    Closest thing I've seen to an authoritative answer about partial marks on
    exam questions just came up in another group. Bears repeating here:

  7. I am about to do exam 070-293. wondering if anyone taken the exam can tell
    me more.

    How many questions were there?
    How many simulation questions were there?
    What you did in the simulation such as dns?
    If I only got partially right in the simulation question do I get some marks
    for this?

    Thanks

    Regardless of how you answer the questions, you will get all your
    answers incorrect. Because you are the "man".

    I read that as "Looks like you are sticking it in to the 'man'. "

    If he's not Stan, then he can't be the man.

    Or something...

    If he's the man, does that mean he's not Stan?
    If he can, will he act like Stan?
    Is the man more like Dan?
    How does man run his lan?
    How about Stan's san?
    Or Dan's wan?
    Does Stan live in a van?
    Does man eat out of a can?
    Did they ban Stan?
    Did they plan Dan?
    Does man have a plan?
    Is man a fan of Stan?
    Is Stan's sister Jan?
    Are Stan, Dan, man, or Jan member of the Klan?
    Will man span the pan?
    Man Jan can plan!

    You forgot about Ann, who logs on to the WAN I once ran, and is my biggest
    fan.
