The section weights included in this guide are intended to help you in understanding how much of the exam is devoted to the topics listed. In fact, the percentages directly map to the number of questions on the exam. For example, if an exam has 60 questions, and Section 1 is weighted at 50%, then 30 of the questions on the exam will relate to Section 1 (60*50% = 30).

Please be warned that section weights are NOT used to calculate your score. Scoring is far more complicated as exam questions may be given different weights based on their overall importance. Because some questions may have different point values assigned to them, section weights and exam scores do not always have a one-to-one correlation.

For more information on how scoring works in Citrix exams read the blog The Scoring Secrets for Citrix Exams - Divulged.

Page 10: 1Y0-301 Deploying Citrix XenDesktop 7.6 ion Solutions Citrix... · Registration and Administration ... Deploying App and Desktop Solutions with Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop ... 1.08

Interpretation of Objectives

Candidates should refer to the objectives and examples listed in this guide in order to determine which topics will be on the exam, as well as examples of the topics that could be tested.

For example, if the objective reads, “Assess the printing infrastructure” and one of the examples reads, “Perform printer driver stress testing” candidates could expect to see:

• A scenario describing a printing infrastructure: • Scenario: A Citrix Architect is assessing the current printing

infrastructure at CGE. As part of the assessment, the architect wants to perform printer driver stress testing.

• A question that requires determining how to assess the printer drivers:• How can the architect assess which printer drivers are in use in the

current environment?

Note: The examples listed in the “Sections, Objectives, Examples and References” section of this guide do NOT encompass all potential topics that could be tested. The examples are only provided as guidance.

The objectives and examples for this exam were developed by Exam Project Managers and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) based on identified tasks that relate to building, testing and rolling out Citrix XenDesktop 7.6 solutions.

The number of questions written for each objective relates directly to the importance of that objective and is proportional to how frequently that task is performed.

Exam Structure

Introduction

This exam is separated into two parts. Part One contains simulation items. Part Two contains multiple choice items.

Part One of the Exam

In Part One of the exam test takers will be presented with 7 simulation items. During Part One of the exam, test-takers will be allowed to navigate back and forth through the simulation questions as well as mark questions for review. Once the test-taker reaches the end of Part One, there will be an opportunity to review all marked questions, as well as any incomplete questions shown in the review screen.

Once the test-taker has reviewed and answered all questions in Part One, he or she will need to end that part of the exam in order to move to Part Two. Once in Part Two, test-takers will NOT be allowed to navigate back into Part One.

Part Two of the Exam

In Part Two of the exam test takers will be presented with 65 traditional items. During Part Two of the exam, test-takers will be allowed to navigate back and forth through the questions as well as mark questions for review. Once the test-taker reaches the end of Part Two, there will be an opportunity to review all marked questions, as well as any incomplete questions shown in the review screen.

Simulation Item Types

Introduction

This exam includes 7 simulation items. The purpose of this section is to describe the look and feel and functionality of simulation items. This section of the preparation guide provides a tutorial on the user interface, scoring and answering rules, and timing matters for this unique item type.

The 1Y0-301 exam consists of some unique features that candidates need to know before attempting the exam. The user interface for this exam has been customized to meet the needs of the unique items. However, this exam also contains some standard exam components.

All of the simulation items in the 1Y0-301 exam open in the main window.

The main window in the exam may contain item scenarios, requirements or multiple-choice items, as well as the helms. The navigation helm, which is found at the lower portion of the screen, consists of the ‘Previous’ and ‘Next’ buttons. These buttons can be used to navigate forward and backward in this exam.

Helms in the Exam

In the right margin of the screen is the counter helm. This helm contains a counter, which displays the number of the item being tested. In the top margin is the title helm. The title helm of the exam includes a ‘Select for Review’ checkbox and the time remaining for the exam. The select for review and time remaining options in this exam function the same way they do in traditional multiple choice exams. See Figure 1 for an example. 21

Simulation Items Explained

Simulation items are used to test candidates’ abilities to complete specific configuration tasks. When this type of item is delivered, candidates are expected to read and synthesize information included in the scenario and then complete the listed tasks in accordance with best practices.

