Have you ever been through ATA certification keyboarded exam?

Please share your experience with more focus on:

1. Exam time, volume and topics.
2. Are electronic offline/online dictionaries allowed?
3. Is the software used for exam smooth and bug-free? I ask this question because I read this: "If problems occur during a keyboarded exam, ATA will only reimburse the exam fee." on ATA website.

Any advise is highly appreciated.

Thank you

3 hr exam, no electronics allowed Apr 12, 2014

I have read their instructions and i'm sure electronics are not allowed. But you can take as many paper dictionaries and written material as you can! You will not have access to the internet. I also think that the exam time does not exceed three hours.
All the best!
