How does the exam software score the A+ exam?

    Hi to all,

    I have passed A+ hardware last December 19 and A+ 0S last January 15.
    I am disappointed with my OS score: 608. I might have missed 13 out
    of the 80 questions at the most (I counted the questions that I am not
    sure of), so that would mean I have gotten 84% of the exam correct.
    So how come the discrepancy? Does anyone know how they actually
    compute the score?

    are you saying that you did not answer 13 questions? - or do you think that
    you had only 13 questions wrong? - I haven't taken my exams yet, and would
    love to hear from others who have passed, their scores and how they think
    they did - it would be helpful

    I have read that the exam is adaptive; the questions change based on
    how you answer the questions previous. Each is weighted differently
    and some, I hear, are practice questions and are not scored at all.
    When I took the software exam, it told me at the start I needed 505
    points to pass. I got a 498. The printout they give you afterward only
    shows the "areas" in which you struggled so you can study up.

    and how did you feel you did - did you struggle? -Did you struggle before
    hand with the practice tests that you may have done?

    Once I got into it, I thought it was easy. Easier than I expected.
    Going in, I was sure I would not pass, but by the time I finished, I
    thought, "I might actually have a chance here". When I saw the 498, I
    was bummed that I missed it by so little, but I knew I could pass on
    the next try (I will take it again after I get the Netware 5.1 exam
    out of the way). I used the practice tests to study up and they work
    well for that.
