Novell CLP 10 exam


Hi to all,

My employer wants me to do the Novells CLP 10 exam in the near future.

I have no idea what the questions look like.

Can anyone give me some exam questions of the CLP 10 exam?

Thanks.

Geeko

The centre you are training at may be able to assist with mock tests and the suchlike, but any one who is not accredited by Novell should not, under any circumstances, be supplying them. Firstly I believe there is an NDA for these things and secondly you have no way of verifying their quality.

If all else fails, look at the syllabus and make sure you know it all.

I took the CLP9 exam a couple of years ago, and XavierP is correct, all candidates must sign a non-disclosure agreement binding them not to discuss the content of the exam questions.

What I can tell you is that the exam is a practical. At the test centre, you will be connected remotely to two virtual servers running SLES. You will be given a number of practical tasks to complete, covering various areas of server administration. There is no written element to the exam, and no way to predict exactly what you will be asked to do. Two of my colleagues took the exam on the same day as me, and we all had completely different questions.

Although the exam is (obviously) specific to Novell / SUSE, the server administration tasks are fairly straightforward and the sort of thing that would be covered by any decent entry-level Linux training program (CLP, RHCT, LPI1 etc). Find yourself a good Linux study guide (ideally the CLP Self-Study materials, which you can order from Novell directly on-line), learn everything in it, get plenty of practice at home or at work, and you'll be fine.

Trying to pass the CLP (or any other exam, if it's any good) by predicting what questions you'll be asked is a risky game at best. The point of certification is to prove that you know what you're doing, so get yourself to a point where you feel comfortable doing most day-to-day server admin tasks, and you'll be ready for anything that the CLP exam can throw at you. Good luck!

I was reading through the first book of the novell clp. It apears to cross over with linux+. Am I correct with this assumtion? Also Is the exam simular to RHEL and timed? Also with the media, any reason whay gcc and make not installed by default? I am trying to get live on the net with the desktop version so I can learn the networking aspect of it. I am tring to get 1 of 2 drivers working for wireless (either rtl8185nor rtl8187l). The drivers need to be compiled and then insmoded to the kernal. I have installed gcc and make but the script I need to run puks when it needs to find make, gcc and sources(??? i beleive). Is there a CCFLAG for make that needs to be used? I did the ./configure thing for gcc and make both with the standard install nothing fancy.

Hi

CLP 10 need real hands-on i will suggest u to attent training. coz in training u will learn many thing which are required for exam. there are few admin area which u will need to concentrate.

Also this test is totally based on hand-on so one who appear for the exam need to understand working structure of linux.

Its worth to go the test.

Try you luck by working hard on hands-on.

one of the best resource is CLP 10 manual and hands-on practice book.

Warm Regards

When I took my exam, I did it on a machine which was pretty locked down, it allowed access to the two remote virtual servers as per my previous post but not a lot else. If memory serves, I think one of the test conditions was that you weren't allowed to access the Internet, you certainly wouldn't be allowed to take your own laptop in.

Luckily for me the man and info pages were available on both the virtual servers, I probably wouldn't have got through it without them!

Obviously in the real world, the Internet is a fantastic resource which we all use all the time, but the purpose of the exam is to demonstrate your knowledge of the course content, so my advice is still to get hold of the course materials and make sure you're familiar with them before taking the exam.

Hi

You will not get any internet access as this exam will use novell practicum emulator which allow access only to two virtual machines but yes u will have man pages so you can freely make use of it.

NCLP n NCLE requires lots of hands on and best way to get system configured is to use YasT.... so i will suggest know Yast better.

Best of luck.

Considering it is a test of your knowledge not the internet's knowledge. If you remotely feel nervous about the test, study more your not ready. When you go into the exam you should be able to look at it like it's just another job. This exam is geared for people who have 6 months plus hands on in a production environment.
