Hi Guys, I passed the exam in 2012 (july), obviously I need to update. Is it worth me waiting for the 2015 test now, if so when will that be due for issue?
I have got 6 floor staff that I wish to also take the test, but they are now versed in 2015 v
Cheers
.

Hi Ricky: The TDA Exam is fully updated to the 2015 Rules. So you can take it at any point that is convenient for you.

How long does it typically take to get the email with the url/code to take the test?

I paid thru PayPal four days ago and am still waiting.

I don't know if my post above prompted anyone to look into it, but I got the email this morning.

Thanks.

Really?

I mean to post this two weeks ago, after I took the exam.

One of the questions was regarding cell phone use. One of the choices said "As of the 2013 TDA rules..."

That doesn't give me confidence in that question, or the test in general.

Without revealing the specific language, you refer to a multiple choice question....

...The correct answer to that question is current as of the 2015 rules.

Anyone finding a question for which the accurate answer per 2015 is not listed, please send that concern to: TDAExam@gmail.com

Many thanks!

Hey guys.... I paid via PayPal the fee for the exam on 6/29 but haven't got an e-mail for the exam. I did send an e-mail but haven't heard back. Can someone check into it for me?

Hi Gregg: We have a request for the exam from a sender named Gregg, but the payment is from a company which initials are C - L, Inc.

If that's you, then the code was sent to the e-mail on the receipt  (Gregg@______company.com).  The e-mail would be from tdaexam@gmail.com   If that's you, check your inbox. If not, please let me know.

Passed the test!!! Only got two wrong... one was a multiple choice that I missed one of the answers... the other one I think I just accidentally clicked the wrong one. Oh well, I'm pretty psyched. Now the drunken idiots I play with will have to bow down to the all-knowing TDA-certified host!  ;D

Once you pay via PayPal, is there a time frame the test must be completed by?
I know once you begin you have 100 minutes to complete the test, but once you are sent the link, do you have to click it and do the test that day?
I've read that some people pay, then wait days for the link.
I want to set aside a specific time for me to take the test, which seems difficult if you have to wait days after you pay.
So could I pay today let's say, and receive the link in a few days, but not actually take the test until next week?
Does the link expire?

OK, so if I follow the links to take the test it'll be for the newest rules? Just want to confirm because the other thread with the list of certified players still is showing 2015 test certifications.
