Too nervous to even notice how I did my lab, be it single or dual monitors.

Was on mobile lab in singapore, terminal response quite slow. Lucky I made it.

congrats brother for passing,

by the way i noticed in so many feedbacks that the mouse latency and terminal drag drop is slow, could be the reason bcoz the interface given to us is remote location access.

this topic of managing dual monitor efficiently i never read anywhere what candidates did, please some1 share on this.

It depends on what you are confortable with. You have basically 3 apps to manage : browser, notepad & terminal.
Some people prefer to have 1 screen dedicated to questions/architecture and the other to notepad/terminals.
Terminals can also be managed more or less effectively. Some prefer to cascade terminal windows. Other prefer to rely on the taskbar to select windows.

Anyways, this is a good idea to train with this setup and try by yourself before (or even with one small screen to have the feeling that you have a lot of space on the D day) since, as @myccie1234 said, you WILL be nervous and won't have time to spend on thinking about your windows management.

One thing worth mentioning : diagrams are huge and even on 1 entire screen, you have to scroll.

Not sure about the resolution, maybe 1280x720 ?

what about mouse latency and terminal drag drop for managing space for multiple terminals is slow like as if its windows 98 ? many candidates confirm this that its slow, and i have talked to few who says nothing like this its perfect as like our home pc everything moves fast and no clutter or slowness like selecting the text from notepad, or rearranging the multiple terminal windows.

is it because some exam centre if has less connection speed issue and the remote access works slow like in team viewer ????

I guess so. At least, "Big" exam centres have no latency issues :-)

Hello,

Do you know to what extend it is possible to change Putty settings? I read that you can change colors, but is it also possible to change paste behaviour like in normal putty?

I red that you can change those settings but that you can't save them. The modified settings work only on the current window.
To be fair, I think it's not worth messing with this, your time is too precious.

Its waste of time. When you have exam infront of you, you wont even have time to think about such things.

Lab terminal is very simiral to putty, there is no paste with right mouse (you should try shift+insert) and terminals are on top (it could  makes problem). I prefer to have 1 screen dedicated to questions/architecture and the other to notepad/terminals and I'm looking for the best position between it :)

Similar to putty?!? It is putty what you get in exam and for paste you need to right click —> Paste from menu.
