Hi Erika,
I believe the 50-minute break has to be taken in one block between test sections. When I took the NCS exam, I took my break for lunch after the second section. This document from the ABPTS describes the exam day guidelines: http://www.abpts.org/uploadedFiles/ABPTSorg/Specialist_Certification/ABPTS_SpecialistCertificationExamDayGuidelines.pdf

Thank you for this question! It won’t be in time for your exam, but I will add some information about exam day logistics to the site before the next exam cycle to help next year’s participants.
