    Has anyone who has taken any of the NBME exams had issues running the exam in the last day or two? Using a MAC, and trying firefox, safari, IE 5.2.3 for MAC, the software barely runs and takes over 60 seconds to load each questions...I continually have to log out and re-login to get the exam to go. I have been on it for over an hour and am only up to question 14 of block 1 (CSSA #3)---FRUSTRATED? Already e-mailed NBME but haven't heard back...

    Anyone else with these issues?

    When I did the NBME exams for step 1 (self assessments) I was unable to use my mac. I had to go to the library to take them. I just assumed the program isn't compatible. Did you ever get it to work properly?

    It does work with Macs...just sub-optimally...it finally worked after the server in Philly (I assume that's where it is) was fixed...a 3.5 hr test became 7 hrs---fun:)
