You can get the details of the exercises and rules for the entire test off the AKC website. Best thing would be to read them there so you're familiar with it, and then maybe do a practice run on things like the friendly greeting with another dog, etc... if you can. None of the CGC exercises are difficult and none should be a problem with a dog who's decently trained and has an overall sound temperament. But doesn't hurt to do a run through ahead of time for peace of mind.
I've never considered using a harness, and am not sure they are allowed (I'm sure it says in the rules), and would just use a flat collar.
A dog does not need to be AKC registered, or a purebred, to test for the CGC.
