So has anyone taken the BCP-211 recently? Have any comments on what to study and what not to waste time on?

Those who have taken the exam would be bound by an NDA which doesn't allow them to discuss the details of the test.

I also think they want to make sure this is a good exam... seeing as it is their "top level".

She let me know they should be notifying "within the next few weeks". I bet we will hear this week, or the first week of Oct.

And like you Jibi, I had my pick of the cheap frames for my wall ;)

Just got my results on BCX-213: passed with 66%. I thought I had done better then that but passed is passed. I guess that makes me an official BlackBerry Certified Server Support Specialist--whoo-hoo.
I don't have the 410 exam on my calendar yet, but I am going to schedule it soon and make it my personal goal to score way better then 66% on that.

Hi,
I know that the best thing to do before taking an exam is to read the installation & Admin guides. but which version should i use? the latest one 4.1.6 only?
Tried to find the information on Blackberry website but i'm still not sure.
Thanks

4.1.5 was the latest when I took the exams and that's what was covered. It wouldn't hurt to read 4.1.5 and 4.1.6 just to be sure. It's pretty much the same stuff with a few fixes.

For all those that took BCP-410 and the other tests. Which test did you find the hardest? I went in and took BCP-410 (cold) and passed with a score I am not proud of. How much more difficult are the BCP-210 & 211 tests?

Hey dude,
Thanks for the info. I am seriously considering the BCP211. I should do it in a few days. My concern has been much if the real life stuff on BES usually doesnt get much mention on RIM PDF's!

How do i prepare for this? have any info? please share anything you have ..from the dumps...to the real deal..lol

Thanks...my email add is feel free to send me any stuff.

To begin preparing to attempt the Maintaining a BlackBerry Enterprise Server in a Microsoft Exchange environment exam at WES 2008 you should review the two attached documents:
1. The BlackBerry Certification Program Guide provides an overview of the program along with policies and procedures related to participating.

2. The Exam guide for the Maintaining a BlackBerry Enterprise Server in a Microsoft Exchange environment exam. This provides details specific to the exam, the exam objectives and a listing of training and resources that may help you prepare to attempt the exam.


I can send these doc to anyone who wants them or attach them to a post here. Each is smaller than 700k.

By now, all of this is freely available on RIM's website. The information I had was before it was posted on their site and includes what areas you need to study.

I've been looking into these certifications/training are they still going threw Beta? (Curious about the BlackBerry Certified System Administrator and BlackBerry Certified Support Specialist)

Woo! Just got results for BCX-212 (Supporting a BlackBerry® Enterprise
Server in an IBM® Lotus® Domino® Environment.)
I passed... 64% so 10% lower than my score for 211, but I don't care, I passed!

Hey everyone. I took the BCX-210 beta back in May. I received an email from RIM a few weeks later thanking me for taking the Beta. I haven't received anything else from them so I assumed I failed the test.

I was on the Prometric website this evening scheduling the BCP-211 test and looked at my testing history with Prometric. The Prometric site shows me as "passed" for the BCX-210 exam. Whom can I contact to confirm whether or not I passed the exam?

In fact this is the email I got about BCX-411, about 6 hours after I had sat the damned thing!

This makes me laugh, as I love the way RIM calculate "Friday September 12th xxx8211; Friday October 31st" to be a 2 week extension!

===========

BCX-411 Beta Exam Period Extension!
To accommodate the greatest number of beta candidates completing the BCX-411 xxx8211; Maintaining a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server in a IBM® Lotus® Domino® Environment beta exam we have extended the exam period by two weeks to now run from:

Friday September 12th, 2008 xxx8211; Friday October 31st, 2008

Thank you to those who have already completed or scheduled your exam. Invitees still interested in completing this exam may schedule their exam attempt through Prometric.

Follow-up vouchers for those who complete the BCX-411 exam will be distributed upon close of the beta period. All participants will receive their results approximately 6-8 weeks after the close of the beta period to allow for full analysis of the exam items and grading on the final pool of exam items.

Thank you for participating in the BlackBerry certification exam beta process!
