NS0-158 Exam - Suggestions on areas to focus on?

Hello,

 

I am preparing to take the NS0-158 NCDA exam and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on areas to focus on for the test?  Other than of course practiing in the simulator and reading the documentation.  Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Read through the prep page for the exam:

Take the practice test:

I think it's more focus on CLI commands and interpreting CLI outputs than it used to be in earlier versions.

Hi,

 

I am currently attending the Netapp training (Cluster admin + Data protection) and would like to get some feedback :

 

- did you pass the exam ?

- what is your experience, and recommanded time to feel comfortable for exam passing ?

- do you have any other useful tips ?

 

Cheers

Laszlo -

 

You're in class - ask your instructor !

 

I'm teaching the same classes this week, and used your questions on this post for discussion with the class.

 

Say 'Hello' to your instructor for me as well ?

Laszlo,

 

I'm not a netapp guru, i'm just the guy who manages various types of arrays, various vendors, but  i have migrated couple of 7 mode arrays in metrocluster config to Netapp CDOT 8.3 and now manage them on daily basis. Unfortunatelly I didn't pass the exam 158.

5 or 4  correct answers more and i'd pass it Smiley Happy

I thought that just on the basis of couple years of experience with 7 mode and cdot 8.3 i should pass it, but exam was very focused on new version 9.1 features, new CLI commands/outputs, in general although Netapp recommends everywhere using GUI on the exam you will have more CLI oriented questions..

So long story short I will be adding new nodes to my cDot clusters soon and they will be on 9.1 version, so i will give a try to pass that exam when i complete upgrade to 9.1 and have some time to play with that version.

If you're lucky to be on netapp training now ask lots of questions about new features on 9.1 (i assume you have experience with earlier versions ?)

 

Good Luck
