    For each real number α, let E(α) denote the set of real numbers with exact order α. A theorem of Güting states that for α≥2 the Hausdorff dimension of E(α) is equal to 2/α. In this note we introduce the notion of exact t–logarithmic order which refines the usual definition of exact order. Our main result for the associated refined sets generalizes Güting's result to linear forms and moreover determines the Hausdorff measure at the critical exponent. In fact, the sets are shown to satisfy delicate zero-infinity laws with respect to Lebesgue and Hausdorff measures. These laws are reminiscent of those satisfied by the classical set of well approximable real numbers, for example as demonstrated by Khintchine's theorem.
