RE: Feedback on new UI
What i did:
1.) Reduced the font size of the main nav elements.
2.) Reduced the height of the main nav container.
3.) Did a glassy background.
4.) Made the "current" nav selection non-bold, underlined, and italic so that a user could get the appropriate visual queue without having to change the fonts color.
5.) Reduced the height of the container holding the "recent industry blog posts" and "recent discussions" text.
6.) Remade the "Start Test" button to be more glassy like and reduced its size so that it is still prominent but not drawing too much attention to itself.
7.) Used a slightly desaturated version of the current background color so that it is not drawing as much attention to itself (currently its a little distracting imo). For some reason the background in my mockup appears to have lines in it, if you see that just ignore it, the background is only a flat color (might be photoshops save for web introducing it).

If you can i'd also recommend moving, or reducing the size of, the 'provided by AOL' graphic. From a usability standpoint it's drawing too much attention away from the navigation elements themselves.
