Am I permitted to use my calculator in the exam? Then I can handle all those Octel, hexa and binary questions easily else I have to relearn my arithemetic which I last did in school in Computing 101.. sigh..

Nope - I suggest you know how to go from decimal to binary to octal to hex and any other combinations of those bases. It's really not that hard - if you do a search in this forum, you'll find tons of threads all about this.

Lionel,
you are kidding right?
Juggling with binary, hexadecimal, octal and decimal representations of numbers is a MUST for any respectable programmers.
