    I know it seems like a weird question, but what do you recommend wearing to an exam (doing A+). Are they strictly formal affairs or can I go in Jeans + T-Shirt? :P

    The last exam I sat was in School so obviously had uniform there!

    I wasn't aloud to wear a hat, but anything else goes.

    I tend to wear spandex.
    Lets your body breathe and doesn't restrict mouse action.

    Essential for the true professional.

    I agree but chaffing can sometimes be an issue. To overcome this I recommend using talcum powder.

    If you wear jeans and a T-Shirt you wont get in.

    There is a guy on the door and will probably say "Not tonight mate" or something like that.

    In all seriousness all through college and for these cert exams I like to wear a jacket and tie, just because I've always believed you should dress for success. I know it sounds very cliche, but when I look good I feel good, and having a good attitude can go a long way when taking an exam.

    As long as you're not naked (unless your testing center is into that sort of thing)!

    I tested today in a t-shirt and jeans.

    LOL! That made me remember this chap I used to hang out with many years ago. He suddenly put on loads of weight and of course one of the side effects was severe chaffing of the arse cheeks when he walked. In his daily job - warehouse operative in a rather sweltering warehouse during the summer season - the chaffing became quite irritable. Even baggy shorts did not help so he had to resort to talcum powder. He'd apply the talc before going to work but after a few days he suddenly earned the nick-name 'Talc-Ass'. This was applied to him because his fellow operatives observed clouds of talc emanating from his arse area as he walked about the warehouse! LOL :D
