student faculty

The University of San Diego's Law program uses a testing application by Examsoft called SofTest.  This application is highly recommended for law students, as it allows students to type tests on their computer instead of handwriting answers.  This application is also used for the California BAR exam.

SofTest is supported on Windows PCs (with XP, Vista, or 7) or on Apple computers (with OS X 10.5.8 or newer). 

USD recommends you download and try out SofTest with a practice exam well before your first midterm or final.  Law students can download the application at

If you experience any problems with SofTest, USD has some resources to assist.