The main window is the first window presented for this type of item. In addition to the buttons on the helm, the main window contains a ‘Simulation’ button. Clicking this button opens the simulated environment.

Figure 1 is an example of the main window for a simulation item in the Pearson VUE environment.

Once the ‘Simulation’ button is clicked and the simulated environment is launched, candidates are presented with a console. A floating window with all the relevant information from the main window is also presented. This floating window has an additional marking functionality. It is resizable and movable; it can be closed or reopened by simply clicking the ‘X’ button in the upper right corner.

Figure 2 shows an example of the simulated environment with a floating window.

Simulation Items Explained Cont.

The simulated environment looks identical to the real user interface of the product with which candidates are familiar. Consoles can be minimized or closed; consoles can be reopened using the icon on the desktop or the task bar.

Citrix Education worked closely with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to ensure that the most relevant features and settings available in the real products are also available within the simulated environments. However, features such as Help menu items and other settings deemed irrelevant to the task(s) candidates are being asked to address or settings otherwise outside the typical path taken were not included in the simulated environments.

By default, the floating window resides in the upper-right corner of the simulated environment. Candidates can move the floating window as needed and can resize the height of the window, but not the width. When candidates complete the required tasks or want to return to the main window, they should click the ‘Done’ button in the floating window. Clicking the ‘Done’ button saves the final configurations made and closes the simulation window. Whether or not candidates configure any settings or complete the required configurations, they still have to click the ‘Done’ button to exit the simulated environment. Candidates can go back into the simulated environment after clicking the ‘Done’ button as many times as they wish and make changes as desired. Whenever they click the ‘Done’ button, whatever new configurations they make will be saved. If they did not configure anything, their original configuration will remain as-is.

Note: Whenever candidates try to visit the simulated environment for a simulation item that has been visited on a previous occasion, the following warning message appears:

Simulation Items Explained Cont.

Clicking the ‘Done’ button prompts the simulated environment to save its state for scoring and results retention. Depending on the number of configuration steps or the system resources on the test center’s computer, candidates may experience a slight delay after clicking the ‘Done’ button. While such delays are rare, if they occur, Citrix recommends that candidates refrain from using the mouse or keyboard while the simulation saves its state, as these actions may prolong the delay. Delays of this type are rare and usually last no longer than 20 seconds.

If candidates choose to mark an item incomplete before exiting the simulated environment, they can do so by checking the ‘Incomplete’ checkbox at the bottom of the floating window. At the end of the exam, candidates may review the items they marked as incomplete.

Candidates can also reset the simulated environment by clicking the ‘Reset’ button. Clicking the ‘Reset’ button clears any configurations made within a particular simulated environment. This restores the simulated environment to a clean state; the state it was in when it was first visited. Candidates should only use the ‘Reset’ button if they want to reconfigure the simulated environment from its original state. Otherwise, they can delete or undo unwanted configurations and they will still get the appropriate score. After clicking Yes to reset the simulation, there will be a slight delay as the item reloads. A ‘Help’ button is also provided in the floating window. This button provides basic help text to guide candidates on how to use simulations. This help text is not customized to the specific items and will not guide candidates on how to make specific configurations for an item.

Figure 4 is an example of the floating window.

Scoring and Answering Process

Scoring

In order to receive points on a simulation item, candidates must complete all the tasks in accordance with the requirements in a manner that is deemed acceptable. For this exam, SMEs defined “acceptable” as actions that meet the requirements without rendering harm to the environment. In those items in which a best practice is identified, candidates are expected to adhere to the best practice.

Based on the nature of what is being tested, candidates may receive partial credit for completing some of the required tasks. The exam was designed to allow for partial scoring. Candidates can earn points for items in which all critical tasks are correctly configured rather than only gaining credit when all tasks, critical and non-critical, are configured correctly.

Answering Process

SMEs identified the most common paths candidates may take to perform the tasks included in a simulation item. As such, candidates will find that most actions that could be taken to configure a real implementation to meet the requirements are also available in the simulations. Examples of possible ways to answer items include using various menu options, mouse clicks, keyboard inputs and multiple consoles as needed. While the Exam Development team endeavored to ensure that the most common ways to complete a task were available in the simulation items, some actions may be excluded or otherwise unavailable within the simulation. In those limited cases in which an action is not allowed in a simulation, candidates will need to use an alternative, correct action to complete the required configurations.

