    2 years worth of bludge was not worth it for the epic fail experienced in that room today

    Re: How Was The Exam 2008!?!?!

    Such a breeze after business =)
    Seriously, got the first bit done in like 45 mins, did the last section (the 2 report-type thingies) for the rest of the time. Finished all up with about 4 minutes to go or so.

    The only one that weirded me out a bit was question 14 (OH&S Committee one). Also question 6 was a bit weird (I don't think any of the answers were correct, but picked C)

    Re: How Was The Exam 2008!?!?!

    Nah question 6 was:
    Which of the following uses ONLY verbal communication?
    (A) Body language, memo, email
    (B) Memo, paging system, team meeting
    (C) Team meeting, answering machine, telephone
    (D) Body language, telephone, answering machine

    I put (A) Faulty sections on the disk for the scandisk one. Though I just had a look at Windows XP, 98se and NT4.0 and none of them have that, bleh.

    Which extended response did you guys pick?

    I did 20 and 22. 12 and 8 pages written respectively.

    As for multiple choice:

    Question 6: verbal communication = (c)
    Question 10: cleaning products are flammable so (c)
    Question 13: Scandisk utility I put (d) the location of blocks
    Question 14: OHS committee I put it as a standard (b)

    Probably the easiest question there tbh. Hint: Body language isn't verbal.
    Women troubles Amy?
    I just don't understand what would compel a person to be such a bitch to a total stranger!
    Maybe she was abused when she was a child.
    Oh God, I fucking hope so.

    Re: It Exam Over!!!

    All I can say is WOW...I thought I was prepared, but no...

    Honestly if I had studied 10 hours more it wouldn't have made a difference!
    That's just how 'off-topic' some of it felt to what I've been reading and taught in class. You'd think that IT - with less than 1% of people managing a Band 6 -that it would be scaled fairly well, but no...I'd be lucky to scrape a Band 5...I don't think I've even heard my teacher mention "macros" once and there's a 3 mark question on it?!?!

    Oh well, It's just a number

    Good Luck to everyone else! (I'll need all the luck I can get now :P)
