  • Question

  • Do Microsoft Exam implement an Identification type of exam like the Flash Card types on Practice tests? Where you will answer the questions with no choices at all?

    Because I doubt that I would exactly remember all the words and commands.

    I really needed an answer to this. Cause I don't want to waste my time and energy studying for an exam that I don't have a chance at all.

    I do have a problem at memorizing the exact words, but if for example there are choices given Its kinda easy for me to remember the answer.

  • Hi,

    Mr. Wharty gave you the information you need to know about the format of Microsoft certifications.

    Because you need some real practise before taking an exam it becomes easier to answer the questions in the exam with more experience (normally you have worked with the appropriate technology for years before you take an exam). Like said, Microsoft does not provide information on the format of the exam. That means that there's no problem with remembering the exact words/correct answer (because you don't know the exact questions of the exam, only the areas where questions can come from).
