I took the VA-BC Exam today and passed :).
I just would like to share my experience with everyone especially to those who are considering to take the exam in the future. I used the VACC Study Guide and CRNI textbooks for my study materials. Google was also very helpful .
My appointment at Prometric was at 2:30pm but I arrived 1.5 hrs early. The receptionist asked me if I would like to take the exam earlier so I said yes. She then told me to place my belongings in the locker and bring my ID card. By the way, as of this writing, only 1 form of identification is required for the exam so I showed her my state ID. I was scanned, given instructions then asked to sign in the logbook. I was then handed a pencil and a scratch paper (which I never used). She guided me to my cubicle placing the ID card and locker key on the desk. FYI there is no break in between the test, you are actually allowed to leave but your test time will continue to run (I never went for a break myself).
The exam was for 2.5 hrs (total of 150 questions but only 125 will be scored) and it took me almost 2 hrs to finish after throughly reviewing my answers. No worries, a tutorial will be shown first and will allow you plenty of time to practice. Time only begins once you're ready to end your tutorial.
I knew the result right away after I pressed END. The word Congratulations in boldface was the first thing I saw (Phew!).
I left the room then the receptionist told me that I passed and handed me a printed copy of the result. I'll be expecting to receive my certificate and wallet card within four to six weeks.
So overall, it was a great experience . I was just happy that I passed the exam.
Best of luck to you!
