Exams are primarily performance-based and conducted in a "live" or simulated environment. Exam duration is around 50 minutes plus around 5 - 10 minutes signing in time and short online exam tutorial.  For MOS 2010 exams you are asked to perform a series of tasks to clearly demonstrate your skills, MOS 2013 exams present you with a project to build, with tasks and steps that build on each other.
