The questions were easy to understand, and everything extra is provided, such as environment variables, and commands not related to Fabric.

The exam was all practical, and one of the nice things was that you could copy and paste certain parameters, and a notepad was provided.

The questions are clearly written, I like the fact that I can copy and paste from them. I like the Flag and UnFlag feature for keeping track of the questions that are not answered yet.

The whole experience of the Test was amazing. I had never done a Cert as interactive, the AWS certs I have taken were all multiple choice. I thought this was going to be multiple choice questions too, but I was wrong, I needed to focus more on the labs, and less on the E-learning chapters.

Hands on, and no need for memorization.
