    Default Client asked if googled during test...

    One of my friends recently done an online test and now the client came back and asked couple of questions...Not sure how the online time bound test went as no results given after the test...

    How tests went?
    If results could have better if prepared differently..?
    Had access to internet/Google and unix command line during test..??


    What's client trying to do here with these questions..?? What kind of response expected..??

    I'd guess they're mainly checking your friend is honest, which they obviously aren't if they took the test from home (or not at the client) and answered no to the last question.

    maybe its an honest query?

    e.g.

    Not too bad, have had much worse

    They were pretty good but X could be more like M$ tests because Y.

    Question 3 & 7 you needed to know what to google for.

    1 & 4 off the top of my head.

    When you do an online test the expectation is there are no bars. It would be pointless. They're just getting feedback to improve. It's like any exam where you are allowed to take books in.

    Just answer the questions.

    They're going to find out anyway, and if you "puff yourself up" you end up wasting a day in some sort of assessment.
