# 70-320 test results

Just wrote 70-320 using only Kalani's book as study material, with the
occasional trip to MSDN.

Passed with a score of 1006.

Each of the 4 bars was 6-1/16" long.
I received a 5-10/16" bars for the first section, and 5-7/16" bars for
the other three sections.
A 5-10/16" bar is 90 sixteenths of an inch long.
A 5-7/16" bar is 87 sixteenths of an inch long.
A full bar would be 97 sixteenths of an inch long.

Thus,
(90 + 87 + 87 + 87) / (97 * 4) = 1006 / x (the maximum)
0.9046x = 1006
x = 1112

So, the exam is out of 1112?

I think it's true that the exam is adaptive, and the software gives you
tougher questions as you get them right and easier questions as you get
them wrong. Thus, there is no true total maximum.

Congrats! Did they give you a shiny new ruler to figure this all out too?

Thanks. Nope, I had to scrounge for my own ruler when I got back to the
office.

Guess your calculations blow my theory of a 1000 point basis for the exams.

Forget my calculations. My score of 1006 blew your theory.
