1.(clear) if the number of correct answers to a question are more than one, it will be exactly stated from the question.

2.(clear) if the number of correct answers to a question is only one, it won't be stated from the question.

3.(clear) A question is scored only if all correct answers are chosen.

4.(clear) The examinee can get pencil and paper from the test site.

5.(unclear) Can the examinee choose the questions to answer in its own sequence back and forth? e.g. there're questions from 1 to 10, can I choose the friendly questions 2,4,6,8,10 to answer firstly, then resort to the aweful rest ones?

6.(unclear) Can the examinee modify the answers for unlimited times before the clock stopps?

...

Welcome everybody to contribute to the list - you may answer the unclear items or add already clear items important for taking the exam on the day.

Thanks!

You can mark the questions which you have not answered or the questions which you have doughts and come back to them later.
There is an Item review at the end of the last question which displays you the questions you have marked so you can review them and make any modifications.
The questions of type arrange code blocks will have to be answered again if you try to modify them, but I got an alert that the answer will be lost before doing so.

Hope the point is clear.

WARNING: The dreaded paper and pencil issue

I would call the prometric center ahead of time on this one. Sometimes all you get is a horrible, small whiteboard with a huge marker - it's too clunky, it doesn't erase right, and there's no where near enough space to write on.

If i could pick between two test centers and only one gave me pencil and paper - i'd choose that one even if i had to drive a LOT farther is to get to it.

the stupid white boards and markers are HORRIBLE.

heh... i didn't get a whiteboard. i got one of those "magic erase" toys you get for your kids... the kind with the two sheets of plastic on top of a black waxy substance, and the plastic "pen" that kind of digs into the wax.

you then lift both sheets of plastic to erase what you had...

it REALLY sucked.

It's said what you've filled in a D&D question will disappear when you review it, so write down them if the review is really needed.

Yes, all the questions can be reviewed any time.
