I got a 76 % on the 2nd marcus exam.
How close is this to the new exam.
I know he was very close with the old exam
but has he done a good job this time.
Can someone who has taken the exam tell me.
Cause I thought the long coded questions were kind of
easy. I only missed on the tiny multiple choice question.
That's because I havn't sorted all my notes and
realy done a good job at memorizing yet.
But with a score of 76 what are the chance of my passing the real thing.
Secondly I finished it with 5 minuits to spare but
I think taking an exam on a printed out piece of paper
might be easier than looking at the screen since you have
to scroll up and down to see the questions and your eyes
get bother staring at the screen so intensly for so long.
Thanks for your any input you can give me.

Hi Kourosh,
I just took the same exam, and got a 73%. That mock exam was the closest one to the real exam, that I have done to date. There were more lengthy code style question in the real exam when I did it, and you are right, it is really quite hard on the eyes. I think that the real exam is a little harder than Marcus' exam, but with 76%, you are probably looking at passing, but just!!
I'd say polish on the areas that you got wrong, and go for the real exam. Good luck!!
