You should be connected to a reliable DSL or Cable Modem Internet service.
FireFox or Safari are the recommended browsers to use, although Internet Explorer or any other browser is sufficient.
Java Script must be enabled on your browser. This scripting disables certain mouse functions during the exam so that you may only move forward question by question.
