Hotel rooms
We have a negotiated rate for a limited number of rooms at the Hilton Rosemont hotel. Please reference the ABR when calling the hotel at (847) 678-4488. The special rate includes a buffet breakfast for each day of the exam.
Where to report
Exam takers must first report to the Hilton Rosemont.
Parking
The Hilton Rosemont has paid parking on site.
Report time
Please show up no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled report time. The clock to complete the exam doesn’t start running until you’re seated at the center.
What’s allowed at the center
You should bring a government-issued photo ID along with the exam ticket and claim ticket you receive at check-in. If you bring food or snacks, please place them in a one-gallon, clear plastic bag. Our staff will have bags available at the drop-off locations. Drinks must be placed in resealable containers. Food and drink must be stored in lockers in the exam center lobby. Candidates are welcome to bring jackets or sweaters into the center.
What’s not allowed at the center
You must leave cellphones and tablets (powered off), watches, wallets that don’t fit in your pocket, hats or caps, purses, luggage, backpacks, study materials, books, and notes either in your hotel room or at the drop-off location. Exceptions for religious headwear are allowed if requests are made in advance.
Where to drop off luggage and other items
The drop-off and sign-in area is on the first floor of the Hilton Rosemont; signs will direct you to the location.
Results
It takes between eight and 10 weeks to receive exam results. Once an exam is delivered, the scoring process allows us to evaluate all questions individually to ensure that they meet our performance standards. Any that do not are evaluated again by subject matter experts and may be eliminated from scoring.
