You should see the exam I wrote this morning... One of the sections was visual identification of RF connectors, and the images were practically unrecognizable (probably a 5th generation xerox)
BNC wasn't that tough because of the white ferrule, but boy did it take me a while to pick out the PL259.
There was other stuff too, like they kept referring to OC-1 as STS-1 (which I've never come across before today, I only associated them because they had the same bitrate)
I'm still kicking myself for the one answer I realized was wrong about 2 minutes after finishing the test: When asked for the number of PCM bits per sample, I chose 16 (I was thinking 16-bit digital audio) but in telephony the usual is 8 bits x 8000 samples/sec = 64kbps
3 hours allotted for the test, 3/4 of the questions in 45 min (easy) another 45 min for the remainder. Results in 2-4 weeks.

1) Wait for disaster 2) Determine it's not your fault 3) Blackmail the culprit 4) Profit
Caution: Classless when exhausted from a tough day at work, may attempt to compensate with poor humor and Christmas cheer...
