IBM Webshere Admin 340 test

Hi,<p>

Yesterday i cleared the IBM Websphere System Administration test 340 with 64% score. I found many of the questions that you will not find in text books, you need to either guess or apply your common sense to solve these questions.<P>
I had read following IBM red books :<br>
WAS System Management & Configuration 6198.pdf<br>
WAS Perfomance Scalability & Availability 6195.pdf<br>
WAS Security 6573.pdf<p>

Apart from these books, i could not find any other reference material. <br>

I also had given the IBM Mock test, but that was too simple as compared to actual exam and found of no use.<p>

Thanks,<br>
Praveen Singh

Congrats Praveen !!

I think there are very few people who posted about 340 and
you are one of them ,I really thank you for that.

I'm very much interested to take 340 exam
given that there are very limited resources
it would be great if you could answer the following
1> Could you able to finish the exam on time.
2> Is the exam more generic meaning you should know the concept
well to answer and questions are not straight
3> What was your preparation time (I�m kind of new to websphere though I have experience with Weblogic)
4>What�s your next plan
5> Any more hints and tips

Thank you again
Sudhir


Thanks,<br />Sudhir <br />SCJP1.4

Time : Yes, sufficient time. I finished the exam in 1 hr.
Yes, few questions are not straight forward, for that u should have practical experience with WAS.
Preperation time :My preparation time was around a month.
Next plan :IBM Exam 486 UML and OOAD.
Add. hints :Read these 3 Red books and go through Web Admin Console of WAS (2-3 times).

Did the exam questions scattered exact the same %of topics
as mentioned in the objectives are is there any particular
topic which needs to be given more attention.

If I may ask will passing of this exam valued in industry ?

I believe u know about 341 what was you criteria to choose 340 ?

I dont remember exactly but i guess so.

If u feel so, u can go for 341. that is advanced one.but 340 will be a good start.

If I may ask will passing of this exam valued in industry ?
It was my project requirement os i did that.

I believe u know about 341 what was you criteria to choose 340 ?
As the title of the certificate itself explains that 340 is basic level. In 341, they have advanced topics, like clustering etc.

I searched a lot on the net about the mock tests, sample tests ,reference materials but there is such stuff on the net only the IBM RedBooks are the one that can help u.

Good luck..

Hi Websphere Enthusiasts

1. As far as Exam 340 Vs 341 is concerned , they are different levels.
Try clearing 340 - Let me tell you that it is no cakewalk.
341 would be even more difficult.

2. Being difficult does not mean that you cannot do it , but you have to be
prepared to work hard.
The exam questions are Tricky.You have to know WAS well to answer them.

3. Unfortunately Redbooks are the only resources !!!

Best of Luck

There are, I believe, some new IBM books coming out in the next few weeks on WebSphere Admin. The developer exams are hard in one way yet have lots of irrelevances in other ways, so I imagine these are same. We are writing a developer web site to assist in the WAS certification, so if there is demand I guess my friends and I had better write an admin one as well!
