EMC E20-390 - VNX Solutions Specialist Assistance

DirtySouthDirtySouth Posts: 314Member ■□□□□□□□□□
I've been working on passing the EMC VNX Solutions Specialist for Implementation Engineers exam (E20-390). I've gone through all of the online and online-instructor led training, but unfortunately haven't been able to pass the exam. Whats crazy is that I've worked with EMC VNX and other EMC arrays for years. I feel that there are a number of questions that are purely trivia and irrelevant to knowing the product. By the way, the exam was updated on January 10th of 2014. I was wondering if anyone else has completed this exam and could offer any advice.

    I haven't done the VNX exam, but I did finally pass the Clariion exam about 3years ago, and my recollection is the same as your experience with VNX - some questions just aren't that relevant to implementing or supporting a Clariion/VNX in a production environment. I passed it on my third (I think) attempt... there's a thread about my experiences around here somewhere. I remember a combination of Unisphere Help, VNX Whitepapers on the hardware and software components, and course materials are all covered in the exam.

    Did you happen to catch which knowledge domains you were weaker in (I don't remember whether or not this is covered on the score report)?

    I took the exam 20 days ago and fail it.....A lot of tricky questions about replicas and file systems, not relevant to the administration of the VNX system. Can some tell me if there is a site where I can get an updated version of the exam?

    EMC used to publish an practice test, I think there was a link to it on the exam blueprint document. It's been a few years for me, so I don't know whether they still do this.
