Proctor questions posted 01/24/2007

I am looking for the best advice on how to approach the proctor.

I tried 2 completely different approaches for each of my labs. In the
1st I asked a lot of questions and received persistent negative
feedback. So I posted a similar question to this one after the 1st lab,
and I was torn down in flames by certain people who stated that I
"obviously knew nothing"; if I had asked clear, reasonable questions, I
would receive a response. 

So I spent time between lab attempts better learning the technologies,
and in the 2nd lab asked very few questions. I basically ignored the
proctor - on the few occassions that I did ask questions, I was met with
a similar response to my 1st attempt.

I am now faced with a dilemma. Due to locality there is one location
that proves particularly practical in my endeavour to sit my next, and
hopefully last, exam. The trouble is that if there are any areas of
ambiguity... And lets face it, there are going to be at least 1 or 2
areas of ambiguity, even small areas, in the lab... I honestly am lost
when it comes to getting clarification from the proctor.

So my question is: how can I structure a question in such a way that the
response is useful? And, perhaps, should I simply not bother asking any
questions at all?

Advice appreciated.
