I worked from a screen when studying for June, and it put me at a slight disadvantage when taking the test. I usually just work from the screen and bubble on a bubble sheet after every question, but I noticed immediately on test day that this was a little counterproductive since it's tougher to do that with a full test booklet. Ended up circling my answers and transferring them to the bubble sheet after every page, but this almost cost me points at the end of each section. I wasn't used to it, so I almost forgot to transfer my bubbles every time! Didn't end up losing points, but it was a close call.
Also, it depends on how you approach the test. If you take notes during RC, like a majority of people do, you're going to want to print. I don't take notes during RC since I find them distracting, so it wasn't a difficult transition for me.
Overall, I don't regret not printing, since it didn't really turn out poorly for me and it saved me a lot of money in ink and saved my conscience in paper, but I did feel like I was at a very slight disadvantage on test day trying out a system that I didn't practice with.
A question popped into my head as I read this -- is the bubble sheet is detached from the test booklet?
