Yeah, the answers are tricky just like in GMAT. One is correct and another one 'looks' correct . That's what makes the exam harder. That's a tip for all newbies trying to get certified. Always pick the answer that does 'not look' correct.  In fact, pick the one that looks wrong. You will have better chances of getting certified !

I am going to make the c612 Certification next week, and i already have learned the important stuff...

Q: In Report Studio, an author creates a report using package A. Users should be able to drill though to target report. What must the author do?

A.
a) Add drill-trhough definitions
b) Everybody carries his own package
c) Drill it baby, drill it
d) wtf are u talkin 'bout?

Q: In RS, how do u get third measure dimension into a chart?

A:
a) Use Area Chart
b) Use Bubble Chart
c) Buy a 3d Monitor
d) again, WTF are u talking about?!

Preparation is everything  ;D

Hi, i want to take up Cog-612 exam.
Has anyone taken it up recently??
If u have, Please send me the dumps to I am blatantly trying to cheat on my Cognos certification exams. I  must be mad to think I could post this onto a Cognos forum and get away with it. I'm sorry to see I have now been banned. Don't be like me, kiddies. Study hard, get experience and pass your exams without cheating.

Is it difficult to pass the exam??

Thanks in advance.

Hi

Out of curiosity before you posted did you actually read this thread and get the gist of what it was trying to say?

 ;D best admin-edit EVER!
was laughin tears...
but to be serious...i did the cog612...it is not that hard to master, all you need to do is practise...do the examples of the courses (i did the online version self study j158/159) and you should be prepared.
Also, you can find some example questions and what are the main topics online on the ibm sites...

if i remember correctly:
create reports 7 questions
Focus reports = 6 quewstions
Enhance reports 22 questions
Create reports usoing query model = 9 questions
setup burinst 3 questions
event studio 3 questions.

total = 50 quesitons, you need at least 37 correct (74 %), time 1 hour.

Good luck, cheerz :p

This is classic, and thanks to all who participated!  I'm actually considering some career development on the BI-side of the house, as I have been predominantly on the Planning side.  The title of this thread caught my attention for that reason.  It was a worthy distraction for a few minutes...thanks for all the great questions, complete with answers and everything!   ;)

Hello community.  There hasn't been much activity of late on this topic.  Does that mean folks aren't interested in Report Authoring?  Are people moving to some other BI application tool??? :o

I'm intrested in taking the cert exam, and came across this thread.  This post in particular seemed helpful.  I'm curious to know what self study is being referred to below?  Anyone?...anyone?  Bueller?

Cheers!

Hi San,

if you do the certification i guess you did kind of a seminar before? Online, self paced or a pyhsical presence seminar?!
Anyhow, there should be documentations with that IBM seminar..just practise with them. Thats what i refered as "self study"
The number of questions refere to the questions in the certifitication, xxx question for each topic (which you might find in the seminar documents).
gl and cheerz :P

Does anyone have any recommended resources to study for the Cognos BI author certification? I am new to cognos and My knowledge is very limited. Is it a good time to think about certification or you need actual hands on work experience and then give certification?

Thanks

I just did my cert last week.
What i did was to watched a bunch of youtube tutorials (theres a series of videos for report authoring) and tried to do the exercises as i watch them. They're pretty much spoon feed with the step by step procedure and the explanations as well.

I did passed the exam thou not the score that i had expected. Then i started reviewing the documentations and able to identified some most of the items which i think i got wrong.

So, to pass the exam you need to read the documents (intro/and cook books) and do hands on exercises.

cheers!
