Hey,

I am a bit confused about the no. of questions that will feature in exam and what exactly is the passing percentage.

K & B book says the exam has 72 questions whereas Sun Site says its 60.

Also what exactly is the passing percentage.


Please assist


Thanks

It has been changed recently, and you can regard Sun's website as an authoritative source.

If Sun's website is not authoritative enough for you, then you could contact Sun Training and ask them about it. (If you do, please let us know what they said).
