So the exams as you know are long. I have a FAR test planned for early July. I expect my attention span to whither quickly. I need blood pumping through my veins to keep that attention span going. I would LOVE to be able to do like 50 pushups, bicycle crunches, or whatever…Does prometric typically make you take your break in a designated break room area? Or can I find an empty corner of a hallway and do my weird pushups alone? I mean I could ask the damn test admin how they felt about it, and they would probably think I'm a total psycho. But most accountants are anyway.

Here might be a good test…Would YOU feel comfortable asking the test proctor? 

I suppose since they are trained to have giant sticks up their asses, they will make it easy for me and say "NO YOU FREAK GO IN THAT BREAK ROOM AND SHUT UP. CPAs are supposed to be overweight and unhealthy alcoholics who don't do push ups."
