Navigation Exam. Rounding UP/DOWN and Decimal toleranceshttp://www.bobtait.com.

Hi all

About to sit my Nav exam and been working through Bobs text book.

Have a question about the Rounding UP/DOWN and Decimal tolerances for the exam answers.

Wanted to ask;

1. Are ALL the questions multiple choice or will i need to enter numbers?
2. As per Q1, IF I need to, will I be required to round UP or DOWN to whole numbers and also for the decimal places?
3. Is there any tolerances allowable?

Some questions may require you to enter a numerical value into a computer field. The examiners have indicated that rounding should be to the nearest, not necessarily up or down. In the case of multi choice questions, the question usually simply says "is closest to".

In the case of numerical values, tolerances are applied but I've never been told what they are. I guess that, in Navigation, for time speed and distance or fuel calculations, they would have to accommodate students who use the sliding scale on a navigation computer rather than a solution via a calculator. So the tolerances would have to allow for that at least.
