Pre Exam Notes
- Kryterion Sentinel software (Windows/Mac) installation requires administrator rights
- Kyterion system check - do this at least a day before to be on the safe side
- No breaks during two hour exam
- Do the practice exam to build some confidence
- (Try and) get a good nights sleep before the exam
- The exam is multiple choice, so work out the wrong answers first!!
Post Exam Notes
- Online Kryterion exams still suck - Admin permissions for the entire machine, seriously?
- Waiting for confirmation of the exam result is now 10 days!!
- Swag stock limitations
- Still no feedback beyond pass/fail (Grrr!)
- 45 Questions
Google Cloud do not indicate the pass mark for the exam, but I would assume its somewhere greater than 70%.
I typically aim to be confident on 80% (i.e. 36/45) of the questions.
Depending on what type of person you are the above calculation may be of some use.
I think about the exam result in terms of how many answers I can afford to
Once you have read the exam overview, it should be clear this exam is meant to cover the majority of security product areas in GCP.
|Management||IAM and admin|
|Operations||Monitoring and Logging|
|CI/CD||Cloud Build, Artifact Registry|
