It was engaging and fun to just try communicating in German.
The time wasn't reflective of the eventual start time.

The proctors were patient and clear in their instructions. They executed the several parts of the exam on time, efficiently. I'm glad I took the test, and I look forward to eventually taking the B1 exam.
The listening part of the exam was much more difficult than the other parts. The conversations were spoken quite quickly, faster than I normally hear on news broadcasts such as Deutsche Welle and Tagesschau. I need to improve my listening skills, but it seemed like maybe the listening portion was maybe a bit out of scale difficulty-wise with the other parts.

It was the perfect environment to take my Goethe exam. I had a very positive experience.
