Not a technical question.....

Just need some advice from ya maestros of domino administration. Gonna attend my domino R5 520 CLS administration exam soon. I have been working hands-on with domino for the last 6 months. Are the questions really difficult or is it something that experience pays at these online exams??

Are the questions really really scenario based or r they just one-liners?? Just need to know cos my career move depends on taking this one exam.

Thanks in advance

Advice for taking the exam:

1) take the practice exam first.

2) many of the questions are worded poorly.  look at the question and the answers very very carefully.  read every question at least twice then choose the most accurate answer.  In some cases, advanced users have found that that more than one answer "can be" correct.  

I don't recall, is 520 the advanced or the basic admin test?  The basic is (or was) single server stuff, where the advanced was multi-server.

Hello lee,

Andrew told it exactly.
Only hint (if this is a real hint :) is to download the ExamGuid and look for all mentioned exam topics in AdminHelp. Because as Andrew said: there are a lot of questions where you would say "could be?!?" :-)

Here the link to ExamGuide:

Good luck for your exam :-)

If I can jump on this Band wagon... I'm looking to begin my notes designer certification.  I'm new to notes design and Loving it.  I'm finding it very challenging and fullfilling. I'm finding myself becoming very knowledgeable and I want to proceed with getting certified.  Any ideas on the best way to go about this online ??  I work full time so it would have to be an online process.  Thanks !!

Hello lee,

this was not very kind from your side.

Regular grading is an A!!!

And for such amount of points you have at least to give some friendly feedback.

I hope this is not your last question here. And for the future it would be better looking in your profile to let repair this grading by posting a zero points request asking to grade an A here:

So long,
Zvonko
