Question CS location

I am curious if there are differences in terms of passing rate between different locales? How come Chicago and Houston are popular vs elsewhere?

Oh god, not again - one of these posts.
there are SO MANY of these kinds of posts all over the forum. I have answered to so many of them and still, it comes up all over again.
All I can say is, it does NOT matter where you take the exam. Where you take it does NOT influence whether you will pass or not. Whether you are prepared or not, whether you know the material, that is what makes the difference.
Please stop these kinds of posts. I am sick of people who failed saying they failed because they took it in location X rather than in location Y.
When I was studying I met someone who traveled to Atlanta just because he or she had heard it was easier to pass there. This person also warned me and told me I would not pass if I took it in Philly. Well, turns out I passed in Philly, and this person failed in Atlanta. I never believed these rumors, and I am so glad I didnt. How should you chose the location to take the exam? Chose the one that is closest to you, or the one where you have a place to stay. I chose the one that was closest to me, never listened to those rumors and never once looked back with regret.
