    You should know the basics of Hex, I dont remember if you get tested on it or not, but it plays roles in networking so its a good idea to know it for your self too.

    I do know the basics of Hex but I did know alot more, the thing is being in a job which numbs the mind and not being properly involved with PCs for 10 years hasnt helped.

    And I cant get out of this job untill my debt are paid off (I live in an area where the main occupations are manufacturing and farming) thats why I have decided to restart studying and hopefully by the time next April comes I can get an IT job elswhere and have the funding to move out the area I am in.

    I understand and respect your decision. I know its not easy to learn stuff when you dont get much opportunity to play around and experiment. All I can say is study as much as you can and if you feel like you are weak on Hex then study Hex, because at least you are trying and then you have no excuses and most likely you will succeed if you keep at it.

    I never had anything about hex, all the questions were binary. This was for the 2003 objectives tho, so it may have changed now.

    I don' think you'll be tested on Hex specificaly, as in tested on how to work out a Hex value but you might be tested on things that are valued in Hex so you should be able to tell the difference between Hex and other values.

    The only HEX questions I ever had where on CCNA and on CEH.
    If you know the basics (that it is based on 16, with numbers 0-9 and a-f, and can figure out that c = 12 and so) you should be fine.
