    Hi guys take my 291 exam next week. does anyone who took the exam know if the Microsoft calculator is available in the exam. I am sure it was on the Server exam. I hope so for any subnetting questions that turn up

    Cheers

    As far as i am aware you cannot take a calculator in for any of the MCSE exams.

    Hi thanks

    Yeah I know you cant take anything in to the exam room but i think when I took my server exam the calculator was available on screen just like in windows.

    Thanks

    I was hoping I was right just couldnt remember. If you switch the calc to scientific view you can convert decimal to binary and so on.

    I was checking out some of the posts pointing to learntosubnet.com

    It is a very helpfull site, just got to remember RFC 1812 whilst calculating number of subnets. On most of the Microsoft exams they tell you that the router is RFC 1812 compliant.

    Thanks again

    Hm - the reference to RFC 1812 looks to be very useful. Thanks for the pointer.

    good luck. the trainer told us only 21% of candidates pass this exam first time ..not sure where he got that figure from though :scratch

    also told us to study for 8-12 weeks. that was a fortnight ago :lol:

    Hi

    Well I sit this exam tomorrow bit concerned about not being able to use the Scientific calc as my trainer told us that was an option. I had better have a look at some manual conversions over the next few hours.
