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). Apple OS X Mountain Lion and Windows 8 are NOT compatible with Examsoft and will not be until Spring 2013.
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 http://www.examsoft.com/usdlaw
If you experience any problems with SofTest, USD has some resources to assist.
