    How to prepare for a exam/exam in one day?

    Can I say the both way?
    * How to prepare for exam in one day?
    * How to prepare for an exam in one day?

    No.
    If you do not understand the previous posts which ask you not to use asterisks as quotes, please say so.
    If you don't understand this post, please write, "I don't understand your post."

    1. How to prepare for an exam in one day?
    2. How to prepare for exam in one day?
    I have seen these two sentences to be used. Which one is correct? Or both are correct?
    I would like to know when to use asterisks as quotes.

    As Piscean said: never.

    Having said that, I have seen asterisks used as quotation marks several times - leading me to suppose that keyboards in some parts of the world don't feature a " key.