Candidates are required to create and/or configure specific settings and/or policies within the simulated environments. Some of the simulation items contain specific instructions that specify how candidates should name these settings and policies. However, if not specified, candidates are not penalized for misspelling the names of these settings and/or policies. For some of the simulation items, Citrix did not specify how the settings and/or policies should be named. In such cases, candidates can name the settings and/or policies whatever they choose.

Time Matters for this Exam

System Clock versus Actual Time

The time remaining is displayed in the top right corner of the main window for all the item types; however, it is not visible from within the simulation items once the simulated environment is launched. The time displayed on the task bar of the simulated environment desktop is part of the simulation. It is the time of the simulated server and, therefore, may not be accurate.

Candidates configuring a simulation item can use the Alt + Tab combination keys to toggle between the simulated environment and the main window in order to view the time remaining.

Question Answer

How is the exam graded? When a candidate selects an option as the correct response to an item or configures a setting or set of settings, those settings are saved in the exam when the candidate clicks the ‘Next’ or ‘Done’ button. At the end of the exam, when candidates click the ‘End Exam’ or ‘Exit Exam’ button, the final responses to the items on the exam are graded using scripts and scoring logics.

How are my grades calculated? A complex but thorough grading algorithm is used to calculate your final score. Your grades are calculated using the scores you receive for each item.

Note: Calculating your final score using the averages for the sections on the exam will, in most cases, vary from the final score indicated on your score report. Please see the Section Titles and Weights section for more details.

What happens when I configure a setting in the simulated environment and click the ‘Done’ button?

When you configure a setting in the simulated environment and click the ‘Done’ button, the setting you configured is saved and you are returned to the main window of that item.

What happens when I configure a setting in the simulated environment, check the ‘Incomplete’ check box, and click the ‘Done’ button? Will the item be scored?

Yes, the configured setting will be saved, but the item will be flagged as ‘incomplete’ so that you may revisit it at the end of the exam. Since you have already configured the environment, you do not have to remove the incomplete check mark in order to get credit. You will be graded according to your response, regardless of whether the item is marked as ‘Incomplete’ or not.

What happens when I configure the simulated environment, but then make a change to a particular setting in the environment and click the ‘Done’ button?

The particular setting you change will be updated, but all the other settings will remain the same.

Question Answer

What happens when I configure a setting in the simulated environment, click the ‘Done’ button, go back into the simulated environment and configure new settings?

The old setting and the new settings are saved and graded at the end of the exam.

What is the function of the ‘Reset’ button? The ‘Reset’ button clears the simulated environment and returns the item to the state it was originally in when the candidate first launched it.

Note: After clicking ‘Yes’ to reset the simulation item there is a slight delay while the simulation item reloads.

What is the function of the ‘Done’ Button? The ‘Done’ button saves whatever configurations or changes you make within the simulated environment and returns the item to the main window.

What is the function of the ‘Incomplete’ checkbox? The ‘Incomplete’ checkbox marks or flags an item as incomplete so that you may edit that item at the end of the exam. You may click the ‘Review Incomplete’ button on the review screen at the end of the exam to review all the items marked ‘Incomplete’ in a sequential order, or you may double-click a single item marked ‘Incomplete’ to review that item from the review screen at the end of the exam.

What happens if I launch a simulated environment, do not perform any configurations, click the ‘Done’ button, and move to another item? Is it marked incomplete?

No, the item is saved, and it does not appear as an incomplete item unless you mark it as incomplete using the ‘Incomplete’ checkbox in the floating window.

Question Answer

How can I speed up the loading of items during the exam? There is no way to speed up the loading of items. The simulation items are large and require a short but noticeable period to load. When you notice that an item is loading, please do not interact with the item until it is fully loaded. If you continuously click the ‘Done,’ ‘Next’ or any other buttons while an item is loading or while the state of an item is being saved, this could delay the processing time, which will, in turn, cause a longer waiting time for you. If you click a button continuously for a very long period, you may cause your exam to crash. Citrix suggests that candidates refrain from clicking buttons when the exam is loading items or saving configurations.

