Hey guys! I'm a reasonably experienced IT guy who has neglected certifications so I'm currently going through your MCSA Server 2012 stuff, starting with 70-410. I'm on the IPv4 Addressing episode and Don is presently going through the binary conversion of IP addresses. As someone who sucks at math, this is rather hurting my brain but I feel I could do it if I practised his method. Here's the problem: Don talks about having a piece of paper or a dry erase board to do the work on but I take Microsoft exams online with online proctoring and they very explicitly do not allow anything like that to be present in your exam environment. Their rules specifically state that if they see anything like that or suspect me of using it, I can get disqualified. Their exam software also locks me out of swapping windows to use things like Notepad and such.
My question is, how likely do you think it is that these questions will come up on the exam? I know you can't guarantee anything but I'm curious if you have a guess. I simply do not have the mental means to do these kinds of calculations purely in my head but with online proctoring, I think that would be my only option. If these questions aren't super likely to come up, then I'm not too concerned. If they are, I'll likely just have to guess at them. Thanks!
