Yes, the real exam tells you how many answers are correct for each questions. You are allowed to use "writing materials" that are provided by the testing center. They are rarely pen/paper. It's more usually a marker and reusable board.

The testing center is required to provide "writing materials". Back in the days it was a pen and some sheets of paper, nowadays it's a marker, some erasable paper sheets/whiteboard and a wiper.

Yes! Each question clearly specifies the number of options you have to select. If only one answer is required, radio buttons will be used (and thus you can only select one answer). And there are no points for partially correct answers, so you have to select all correct options in order to get one point for that question. And there is no negative marking if you get a question wrong, so you can guess for free

When only one option has to be selected, you have radio buttons. When multiple options have to be selected, you have checkboxes. Both have the standard behavior you can expect. So if you have radio buttons, the previously selected option will be unselected when you select another option. With checkboxes, you have to manually unselect a checkbox if you have selected a wrong option. You even get a warning/error message if you try to select more options than you have to for that question.
When you click on the "Next" button after answering the last question, you do not finish the exam! You get a review page: this page contains some explanatory text and then you have a table which contains all incomplete questions and all marked (for review) questions (ordered by question number). At the bottom you have at the left 3 buttons:
review all questions
review incomplete questions
review marked questions
When you review a marked question, the exam software does not clear the mark (checkbox). You have to do it yourself. If you don't do that, this question will remain in the overview.
At the right, you have the "Finish" button to finish the exam. If you hit this button, you get an alert with a message similar to this one: "are you sure you want to finish the exam? Remember this action is permanent and you can't go back to the questions". And you have 2 buttons: one to cancel and one to really finish the exam.
Thanks Roel, this was just the information I was looking for. I saw the "Bookmark" button on the practice exams. I expected the kind of behavior Roel describes here from the practice exam bookmark feature, but I didn't see a way to go back and review the bookmarked answers before I was given a score. Did I miss something?
Thanks for all y'all do.

Can you specify which practice exams you are referring to?
