Who should take this exam?

Although anyone can take this exam, most successful candidates have at least 2 years of real-world experience working with HP servers, storage, networking, and software products in enterprise environments, analyzing customer requirements, designing enterprise solutions, and have taken the recommended training.

Tips for taking this exam
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.
