You posed in the wrong forum, but no worries.
You can find an exam location here:

You can also locate information about clubs nearby by going to ARRL's webpage: www.arrl.org. Click on "clubs"

Put in your zip code and choose the distance around you to search. The website will give you info about all the clubs in that area, including links to their webpages.

The Dayton Hamvention is again giving free testing this upcoming May during the Hamvention, Friday and Saturday only. Google them for more info.

Going to the Hamvention is sort of a right of passage thing, especially for somebody so close.

Found with a 3 second google search

I took my exam at the K8QIK clubhouse. It's across from the OU Lancaster campus, next to the old health department building. The guys there do it by appointment with a $15 fee. It's nice that you can study at your own pace and call them to test when you're ready.
