Download BlueBook

The exam is administered on a digital tool called BlueBook. Please make sure to download and install BlueBook on your laptop before the exam.

  • Mac download: Mac
  • PC download: PC
  • Linux download: Linux

Note: If you're using a Mac and you get an error saying that the Disk Image is from an unidentified developer, don't panic! Simply open up the Mac-BlueBook-1.0.0.dmg file in your finder, and right click it and select 'open'. The same window will pop up, but this time you'll have a chance to open it anyway. On Windows, If you get a message that says, "Windows protected your PC," you can click on "More info" and then "Run anyway".

A practice exam that can be run on BlueBook can be downloaded below. This exam will be run under timed conditions, and give you an idea of what to expect for the actual exam.

Should you run into any technical issues, shoot Brahm an email at .

The exam is on your computer. You should bring:

  • Your laptop and charger
  • The device you use for two-step authentication
  • Paper notes (it's open book)
  • A power strip/extension cord (optional, but recommended if you have access to one)

If you don't have a working laptop let us know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE and we will get you set up with one.

Note: We unfortunately currently don't have a way for students to access their own submissions from the electronic practice exam. If you'd like to compare your answers to the posted solutions, please make sure to copy, save, or otherwise keep your answers before submitting. Apologies for some of the growing pains as we develop all of the functionality of our new electronic exam system!
