I am not seeing too many syntax questions on the Boson exam. I find that curious?

I am finding the compliance questions difficult to get through... I should have studied those a little more?! I work with PCI compliance stuff at work, but all the NIST, FISMA, ISO2700x stuff is getting me every time. I wish there was a chart I could find to get me through these questions. I can't believe anyone memorizes this stuff unless you directly have to work with it?
