On the breakdown which shows the high level topics and the associated % they make up of the exam, are the items shown the only ones that will be on the exam for that section? For example for Business Architect Essentials 8, Information Exchange makes up 10% of the exam and shows the 2 bullets below it- Creating data types and Managing data views and data pages; refresh strategies.
In the actual course, there are other items under the Information Exchange header such as how to visualize data with Integration designer. Does this mean this section won't be on the exam so I shouldn't spend much time learning it?
Postings of this type are why I am very skeptical of vendor certifications. When it becomes all about passing an exam, and not about being a qualified professional developer, everyone loses. I've seen exams degenerate into evaluating obscure code that I would be fired for writing.
