Boson Practice Exams Software from 1990s!

Can't believe this. So I purchased one of their exams and then I got a link to download an .exe file that I can only run from a Windows machine!!!

No online access, accessing it through mobile app is science fiction.

So not only that they're not mobile-ready, you can't even do it online. That's how things were done prior to Internet in early 1990s!

    Were you even alive in the 1990s? If it was in the 1990s you probably would have had to purchase it over the phone(most likely using a landline) and then you would’ve been shipped some floppies to install the program from.

    I didn't realize download links were available prior to the Internet.

    Are you defending Boson? Funny how you're in IT which is supposed to be about change, but yet defend a company that still lives in 1990s!!!

    I've just recently used Boson exam simulator for the last 2 weeks on my laptop and passed my exam yesterday. I personally didn't have an issue with the software not being online and had supplementary apps to cover my knowledge base on my phone. No complaints here. Disclaimer: I'm not a Boson employee.

    Their exams simply will not work on mobile or via web browser that is why.

    Its a standard engine with extras for sims. Good luck getting those sims working in flash or html5

    Also have you sat a cisco test lately? Those are 1990s software

    Boson gives you an authentic experience like your taking a Cisco exam at the testing center. Some people want that in a practice test.

    When I go to the testing center, the exam isn't going to be on my phone or a webpage. It's going to be on a 2007 desktop, possibly a ball mouse (can't remember if they upgraded), and of course Cisco's really old testing software.

    For the record, the internet has been around well before the 1990s.

    Once you use the Boson exam simulator, you'll understand why. I mean sure they can give you a link, but it is a good software.
