Tips for taking this exam

You are not required to take the recommended, supporting courses; and completion of training does not guarantee
that you will pass the exam. HP strongly recommends a combination of training, thorough review of courseware and
additional study references, and sufficient on the job experience prior to taking the 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.
