Netscaler 10 CCA exam.. anybody take it?

Recommended Posts

I was CCA certified in Netscaler 8 and Netscaler 9 administration, but I need to upgrade to version 10. Has anybody sat the exam recently? I don't have any training materials for version 10 and was just going to work from the administration guide, but I'd appreciate any tips on what to focus on.

 

thanks!

I passed this exam.

I dont understand why we have 1Y0-A21 and A28 ... they are 75% the same.

HA, VLANs, NS owned IPs, vServers, monitors.... they cover the same stuff.

Then there was a question on every other NS feature.

 

My take is that if you studied for A21, you will pass this one.

70 questions in 90 minutes. Pass grade is 60%.

 

I downloaded a VPX Platinum 90 day trial.

I prepared with CNS203 guide, the official prepguide, and the material from citrixxperience.

Hi mrogers,

using this table (taken from the exam prep guide) and the printed paper-result with percentages from the exam,

you can know how many questions you missed on each topic:

 

Configuring basic NetScaler settings 9%

Configuring network-related settings of the NetScaler implementation 14%

Securing the NetScaler implementation and traffic 11%

Configuring Load Balancing on NetScaler for backend servers and traffic 11%

Configuring SSL Offloading 9%

Configuring acceleration and optimization of traffic handling 9%

Customizing NetScaler traffic-handling 10%

Monitoring of network-related activities and performance 7%

Troubleshooting issues on NetScaler 20%

Total 100%

 

Since there were 70 questions, you can quickly calculate that eg Troubleshooting issues on NetScaler had 14 questions.

If the paper with the results says that you had 67% on that section, you missed 5 questions.

 

Good luck next week!

If I have time I think this will be worth while doing. I've touched netscaler twice now, but never really get the hang of it. Took me a long time just to figure out what AAA was all about.

Study from the links I posted above and you should do fine.

 

Make sure you understand the troubleshooting techniques using netscaler's logs

Thank you (late) ctxsvc,

 

Just come here to say that I took the exam last week (yes was very far from the original date plan, but happens).

 

Was pretty the same from 1Y0-A21, so was very easy to me (more than 90% score), but I have been working and playing with NS since 2012, so if you want to be cool in the exam I have to say that you will be better if you install and play few weeks before take the exam.

 

Good luck everyone!
