My experience in US prometric center for step 1 was awesome.. the ppl were so good , and helpful. it wasnt crowded at all.. but there were other students who were taking diff exams,..but no one had 8 hr long exam so i was alone in the end .. i got my date in the last 2 weeks i guess.. i think that depends upon the exam season and the city.. i took step 1 in december in oklahoma city.. so maybe that month was easy to get..

Hi ebeer, could you please tell me if at the prometric center they had somebody that goes in the room every once in a while and walk around the room to check on the exam takers...because I took the prometric practice exam and they did that, that got me a little bit out concentration and I wonder if they do that at all prometric centers?
thank you in advance

Ya they did that.. but they were coming just to see if we needed anything or not.. or in case if someone is getting disturbed.. but i didnt get disturb by them at all.. step 1 anxiety was at its peak..
but as i said, aftr 3-4 hours i was alone in the center, that time proctors didnt come inside..
