There are only a few mac specific script steps / functions in the product, go through the help file for some info on this. Reading through the help file is very useful in preparation for the exam. You don't need to worry about flunking because you've never worked on a Mac.
As to previous versions: the exam is all about the current version. Converting an ".fp5" solution to ".fp7" is possible with FM11 so do read up on that.
Thank you very much. Those were my only worries at all. Will definitely do.

Along those lines, what's the oldest version of Filemaker that can be converted to FM 12 (by FM12)?
Apparently only fp7 files can be converted in 12. I get the following when trying to convert fp5.
This is using a script step Convert File(). When I drop on the icon, I get the normal msg, cannot read this version and must convert, and nothing.

Confirmed. Good info, Tim. That'll break some hearts around here; we have lots of .fp5 die-hards.
