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.

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.
