Tips for taking this exam

This examination assesses whether you have the knowledge and skills that an HP IDOL administrator requires on the job. You may also need to use exhibits to complete the test items successfully.

Take the time to read the entire question and consider all of the options carefully before you answer. If the question indicates that it features an exhibit, study the exhibit and reread the question. Make sure to select the answer that correctly responds to the question that is asked — not simply an answer that includes some correct information. If the question asks for more than one answer, remember to select each correct answer. You will not receive partial credit for a partially correct answer.

A full understanding of advanced HP IDOL architecture and HP IDOL technology solutions.
