    Btw, if you are thinking this is a free lunch, you are mistaken. There are a lot of questions to answer in a small amount of time.

    I made that mistake in taking the Netscaler 10.5 beta exams. I'm a casual Netscaler admin...performing tasks here and there as needed. To pass those exams, though, you need to know your stuff.


    I posted a topic just like this when those exams were released for free. After I gave a post-exam review, the entire thread was deleted. There was nothing there in violation of NDA, so I've wondered what that was about. If a mod could explain that to me, it would be appreciated.

    I forgot to post after completing my exam. It was a hard slog. I only got halfway through reviewing my answers, before I had had enough. I still had 19 minutes left on the clock, but my brain was mush.

    It would be interesting to see what questions end up in the final exam. I knew they were going to ask questions on permissions but it felt like 25% of all questions had something to do with permissions (no I'm not saying what the permissions are in relation to or for which product - read the exam guide).

    No idea if I passed. I didn't think that many questions were real world.

    Anyone else completed the exam?

    Agreed, definitely a hard slog! Would prefer the exam with a simulation or two vs 167 questions!

    No idea if I passed either, have you got your results yet/how long did it take?

    I believe Citrix takes their sweet time with beta exams. Not sure why. So I'm guessing mid April would be the earliest.

    I am not able to see at www.training.citrix.com
