If you know where to look in the man pages for specific pieces of
information, you'll have time to do so. If you need to read through the
installed documentation under /usr/share/doc/<application> you likely won't
have time to complete the test successfully.
As a smart man once told me, the test is as much about time management as
it is about knowing the material. Part of time management is knowing where
to look for command syntax if you don't know it by heart.
During my test, I did reference man pages because I've already got too much
useless knowledge inside my brain. It was more important to me to be able
to know where to get the esoteric/specific info than it was for me to have
it committed to memory. If you don't know which command-line *options* to
use in test scenarios, using man pages is not that big a deal, timewise. If
you don't know which *command* to use for test scenarios, using man pages
to find them will take far too long.
Just my two cents.
