Hi All,

Does anyone have any experience of undertaking the exam C2090-180 IBM Cognos BI Professional?

The IBM website shows a link to a presentation from a workshop that they no longer run, as the only test preparation material. Could anyone advise whether they feel this has sufficient content to satisfy the exam, or whether I need to look to other sources in addition?

I've already completed the Author, Multidimensional Author and Metadata Models exams, and found the related courses essential to do so.

Thanks in advance,

James

Hi,

You should definitely go through the presentation, and also read up on some of the more advanced Administration topics too. I seem to recall the questions were a bizarre mix of CSIM theory from the workshop (which you should find in the presentation) and quite detailed Admin questions. I'm thinking it might be worth you looking at the IBM Certified Administrator materials if you don't have this certification already.

Good luck!!

MF.
Meep!

Hi MF,

Many thanks for your quick reply. I'm slowly working through the presentation, quite a fair bit to get through!

I don't have the Administration certification yet, but I'll be sure to go through the OEM Admin & Security Guide at least, and/or maybe consider gaining that certification first, it's on my list anyway.

Thanks again,

James

JamesR - Where did you find the presentation materials at?  I'd like to study for the same certification.  Thank you.
