I've found this site when I was looking for the information regarding MCPD.
There are several types of exam questions. It may be good if we get ourselves familiar with these types:
1. Hot area questions
This kind of question asks you to indicate the correct answer by selecting one or more elements within a graphic.
2. Active screen questions
This kind of question asks you to configure a dialog box by changing one or more elements.
3. Drag-and-drop quetsions
This kind of question asks you to drag source objects to appropriate targets within a work area.
4. Build list and reorder questions
This kind of question asks you to indicate the correct answer by building an answer list.
In a build list and reorder question, you need to build a list by dragging the appropriate source objects to the answer list and then placing them in the correct order based on criteria defined in the question.
5. Create a tree questions
This kind of question asks you to create a tree structure.
You indicate the correct answer by dragging source nodes to the correct locations in the answer tree.
Nodes consist of text and a small icon.
6. Testlet exam format
7. Windows 2000 simulation questions
This kind of question asks you to indicate the correct answer by performing specific tasks such as configuring and installing network adapters or drivers, configuring and controlling access to files, and managing hardware devices. (This seems to be more applicable for System engineering exams)
You may download the MCP Exam Demos too, then you'll understand better what the aboved question types mean. It's quite fun to run through the exam demo. ^_^
There is an "Instructions" button to tell you what type of question it is, and how you should respond. A "Calculator" button is provided too.
