i haven't found this listed elsewhere, and am wondering what you are allowed to bring in to the exam with you. Just you and your brain? Or can you bring/or be provided with scratch paper? Some of the questions on the mock exams are easier for me to work out if I can write a few things down - particularly the ones involving math operators. Speaking of math operators, how difficult are the operator questions on the real exam? In one mock exam, questions over things like "result of -1 >> 400" seem difficult at first, but turn out to be simple if you know that -1 >> anything is -1. Is the real exam any more difficult than that? If so, I hope calculators are allowed...
use the [CODE] tags - it makes it much easier for people to help you.
When I took it, I didn't need anything. They provided everything I needed, but I would advise bringing some scratch paper and a pen, just in case. You can't bring a calculator, but you don't need one anyway. There weren't any difficult bit operator questions on my version of the exam.
I was also given a board and pen that I could write notes on. Nothing else. No phone, no wallet. Really just me and my brain. I didn't try to take in a bottle of water, but they did show me where the bathroom and drinking fountain were so if I needed, I could use either.
I was also given some scratch paper, a pencil, a glass of water. They did not show me where the bathroom is.
