    It's been a while since I did a cert, I seem to remember before you'd go into the testing centre room, be shown to your station where there would be a pad of A4.

    Do they still let you jot down notes (from memory) in prep for the exam before it starts?

    For my CCNA I will want to draw up binary, hex and subnetting tables and charts, I know I am allowed to do this but my question is am I allowed to do this before starting the actual exam so I'm not writing charts and calculating 256^15 while the clock is ticking?

    The test centre I went to gave me a wipe clean board for me to use, with e pen to match. I was given no direct verbal instruction that I was not allowed to write on it before the exam started.

    simongrahamuk Hmmmmmmm?

    Yeah, the standard procedure these days is for them to provide you with either paper and a pen, or more often these days a wipe clean board and marker.

    What you do with these is up to you, there is nothng to stop you form writing on them before the actual exam begins.

    When I did both my A+ exams, I was told not to write on the little whiteboard thing until I had started the exam. I didn't use it anyway, but I remember them saying that.

    I don't think I was told the same on my N+, so I guess different centre's enforce the rules to different degrees.
