1.1 Purpose of
Exam
This document provides a list of exam objectives for the 1Y1-A15
Engineering a Citrix Virtualization Solution (with simulations) exam and a
list of resources that will help exam-takers prepare for items associated with
these objectives. This document outlines, at a high level, topics that are
covered on this exam and instructions on how to obtain information
pertaining to these topics. Exam-takers should read this document carefully
before attempting this exam.

skills necessary to interpret a design, fine tune it if necessary, manage an
implementation project plan, build, roll out and document the setup of a
Citrix virtualization solution.
1.2 Number of

contains 83 traditional items (i.e., multiple-choice single response and
multiple response, drag and drop and point and click items).
1.3 Passing
Score
The passing score for this exam is 70% and is based on the analysis of
ratings provided by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) during the Angoff
Workshop. In order to pass the beta exam, an exam-taker must score 70%
overall on the entire exam.
1.4 Time Limit Native English speakers have 300 minutes (150 minutes for Part One and
