Testing Wireless Uploading: Running a Mock Exam

We recommend that all students run a "mock" exam to test the wireless cards in their computers. If you experience any problems, please take care of these well before your first exam.

1.) Open SofTest.

2.) Choose "Download Exam Files".

3.) Enter your Examsoft ID and password.

4.) Download the exam file.

5.) Open the exam file in SofTest.

6.) Exit the exam and follow all instructions to upload the answer file back to the server.

7.) You should receive confirmation that your file was uploaded. If you experienced any problems running this mock exam, you should contact ExamSoft’s technical support (866.429.8889) to resolve those before your first exam. If you can’t resolve any wireless problems prior to your exams, you should plan on writing your exam in Bluebooks.
