    Where did you hear that?

    Microsoft do not tell you in advance how many questions there are in any given exam.
    Also, each exam has many 'forms' and this format will be only one of several that you could come across.

    To be honest, it doesn't matter if the amount of questions have increased/decreased, or if there's drag & drop or if it's multiple choice. The objectives is what you have to worry about as that is what you'll be tested on.

    Having sat a MS exam recently, I can confirm that they've upped the number to 77.

    This was from my 682 exam confirmation:
    Time allowed for the actual exam was 2:10.

    If they've upped the number of questions, upped the time allowed and kept the difficulty level the same, I'd call that good news.
    The more questions there are, the less chance there is of them hitting several weak spots in one exam.

    I may not think that next Friday when I'm on question 70 out of 85 with 20 minutes left on the clock. 70-685 time :ohmy
