Hello everyone,

I read quite a lot about the exam, however, I couldn't find a very satisfying answer to the following question:

Is there some kind of a structure (sequence) in the exam based on the knowledge areas/process groups or are the questions selected randomly and I have to identify the knowledge area and process group for each question for each question myself?

Bennet, the exam questions are in a random order. You will be expected to determine which domain and process you are in for each question (if it is not explicitly stated).

Also, keep in mind that there are 25 beta questions that are not counted toward your score and those questions can appear anywhere in the exam.
