A Tearful Goodbye.

Saying Goodbye to The Personal Exam Self-Tester.

December 9, 2004.

That's right, folks.

Sadly, the time has come for The Personal Exam Self-Tester to ride off into the sunset . . . but fear not, oh faithful fans, for the circle of life continues here at Vellosoft!!! As we say good by to the The Personal Exam Self-Tester, we say hello to the The Professional Exam System.

(Okay, for all of you who've been with the PEST for a long time and really thought The PEST was calling it quits, forgive me. I just couldn't resist the dramatic sound of that headline!)

Why the name change? While it remains true that many people continue to use the software as the most effective tool around for maximizing their own personal study time, the new name reflects the program's ever expanding roll as a tool for classroom test administration. So the name may have changed from Personal Exam Self-Tester to Professional Exam System, but it's still best known to its friends as . . . The PEST!!! (pretty clever twist on the acronym, eh?)

If you have yet to experience The PEST for yourself, give it a test spin and see just how easy quiz creation can by downloading the free 21-day trial.

As always, the update is free to registered users. If you're already running v2.97, the update to v2.98 only reflects the name change and is not critical. Stay tuned, however, because version 2.99 with support for Sound Responses is finishing up it's rounds through the beta testing circuit.
