That is a BRUTAL exam.  What I did was find a training center that would sell me the course material for the class.  I then reverse engineered the labs, worked the labs several times and it still took 2 times to pass the exam.  I personally know of know one who passed that exam on the first try.  When that exam was first released, they had major problems with the scoring engine and I believe a 95% failure rate.  Citrix Education then received so many complaints they went and hand scored every exam, lowered the passing score and then people started passing.

You have like 4 or 4.5 hrs to take this exam.  That alone should tell you how hard it is.  On my first attempt I went brain dead at 3 hrs and still had 2 questions left.  I gave up and just clicked finish.  I then went back and redid my labs, along with the info gathered from taking the exam, and studying very hard for a month.  I passed it easily on the 2nd attempt.

The exam focuses A LOT on using the Advanced Access Control and the Access Gateway appliance.

If you are looking for a "cheat" exam or "study guide" to help you out, forget it.  You cannot memorize sims.  This exam is mainly sims with a couple of multiple choice thrown in.  The ONLY way to pass this exam is to lab, lab and do more labs.  Look at http://www.citrixxperience.com/ and check out his prep stuff.  They are NOT cheat materials.  You can use his study material to build labs and work thru the material.

Best wishes.  Did I tell you this exam is brutal? :)
