I have a friend who just cleared his SJPC last week.
He told me that there are some Multiple Choice questions
(Check Box type) wherein none of the answer is a right answer,
and also there is no check box specifing that none of the
above is true.
Does this mean that the correct response to such a question
would be to leave the question unanswered.

Wait a minute!! Careful with that type of advice! Last time I looked, all questions have at least one answer. If you don't get "none of the above", then it is (at least) "one of the above".



This is what Brogden and Roberts/Heller say in their books and the way I saw it last Monday when I took the exam. Of course there are more than 59 questions in the database but it is known that you should answer all questions and leave none blank.

You are right Tony.
But I think you may get that kind of questions as well.
eg. a friend of mine took the exam few weeks back.
He did'nt get a single true/false type question, where the test engines he used to prepare were full of them.
thanks

Tony, I saw 2 questions wihout answer in R & H book. They are in :
Chapter 8 - Ist question
Chapter 13 - IInd question
Can you please take a look at those questions? Is there any way to raise this doubt to the person who is responsible for the certification database?
