Default Master exam

What is the difference between the journeymen level exam and master. Master is divided basically 50 / 50 when it comes to codes and calculations . But say when the state shows there being 50 code and 10 calculations . Are the master Code part of things basic code as you would find on the journeyman level ?

It's been a long time but I felt that the general code questions were of the same difficulty level as those found on the journeyman's exam. However, the master's exam had more calculation questions, and the calculations were more difficult than the journeyman examination.

Of course preparation is key! I also studied harder for the journeyman test (and got a better grade) than on the master exam. For the journeyman exam I was done with tons of time to spare, on the master's I probably only walked out with another 15-20 minutes on the clock.
The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.
