Reposting from my earlier pre-test thread.

I took the test Monday and passed with 83%. Not quite as good as some of the other scores posted Monday but I'm pleased nonetheless considering my practice exam scores. The K&B book, LearnKey MasterExam, and ExamLab were excellent learning resources for this exam.

As expected, there were no serialization questions.

Drag-and-drop questions still lose your answers if you want to edit them. Pretty lame but at least it warns you and gives you a chance to back out.

They were sticklers with testing policy at the site I went to. I asked if I could use pencil and paper and they said no. They had me leave everything including my watch and then they had me pull out my pockets, pull up my sleeves, pant legs and socks to make sure I wasn't hiding anything. At that point I was expecting them to have me put my hands on the wall for a pat-down. Occasionally they had someone walking up and down the testing room looking over everyone's shoulders. I have taken at least a dozen IT certification exams in the past and I've never seen this level of scrutiny.
