6.1. Preparing for Exam 70-291
Exam 70-291 is a computer-generated exam. The exam is timed, and the amount of time remaining on the exam is displayed by an onscreen timer clock. Most questions on the exam are multiple choice. Multiple choice questions are either:
Typically, the test environment will have Previous/Next and Mark For Review options. You can navigate through the test using the Previous/Next
Other formats for questions are used as well, including:
With the exception of multiple-choice, single-answer questions, all of the other questions can have multiple answers or multiple required procedures to obtain full credit. If all of the expected answers or procedures are not performed, you will only get partial credit for the answer.
Although many of the questions on Exam 70-291 are multiple choice, hot area, select and place, active screen, and simulation questions are being used increasingly to ensure that the testing process more accurately reflects actual hands-on knowledge rather than rote memorization. Individuals with adequate hands-on administration experience who have reviewed the study guide, performed the practice exercises, memorized the essentials, and taken practice tests should do well on this type of exam. Individuals who lack adequate hands-on experience and have not prepared appropriately will do poorly on this type of exam.