What should I do when the exam screen looks blank? When the exam screen goes blank, do not touch the mouse or keyboard for a few seconds, and the exam will load/reload. The exam screen may go blank for a few milliseconds when navigating from one item to another because the exam is trying to load the new or next item. The exam screen may also go blank when it is saving certain configurations. However, if the exam screen goes blank for more than 20 seconds on any given instance, please contact the test center administrator.

How do I know how much time I have remaining to complete the exam? In the exam, there is a ‘Time Remaining’ clock. However, the clock is only available from the main window. You can use the Alt + Tab keys to toggle between the simulated environment and the main window in order to view the ‘Time Remaining’ clock.

What happens if I miss only one configuration step? Citrix worked with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to identify critical configuration steps for each of the simulation items on the exam. Critical configuration steps are those steps that, if not configured properly, would result in the task required not being completed at all, not even partially. If you miss one of those critical steps, you could lose all the points for that item. However, if you miss some of the non-critical steps, you may still get some points for the other steps you configured or answered correctly.

Question Answer

How many steps can I miss before failing an item? You could fail an item by missing one or several steps depending on the nature of the step or steps you miss. Some steps are considered critical, and as such, missing a critical step could result in partial credit or no credit at all. However, candidates could miss one or several non-critical steps and still receive partial credit depending on the item.

How do I know if the simulation is functioning correctly? If the navigational buttons are responding correctly, the simulated environment is launching correctly and all the icons in the wizard or console are displaying correctly as well, then the simulation is working.

Note: If you are trying to configure something and you notice that the simulation is not allowing you to configure as you would like, STOP, re-read the scenario and tasks and try to configure the item again.

What should I do if I cannot find what I am looking for within the simulated environment?

Everything you need to address the full-screen items on the exam are provided in the scenarios and in the simulated environments of those items. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please go back and re-read the scenario. If you are convinced that there is a problem, please use the ‘Comment’ button and comment on the problem.

Can I explore in the simulated environment, and will I be penalized for doing so?

Yes, you can explore the simulated environment. And no, you will not be penalized by any means for exploring the environment.

Will I be penalized for doing more than is requested to answer a particular item?

No, you will not be penalized for doing more than is required; however, Citrix advises that you do not “over configure” any settings, as this will not give you extra credit and could result in errors, which could decrease your score.

Appendix: Practice

Introduction

Exam-takers should refer to the objectives listed in the “Sections, Objectives, Examples and References” section of this guide in order to determine which topics will be on the exam and examples of topics for each objective.

For example, if the objective reads, "Identify the appropriate plug-in to use," exam-takers should expect to see:• A "scenario describing the need to install a specific XenApp Plug-in"

Scenario: XenDesktop was recently implemented in an environment. A Citrix Administrator in the environment needs to tell the end users which Citrix Receiver type to install in order to access their XenDesktop resources. The end users in the environment will need to access hosted applications through Receiver for Web.

• A question that requires you to "determine which Citrix Receiver type to install" based on the scenario

Which Citrix Receiver type should the administrator instruct the end users to install?

The objectives for this exam were developed by Exam Project Managers and subject matter experts based on identified tasks that relate to building,testing and rolling out a Citrix XenDesktop 7.6 solution. The number of questions written for each objective relates directly to the importance of that objective as it relates to building, testing and rolling out, and is proportional to how frequently that task is performed.

32

Sample Question 1

Scenario: A Citrix Engineer needs to implement XenDesktop with high availability in a single datacenter. The engineer must ensure that no manual intervention is necessary if one of the Delivery Controllers is unavailable.

How should the engineer deploy the Delivery Controllers?

A. On the first Delivery Controller, create a new site. Repeat this step for the second Delivery Controller. Create an Active Directory service record.

B. On the first Delivery Controller, create a new site. On the secondary Delivery Controller, select 'Connect this Delivery Controller to an existing site'.

C. On the first Delivery Controller, create a new site. On the second Delivery Controller, install XenDesktop and select the previously created site database.

D. On the first Delivery Controller, create a new site. Repeat this step for the second Delivery Controller. Use NetScaler to load balance the Delivery Controllers.
