Don’t Forget: Your Computer Needs to Prepare for Finals Too

By Jessica de Perio Wittman

It’s that time of year again: exam time. Did you miss the Exam4 download period (November 10 – 14)?  If you did, don’t worry ¾ it is not too late to download Exam4!

Simply go to and fill in the appropriate information to download and install the program.

For Mac users, Apple recently released its upgrade to Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Exam4 is compatible with that operating system, so just make sure to check that option when you register your software.

After the program is installed, we strongly suggest that you take a practice exam. This process validates the software and ensures that there are no problems that could cause you a headache on exam day. Don’t worry though, this whole process should not take more than five minutes. For step-by-step directions, please visit:

If you have any concerns about the technical requirements of Exam4, they can be viewed at Exam4’s website at:

If you have successfully completed all of these steps you have done all you need to do to prepare your computer for finals.

Remember that you can always stop by the IT Help Desk for technical support before and during the exam period! The Help Desk is located on the second floor of the library. Students in need of accommodations should contact Jane Thierfield Brown at about laptop reservations.

Lastly, remember, you can find your exam schedule at any time by visiting: Good luck with finals!
