The actual exam difficulty is moderate.

They will ask you about daemon threads but the answer will be compilation error because of missing semi colon. (This is just an example and not actual test question)

Hi Deepak, I found the master exam a good deal harder than the real exam. In scores: Master/free bonus exam: 76%/78% vs. 98% in real exam. If you are searching a little in the forum you'll find more figures to get a feeling.
