Hi guys,

Just wondering if anyone that has taken 291 knows if the Calc provided is a scientific one? For the Decimal to Binary conversions.....

Thanks.

    where is the calculator at?

    i didn't use it on the 290 so i didn't notice it's location, is it on the screen like the exhibits? and i just have to press the button?
    get back to studying!!!

    I would advise to memorize the binary calculations. Or as Omni suggested write them down when you enter the test room. Personally I hate exhibit questions and the less tiling I have to do the better.

    well i meant like doing, say, binary subtraction on the paper if the calc doesn't allow it.
    but you should memorize the subnet mask combos, like 128 192 224 etc.

    Yeah I should of been more clear about what I was trying to say.

    Yes, memorize the common subnet calcs is what I was referring to. I think I might be a God if I could calculate the IP addresses by just looking at them in my head. :P
