Hi Guys,

Not sure if you already know this, but to view types of questions asked (think you have to be a partner though),

From the QlikView site -> Partners -> Partner Portal -> Education -> Training -> Education -> Certification

Then on the right hand side under "Prepare for Exam", choose from Designer, Developer or Systems Administrator for more informaption on what to expect in the exam.

Hope this helps someone.



As I am going to give my developer certification exam this week. So please can u suggest me the  type of questions that were asked in certification exam.Or if possible for u please give me your mail id so that i can contact  u.

So it´s not enough with Developer course and Set Analysis tutorial? I have a year experience with qlikview, complex expressions in set analysis, especially thanks to the community , and I did the 'Tutorial' and 'Advanced Course', what do you think I should study apart of these things? Wich and where are all the training manuals ??

What about AccessPoint and QMEC? Are there questions about that?

All information will be appreciated.



there are different exams for developer / designer and System Administrator (check also http://www.qlik.com/us/services/training/certification).

If you've worked a year with QV11, if most of the questions in the forum don't really take you much time to answer (or to understand the solution), if you have some technical / DB background, the designer / developer exam should not be a big problem (well, it's not a no brainer, but nothing to be scared about).

As with every multiple choice exam, read the questions carefully and watch your time.

If you have already some real world working experience, I personally wouldn't spend too much time on looking for tutorials or course materials.

I don't have much information about the System Administrator exam, if that's what you are interested in.

I was talking about developer exam.

Your words makes me more confident to do the exam, I will take care about the multiple choice, that´s my concern, especially because of the time to answer all the questions. It would be nice if there was a particular exam preparation to measure time of the schema questions that I assume are the longest.

Good luck to all that are going to take the exam!

Don't worry about the time, it will be sufficient.No matter how big the schema question is, you can answer in no time(of course if you know the answer!)
