How exactly are the CALC AB test administered? There is a calc, and non calc part, and two sections. The first part is MC, but after a certain # of q's, you are suppose to use a calc, but not the first part. How are they going to make sure I dont use a calc for the first part where it wasnt intended if its part of the same section? Do i just take out my calculator?

Also, Section2 is free-responses, which says some are noncalc, and soem are calc. How are they going to know which ones I use calc and which ones I dont?
