The AL site seems to be overloaded so don't panic if you get a freeze even in Chrome or Firefox. It will be saved. If you accidentally did it in Explorer (if you clicked the link straight from the AL notification email it may have opened straight into Explorer) switch browsers and all will be fine.
You will know you are done when it shows you your scores. AL will email you a link to training videos based on your scores within 24 hours or so of taking the test.
