    Congrats on living through it! You said you finished in 2 hrs, everybody is talking about a four hour time limit, did you fly through some of the sections? You also mentioned an ETS online mock test is that the PowerPrep software? And last, were they giving out scores when you finished?

      Hi, Dave (formerly known as Steve?)

      This was actually the first question that Chris answered in this Q&A webinar, which you can watch here: if you weren’t able to attend. Thanks!
