The NTM TD 1504 exam is a timed
(one-hour) Internet-based Library exam. A valid driver's license or a
student ID card is required to take the exam. You must
be registered for the 1504 exam to take the test.
You will use your Wildcat

when you arrive to take the test.
You have three chances to take
the exam; the first attempt and two retakes. If you do not pass the
exam, pay the cashier $5, and bring the receipt with you to take the second

student services building.
You will know your score as soon as you
complete the test. 73% or above is passing.
