Tips for taking this exam
Rather than emphasize simple memorization, HP exams attempt to assess whether you have the knowledge and skills that a networking professional requires on the job. Therefore, some questions feature exhibits or scenarios.
You will have an average of just less than two minutes per question. Some questions will take much less time, and some will require a bit more. If allowed by the systems, you might want to answer the questions about which you are sure first and then move back to the others.
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.
