Talend certification exam examples

Hi everybody,
I have been working with Talend Open Studio for Data Integration for 3 years, and now I'm preparing to take the exam certification by reading the official documentation (Reference guide & user guide).
I know that the exam costs $100, which is a huge amount for me, so before passing the exam I want to be sure that I'm going to succeed on it. So my questions are :
1 - Is there any example of the exam ?
2 - Is there any body who passed the exam and can share his experience with us ? duration of the exam, number of questions, kind of questions, topics, examples, difficulty, ...
3 - What is the best way to prepare for the exam ? Is the official documentation enough ?
Thanks in advance,
Best regards.

Re: Talend certification exam examples

The TOS certification exams are 50-60 questions and cover the same topics as presented in the TOS for DI classes. The questions are taken from the course materials, but if you have general experience with the product that should suffice. It usually takes about an hour to complete, and you must complete the exam in a single session. You can check the training page on the web site to see what topics are covered in the class and therefore in the exam.

Hi,
To get the Enterprise certification, you need to complete the DI Enterprise and DI Enterprise Administration course.  There are more questions in the exams that cover all 3 courses for the Enterprise certifications. Please see http://www.talend.com/services/training/certification

Can you let me know within how many days should we take the exam after we purchase the same?
Should I take the exam immediately or may be wait and take whenever I am free?

Hi leeba
Sorry for the late reply, you should open a new topic when the question is slighlty different from the original topic so that we have a better visibility on it. Smiley Happy
To answer your question: You're expected to take your exam within one year of purchase. So no need to do it immediately but keep in mind this rule.
