Question Step 1 Tutorial Block At the Exam

Hi there,

I am having my exam in a week. Can anyone tell me more about this intro video at the beginning (Introduction Block)? Can I skip it?

Any buttons which I should definitely not press?

Can I go back to Block 1 when I started Block 2 to revise marked ones?

Links are appreciated.

Do you think it's worth it taking a test drive experience?

You can practice the tutorial by downloading the official Free 150.

At the exam you can skip the tutorial, except when it checks your headphone volume (don't skip that).

Once you finish a block (one hour) you cannot go back to it.

You cannot install the Free 150 on a Mac, you have to have Windows Xp, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.
I suggest you go to Internet Cafe or public library or borrow your friend's laptop.

I just watched the video, so if I want to skip the tutorial, can I just click "end block" straight after checking the headphones? Or do I have to click next, next .... pretty quickly til I have reached the last item?

help is very appreciated since my exam will be in 2 days.

question? if for example you finish a block with 4-5 mins left, Does that get added to your break time?
