Introduction and Some Questions about the Exam process

Hello Everyone,
I have been a developer since the late 90s and have worked across many languages and platforms. Last year our company made a tech switch to node from a full MS stack and we have been training up. As the former manager, self demoted to sr engineer on my team I am trying to lead the team by example. I'm here to get certified with plans on sitting for the services exam shortly after this one.

I will not ask about the exam questions. I just need to know how to set up my testing space. I have heard some nightmares about AWS (which I'm also working on) remote exams, so just trying to make sure I have everything correct going in.

  1. My laptop does not have a webcam, I did purchase one specifically for the test. Will this be a problem?
  2. My office is open to the house so I plan to take my exam in my son's room when he is at his mother's house. He has a desk/table, a bed, a tv and some furniture in there. Is that good enough?
  3. Is there anything else I should concern myself with as far as my setup?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello @fcioanca,

    I had reviewed that when I purchased the training materials and exam. I think unless there are other unlisted gotcha's I should be OK.

    Thanks for the link and reply.
