyes dry out easily with contacts when staring at a screen!

        However, people that are used to contacts sometimes get headaches when switching to glasses, especially if they aren't the same prescription.

          this post makes me nervous...i got really close up to the screen with my eyes and fingers but never actualy touched it.

          considering i took my dats may 8th, would they have gotten back to me with a "your scores are voided becasue you tocuhed the screen" letter by now?

          has this acually happened to anybody out there before?
