How to Use a Practice Exam Voucher
Taking an online practice exam is always a good idea, as it can give you an excellent chance to familiarize yourself with the testing process and give you more confidence when it comes time to taking the real thing. In fact, the practice exam questions are mapped to the actual certification exam questions—so taking a practice test can give you a good handle on your readiness level.
If you have an Online Practice Test Voucher, you may use it anytime, on any computer with a Web browser. The voucher is valid for only one practice test experience.

BrowserLockdown2.exe is started by the ActiveX control when Lockdown is engaged at the beginning of an exam. If the Testing Center's security software (firewall, antivirus, anti-spyware, etc.) is not configured to allow this program the same rights as Internet Explorer to access the internet, you may experience:
- A white screen when the exam attempts to start.
- The tutorial loads and works but some or all of the exam content does not load
- Questions start loading but never complete
Note: If the Internet is accessed through an authenticating proxy server and the system is not configured to automatically pass credentials to it, you will experience the symptoms listed above.
Security configurations should be changed so that full access to the internet is given to BrowserLockdown2.exe - usually by the IT department or personnel due to access rights.
