F8 paper vs F8 CBE session. Which one is better? Please share your experience if you have already taken F8 CBE session exam. Thanks.
I hated the CBE F8 exam in June, if i ever get the option never again. 45 min delay to get started…….2 PCs application failures in exam, all in all 5hour 30 min exam
Paul, that doesn’t answer his question.
He was clearly asking about which exam is most convenient in terms of exam difficulty.
If you can choose which one to sit, than it all comes down to what do you prefer – typing or writing your answers. I don’t think there is much difference between the paper and CBE in terms of exam difficulty… it is more about which way you can answer faster and can you concentrate well enough while sitting in a room full of typing people… (i found that very challenging….) I sat CBE last Monday but here we don’t get to choose, there are only CBEs available. Usually I’d prefer CBEs over paper based exams because I like the spreadsheet functionality, but here there are no calculations, so that’s irrelevant…
If you go with CBE, bring with you a pair of earplugs, helps a lot
