Google exam software has intuitive interface and it’s easy to use. However you can’t have multiple windows opened on the same computer because it locks down everything while running. It allows you to skip questions, mark them for later; it also shows you which questions you marked so you can access them any time. To visually eliminate incorrect choices it allows you to strike-through an answer.
