On the New Exam: In short, it's tougher than the old version. Although there are lesser pages in the study guide (35% less), more emphasis will be placed on applying the knowledge and skills taught. All new IBF exams will come with Multiple-Response questions, which means that instead of choosing one of the correct combinations (e.g. "I & II only"), you will need to tick 2 or more of the 4 checkboxes correctly to score. So, no more using of "rule out" strategy when tackling such questions. Click here for IBF's EXAM FAQ.
