Long story short, I'm not downloading it on my computer and I want to download it on my parents Mac. I would be telling them how to do if over the phone/they would be downloading it themselves.
They are computer illiterate.
Will it be easy enough for them to download without screwing up somehow?
See my steps above. As someone who has done a lot of phone computer consults with parents, doing this by proxy is going to be a pain in the butt, but doable... just set aside some time.
You do the first part (registering on the website and paying). Then they send you an email link to the download file. You'll need to forward that link to your parents and then talk them through:
(1) Download from website ******** NOTE: THIS REQUIRES THAT THEY LOGIN USING YOUR CREDENTIALS. SHARING YOUR USERNAME OR PASSWORD WITH ANYONE FOR ANY REASON MAY BE SOME SORT OF VIOLATION -- YOU SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS -- I HAVE NOT LOOKED INTO IT ********
(2) Install (pretty straightforward on Mac)
(3) Entering your username password to register the software (same warning as above)
(4) Take practice exam (again requires username password. Same warning applies -- also be sure to warn them that it will close all their programs when they do this)
(5) Submit practice exam.
(6) Quit SofTest
It may be easier (and will alleviate any username/password concerns) to sign up for a free GoToMyPC.com 30-day trial and talk them through installing the host software on their computer. Then you can login to their computer, take control of it, and do the installation/registration/practice exam stuff yourself. Don't forget to cancel before the 30 days though.
