The section weights included in this guide are intended to help you in understanding how much of the exam is devoted to the topics listed. In fact, the percentages directly map to the number of questions on the exam. For example, if an exam has 60 questions, and Section 1 is weighted at 50%, then 30 of the questions on the exam will relate to Section 1 (60*50% = 30).

Please be warned that section weights are NOT used to calculate your score. Scoring is far more complicated as exam questions may be given different weights based on their overall importance. Because some questions may have different point values assigned to them, section weights and exam scores do not always have a one-to-one correlation.

For more information on how scoring works in Citrix exams read the blog The Scoring Secrets for Citrix Exams - Divulged.

Interpretation of Objectives

Candidates should refer to the objectives and examples listed in this guide in order to determine which topics will be on the exam, as well as examples of the topics that could be tested.

For example, if the objective reads “Configure monitors” and one of the examples reads, “determine when to use which type of monitor,” exam-takers could expect to see:

• A question that requires determining which type of monitor to configure…o Which type of monitor should a Citrix Administrator configure…

• …based on given requirement(s)o …to validate that a specific text string is returned in a web server

response?

Note: The examples listed in the “Sections, Objectives, Examples and References” section of this guide do NOT encompass all potential topics that could be tested. The examples are only provided as guidance.

The objectives and examples for this exam were developed by Exam Project Managers and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) based on identified tasks that related to Citrix ADC12 in enterprise environments.

The number of questions written for each objective relates directly to the importance of that objective and is proportional to how frequently that task is performed.

Introduction

Exam-takers should refer to the objectives listed in the “Sections, Objectives, Examples and References” section of this guide in order to determine which topics will be on the exam and examples of topics for each objective.

For example, if the objective reads, "Troubleshoot high availability" and one of the examples reads, “determine how to resolve a given issue”, exam-takers could expect to see:

A scenario describing an issue with high availability -Scenario: A Citrix Administrator is attempting to configure high availability for a Citrix ADC MPX pair. Each Citrix ADC appliance resides in a different subnet. The administrator noticed that network connectivity between the appliances was lost once the high availability pair was established.

A question that requires determining how to resolve the given issue -What must the administrator enable to correct this issue?

The objectives for this exam were developed by Exam Project Managers and Subject matter experts based on identified tasks that relate to installing, configuring and/or operating Citrix ADC 12 in enterprise environments.
