Tips for taking this exam

Rather than emphasize simple memorization, HP exams attempt to assess whether you have the knowledge and skills that a Storage Solutions Architect requires on the job. Therefore, many test items present a scenario, which outlines a particular environment or problem. You may also need to use exhibits to complete the test items successfully.

The exam will be presented in blocks, also known as sections. You can move from question to question within the block or section, to skip questions or to change your answers, or both. However, once you submit your answers for each block or section, you cannot return to a previous block or section to review these questions or change your answers.

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.
