How much are the online exams and how to order?

Exams are paid for in advance. Each order will be associated with an invoice number. That invoice number will automatically appear in the invoice drop-down when scheduling the class or on the Invoice Remaining tab.  The invoices can only be accessed using the FIFO (First in First out) method and will alert you if the wrong invoice is selected.
