BCFP 8 GB exam

Hello Everyone,

I want to appear for the BCFP exam (8 GB/s) sometime in the month of May. However i have some questions on this!!!

1) Is the 4 GB exam still valid?

2) Except the BCFP nutshell doc, is there any other material that needs to be referred? I was able to take the self assessment CFP272.

3) What percentage of 4 GB switches will be covered in this exam?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Tony.

Hi Tony,

Hope following response helps,

1) Is the 4 GB exam still valid?

>> NO, only the BCFP 8Gbit.

2) Except the BCFP nutshell doc, is there any other material that needs to be referred? I was able to take the self assessment CFP272.

>> CFP 272 and BCFP in a Nutshell http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/certification_study_tools/8G-BCFP-090408.pdf 

3) What percentage of 4 GB switches will be covered in this exam?

>> I believe most of the BCFP exam is 8Gbit based.

Thanks

Venkatesh

Thanks Venkatesh!!

Thats exactly what i am concerned about. I had worked with almost all 4 GB switches but still not on any of the 8 GB switches.

Regards,

Tony.
