I arrived at the West Valley Flying Club in Palo Alto around 12:40pm for my written test. After a bit of setup and inspecting my stuff, the test got started right around 1:00pm.

In the first 10-20 minutes, I answered about 40 of the 60 questions had was 100% sure I had them correct. I then took a bit longer to do the next 16 questions (some of which I marked so I could go back and double-check them). Then there were about 4 that took me 30 minutes or so. All told, I was there for about 50 minutes.

Final score: 97% (missed 2 out of 60)

I tied my score from ~7 years ago when I took it in college.
