I sat the exam yesterday and was another person unfortunate enough to encounter the "Out Of System Resources" Error. I wish I had read the earlier post about confirming with the test centre that the box had 128MB of RAM and ran Windows 2000 before I sat the test.
I used the comments box to type in the answers to the remaining drag and drop questions although this slowed me down considerably. I was doing fine for time up until this point. In the end I was only able to check about a third of my answers.
A word of warning for those of you that are unfortunate enough to enter this problem:
CHECK YOUR DRAG AND DROP ANSWERS AS YOU GO ALONG. I TRIED TO REVIEW ONE OF THEM (WHICH WIPES OUT YOUR ANSWER) AFTER I ENCOUNTERED THE ERROR AND HAD TO REDO THE QUESTION BY PUTTING MY ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS BOX). I DIDN'T DARE TO REVIEW ANY OTHER DRAG AND DROP QUESTIONS AND JUST HOPE THAT MY ORIGINAL ANSWERS BEFORE THE RESOURCE FAILURE ARE INTACT.
I would just like to ask Evelyn (or anyone else involved with adminstering/marking the beta) if these problems will be taken into account while marking? Is marking automated or will a human being actually take answers in the comments boxes into account

For reference I took the exam in the UK at centre GB5T
Good luck to those yet to do the test.
