Hi,

I have to agree with what Cognostechie is getting at here and really warn against going down the brain dump route. 

Presumably, by wanting to pass the IBM certification you wish to show you have reached a certain level of compentency in that particular application and employers/clients will therefore expect a certain level of knowledge from you.  Using braindumps short circuits your learning experience and you end up knowing how to remember 50 Q&A's (usually illegally sourced) not how to use the application. 

If your flagged by the prometric software as having used the dumps then you also face the prospect of being banned from all IBM certifications and other associated certifications such as Microsoft etc.

So best advice is don't try and find an easy way to get hold of a certification as by itself its pretty worthless and instead spend the time learning the application. That way you will hopefully have a long and prosperous career.

Cheers

Rob

Thanks in advance.


I have sat and passed this exam, and I can even recall some of the questions. Here is my own mini-dump:

1. What is the brand name commonly used for IBM Business Intelligence tools?
A. SAP Business Objects
B. Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE)
C. Qliktech QlikView
D. Rob Ashe
E. Stitch Query.

Obviously the answer is E

2. When enabling the debug and hidden menus in Report Studio, which tools are added into the toolbox?
A. Spanner
B. Socket Set
C. Hammer
D. Mmmmmm! Cute girl driving an Audi!
E. What was the question?

I think I got distracted by something when attempting this question, but I'm sure the answer was D

I hope these are a good start for you in your quest to become a certified Cognos BI professional. I'm sure that there are many others on the forum who can also contribute the useful and accurate questions they remember, and provide all the information you need to be successful.

Good luck!!

Question: What are different ways to join queries?
A) In holy matrimony
B) Hand-in-hand
C) At that hip
D) All of the above

Answer: D


Question: What are classes and how are they used?

Anyone else remember any questions??

B) Color the report red and have a bull follow it
C) Add more horesepower to Cognos engine
D) Push gas pedal more
E) Add wings to the software so it can fly

Answer - B

What are cascading prompts?

A) Prompts that are married to each other and take each others role as and when needed
B) The second prompt changing it's color based on the first prompt
C) A Male and Female prompt walking in the downtown holding hands together
D) Prompts created by a person who passed the certification exam by obtaining dumps from a Cognos users forum
E) A Male and Female prompt of the same color who gave birth to a baby prompt of the same color

It's hard to remember all questions at the same time but I will come back and post more as and when I remember the questions.

Gosh, I had no idea the tests were this hard. I thought about getting certified, but maybe I had better wait for another couple of years to take training and gain more experience.

Thank you for sharing! Made my Friday... :-)

Here is one:

Match the different filter types with the appropriate description:

Filter Types:
(A) Simple Filter
(B) Complex Filter
(C) Model Filter
(D) Default Filter

Descriptions:
(1) You wake up and realize you can't make coffee unless you fashion a filter out of paper towels, napkins, or toilet paper.
(2) You daydream of traveling the world and taking up residence in a foreign country rather than listening to the drone of a Monday morning meeting at work
(3) Deciding not to pick up the telephone when your mother-in-law's phone number shows in the caller ID
(4) A bodyguard hired to protect attractive young men or women who make a living being photographed.

Answer:

(A)(2)
(B)(1)
(C)(4)
(D)(3)

Wonderful! I don't think that question was on my exam, but there does seem to be a random selection used. I agree with your suggested solution too - excellent!! :)

Actually there was a 5th description to make it a little more difficult to do the matching. It was:

(5) This isn't out-of-the-box functionality. You need the SDK.

One More, but this one was a Framework question to test the backend familiarity of the candidate -

Which of the following statements is true? Pl. support your answer with the reason given in the 2nd part.

A) A field is an object inside a table
B) A table is an object inside a field
C) Both are objects within each other
D) None of them are objects in the database
E) The question is wrong

Reasons -

A) That's just how databases are designed
B) A field can be the size of a football field and cognos consultants put tables inside the field to have their lunch
C) Field and tables are real estate and furniture items and have nothing to do with Cognos
D) If you don't know the answer yourself, how can you test others?
E) A database contains data, not fields and tables.

The answer in both cases is B.
