Exam description

This exam tests your skills on complex enterprise networks and HP TippingPoint security devices.

Who should take this exam?

This exam is for network engineers, network administrators, network technicians, security administrators, systems engineers, system administrators, network security strategists and planning architects.
Exams are based on an assumed level of industry standard knowledge that may be gained from the training, hands on experience, or other prerequisite events. You should also be knowledgeable about general networking (switching/routing/VLANs), have experience with HP TippingPoint NGFW and SMS devices, and have experience implementing security policies.

Exam contents

This exam has 25 questions. Here are types of questions to expect:
  • Multiple choice (multiple responses)
  • Multiple choice (single response)

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.
