I know there are already discussions about it but I'm preparing for the exam and before doing it I want at least to be sure that I'm doing it in the right way.
I'm passing the mocking test at DT University with good marks but it doesn't give me that confidence because, in the end, the questions are the same every day even if I would like to have more new questions.
I've already used my trial but in the end, all I can really testify is some scenarios with my VM and docker and the rest like Vmware, OpenStack, Kubernetes, AWS, etc it's not possible to testify because I have no such environment to access.
The documentation is useful, yes but in my opinion, it gives you a lot of info (obviously) and in my opinion, a lot of information lead you to nowhere, or at least it won't help you to focus on crucial point for the exam.
Is there any way to compare my knowledge about dDynatrace before giving the actual exam?
Thanks in advance for your suggestion and help
Solved! Go to Solution.
I consulted with the Dynatrace University team and they suggest reviewing the blueprint. It states "The Dynatrace Associate Certification is intended for individuals who have theoretical knowledge and approximately six months of hands-on experience with Dynatrace."
So it is recommended you have hands-on experience, and not necessarily just trial access. It also recommends the Associate vILT.
Hello, I found a valid dumps for the axam, I used it beside documentation for terminology that exists in the dumps and I passed the exam 🙂
I scored 85. You need to study some steps in documentation to implement monitoring in mobile app. This content is not explained in any material and in taste of test. About 6 questions are out of any study material listed above.
I uploaded my notes to this link. Feel free to download it.
yes. I did it in the begin of this month. pay attention to oneagent integration. this topic is not well covered in any material on internet. In official documentation has something to read about it.
I suppose you have access to Dynatrace University. There you can do the "Taste of the test" and get a good impression of what questions are asked. You can also watch on-demand videos on these topics.
Based on the questions in the "Taste of the test" you can see which areas you should look at and also check the documentation. So if you don't know a question or are unsure about the answer, check the online documentation.
Yes, the questions will not change (much) in "Taste of the test" and will always be the same. My point was to say that through this test you can see how the questions will be in the exam and see the topics and depth of detail.
This will help you review topics/details in the documentation, as similar questions will come up in the Exam. As I said, the on-demand videos in the university are certainly helpful as well.
The best exercise is, of course, use Dynatrace. You can also do a free trial and install the OneAgent on your host or a virtual machine. This way you can try many things and have a standalone test tenant.
Have you looked through this thread? There's some alternative study material mentioned here too, but please keep in mind that the official Dynatrace documentation and study material will always be the more recent and accurate, so best to reference whatever you find in terms of alternative material with the latest info in the docs and Dynatrace University!
Keep in mind that you'll need approx. 6 months of practical experience and the required theoretical knowledge in order to pass the Associate exam. Go through the exam preparation and review the mindmap to help you prepare for the exam.
At the moment, there aren't that many questions based on the newest features, the Associate exam is focusing more on the basics. Going through the videos on University should be a good indication, of the scope of the exam - you'll find the knowledge areas also on the certification page and the mind map there.
The practice test (and small quiz at the end of the sections in the University) are a good suggestion of how the exam looks and what types of questions are there. But, from my experience and the others, the real exam is much harder than the practice one.
PS. It's good to memorize data retention periods. 😉
