When taking the actual exam, are you told how many answers are correct? Some of the mock exams I've seen ask you before you start if you want an indication of how many answers are right. I just want to make sure I'm taking mocks as close to the real thing as possible.

Yes, you'll be told how many correct answers to check.

Also, as i remember it, while the exam won't let you check MORE than the number allowed, it will not tell you if you check FEWER than the number...
not a big deal, but something to be aware of...
