Preparing for PearsonVue at home, online testing

2020-08-12 15:35:00

This Reddit thread offers a plethora of information on the at-home, online test taking offered by PearsonVue.

Big lesson I learned as MacOS user: disable Little Snitch and other filtering / security software while you're taking the test. It feels dirty, but to ensure the software does not encounter any hickups (which may result in you botching the test) you're going to have to. Better yet, don't disable, but quit the software because any popups on your screen will also alert the proctor.

Just to be safe, I made a dummy user account on my Macbook, so I can remove all trace of the software afterwards. Luckily it runs from your downloads folder and doesn't need any admin-level access. tags: , ,
