Can i adjust the screen area before I take my test?
The GMATPrep software recommends a screen resolution that I am not fond of.
The font is too large.

No. You just sit there and take the test.
The screen resolution I think is 1024*768. It is best for most people.
While you don't like the bigger font - assume you use some higher resolution on your own PC - there are others who don't wanna stress their eyes with small fonts.

1) The fonts are not small
2) "It is best for most people."

It's nothing to do with the screen resolution, it is the software setup. And no, you can't change it.

ya cookie they let you change the resolution, I think they also let you go into bios and let your overclock the computer allowing the answer processing time to be reduced by 1000000000%

My test center let me bring in my own chair which was great because my back tends to get stiff if I'm in a standard issue chair.

As far as I remember, yes. But the monitor sizes are not exactly the same across centers, so the effective size of the text could be different.

I was giving veritas gmat tests, the sentece correction options were not fitting in one screen and I had to scroll for the options, making it more difficult to compare the options for elimination. Does the real GMAT SC options fit in to one screen or i have to scroll for them. It is affecting my speed and accuracy.

I've never seen anything like this on the actual GMAT, even with really long, fully underlined SC questions.

Because the test you're attempting is delivered on your browser, you could try zooming out (typically CTRL + mouse wheel down). That should reduce the size of the text as well, and more of it will fit on your screen.

All questions on the GMAT fit to the screen, so you will not have to scroll to read a full question.

If you have any further questions, please reach out.

You will be able to customize all the questions you want on your GMAT, also you can also play with the scoring algorithm....even create one for yourself.
You will also be able to control the timings of the test as well as the weather of your city.

Instead you will be seated at the proctor's seat and you will be given the task to play fortnite,your application would be sent to the top b schools as soon as you enter the test center. Snacks, drinks will be complimentary.

Good luck
