2. The CCNA exam is written in a way that makes it extremely difficult for people who just memorized answers.

3. The CCNA exam is written to make it extremely difficult for people who just memorized answers.

4. The CCNA exam is written in such a way as to make it extremely difficult for people who just memorized answers.

MusicgoldWhich one of the following sentences is the most elegant?
2.

Note that 1 is awkward, arguably ungrammatical.
Also note that 3 is good, but it has a slightly different meaning compared to 2. In 3 there is more emphasis on the idea that the exam was written with the express purpose of making it difficult for the memorizers.

Sentence 4 is OK, but is really just a wordier version of 2.

If I were you, I would consider changing memorized to memorize.
