Run System Test The system test will take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. You will be prompted to take photos of yourself and your exam workspace. To prepare your exam workspace move all books and writing objects out of arm’s reach, unplug additional monitors and computers, and clear your walls of any writing (e.g., on whiteboards). You will also need an ID and phone (which must be set out of arm’s reach after check-in.)
In addition to meeting system test requirements for minimum screen resolution, be sure to review and confirm your display settings for scaling, prior to checking in and launching your exam. Scale settings should be set to 100% (for users running Windows) or default (for Mac users).
If your screen settings meet the minimum resolution settings but scale settings are set above 100% it is likely that the exam content will not render properly on-screen, causing a less than desirable experience during delivery of your CompTIA exam.
To avoid delays and added stress during your testing appointment, complete the system test prior to the start of your exam appointment.
