What a long strange trip it's been....

hi. i'm still a couple months away from taking step 1, but i am curious how the text on the monitor is formatted. really i am curious because it is really tiring to read text that is in multiple fields of vision and spans the entire length of the screen instead of in one field of vision such as a column. i think i know the answer already, but am going to throw it out there anyway. cheers.

The will give you a few dry erase boards with markers for usage during the test.
