Switching GMAT Prep from PC to Mac? [#permalink]

I have a student who took a practice test on the GMAT Prep software on a PC, and now wants to take the second test on a Mac. Am I correct in telling him that if he does so he'll likely have repeat questions from his first administration of the test? Or does the online access of the new software prevent this, even though he's taking the test from a second install?

Also, he said that after he took the first test, he saw his score and closed out the application, but now when he reopens it (on the same computer), he's able to see his score but isn't able to review the individual questions. Is this correct, or is he missing something?

I'm not super familiar with the software and don't know if there's a user name and password associated with it.

Yes, most likely they would see 1-2 repeats. GMAT Prep has close to 900 questions hidden inside (total between verbal and quant), so the chances of repeats are not huge but it is likely to happen. Ideally he/she would not do it this way or take the test on the same PC.

Yes, he is no longer able to review his questions (not sure why but that's how it is done)
