MOS 2010 certification - Basic question

    Question

  • I am studying for my MOS certification.  During the test, does it give you a 2nd chance if you make a mistake on a question?  Also, if you finish the test early, does it give you a chance to go back to any questions you may have skipped?

  • This is NOT correct for MOS exams - once you go past a question you cannot return to it, and there is no "Mark as review" like the MCP exams to do them again at the end as far as I recall either (having taken 4 x 2003, 5 x 2007 and one 2010 exam). You do the things asked for in the question in a 'real' application and commit your finished product at the end of each one, this is not a multiple choice type exam at all.

  • Got it.

    So it is better to skip it rather than taking a random guess.  As long as you have time left over you can always go back.

  • I tend to answer all the questions and mark the ones I'm not sure of as "Review".  This way if I run out of time, I'm still in with a chance of getting those questions right. 

    You don't lose marks for answering a question wrong, it just means a wrong answer doesn't get added to your final score.  have a read of the following for some more information on exam scoring http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-AU/CertGeneral/thread/47aedf10-ea1b-4628-a116-263760e4db50

  • or else its gone

    Even if a question is not marked for review, you are still prompted to review your answers before ending the exam.
