Hi everyone,

I recently took the 70-284 exam and one of the questions needed me to do some subnetting calculations.
The calculator did not have the scientific mode (for binary, hex etc).
Is this true?

I'm pretty sure I've heard ppl say that the calc should have that.

Had to do it manually.

Anyway I passed (just heh).
So now I'm an MCSA:m

    From my experiences:
    Prometric = No Scientific Calculator
    Pearson Vue = Scientific Calculator

    It may vary from location to location, however.

    Also, make sure you know how to subnet on paper. It's really not that difficult if you know how to do it by calculator.
