I was taking K and B master test. The expression
if (y-- >7)....
The two minus signs were merged in a way that it looked like one single minus sign.
Will real exam have such a problem?
Thanks
Barkat

I'd thought about it before and decided to use the mouse, slowly drag it and highlight it. This way you notice when there's actually 2 "-" instead of a single one.
If you learned the lesson here's one quick test:

one or two?

Now, if the exam does allow you to highlight the questions, I'm screwed!

In the real exam I did not have any problem reading the code. I could say it was very clear. But you just have to be very carefull. Semicolons can miss (and it is on purpose), or scope of variables, or "{}" bracket instead of "()" bracket etc.
Good luck,
Miki
