Hi all, I wanted to inquire if any of you that has already taken and passed the CAPM exam, when you had questions regarding calculations, were you able to use a calculator and/or pencil/pen and paper to do them? Not saying I can't calculate in my head, but I'd rather be sure. Hope something is allowed, so maybe someone can enlighten me. Thank you!

Hi Angelica,

there is an online calculator available, similar to the windows build-in calculator.
If you do the exam online, you are not allowed to use paper&pencil; instead of that, you need to use the also build-in whiteboard.
If you do the exam in a test center, it depends I would say. Some will hand out you some pieces of paper and a pencil; others will
give you a tablet or something similar.
If you want to be 100% sure you need to contact them directly, I guess.
