Number of questions - 60 OR 72

Hi,

The practice exams that I have seen (K&B master exams, Certpal, Examlab) all have 72 questions to be solved in 3 and a half hours. But the sun site mentions 60 questions to be solved in 3 hrs.

I'd like to ask the people who might have appeared for the exam recently, how many questions did they have?

Thanks,
Nidhi

You'll get 60 questions. But still its better to confirm with your prometric center. The number of questions were reduced a few months ago, information about it can be found here...

The number of questions is 60. However it is better to practice with more questions and tougher ones per exam to get ready for the real thing.
