Question QQ - Exams BCP-410 & BCP-411

Please Login to Remove!

I'm currently preparing exam BCP-411 Maintaining a BlackBerry Enterprise Server in an IBM Lotus Domino Environment. Having a lot of my BES peers supporting the Exchange BES, I asked about the types of questions which may appears in the exam BCP-410 Maintaining a BlackBerry Enterprise Server in a Micorsoft Exchange Environment. I thought to myself and that the only difference must be in the mail platform and everything else BlackBerry should be tested the same. I heard about testing on knowledge of S/MIME, PGP, VPN, WLAN etc... for the BlackBerry portions of the questions. Well how I am wrong when I compare their respective exam objective. It appears that BCP-411 objectives stated in the exam guide is purely BES related. Could someone correct me if I'm wrong? Could it be that the exam guide has mis-informed the Domino candidates? Could someone verify?
