New resources let you learn at your own pace for HPE Certifications


HPE20180604015_1600_0_72_RGB.jpgStudy for CertificationsThe ability to study for HPE exams using self-study materials is becoming increasingly popular with our learners. The benefits are not hard to see. Learn at your own pace when it’s convenient to you, and the ability to spend extra time focusing on areas and topics that you may be weak in, are just a couple of examples.

To help meet the demand for more certification self-study materials, we are growing the number of resources available to learners with new Study Guides, Self-Directed Labs, and Practice Tests, and have created an easy look-up tool to locate those resources here. To date, we have nineteen certifications, including Aruba, that are supported by these new self-directed learning materials. There is also a link at the bottom of the page to the complete list of all HPE certifications plus links to help you find a relevant training or exam.

Here is a quick overview of the HPE certification self-study resources:

Study Guides

These are organized along the lines of exam topics and objectives and are designed to help you study for the certification exam. Chapters can also be studied independently when preparing for certification. They also contain practice tests. Note that some certifications also offer standalone practice tests.

Practice Tests

HPE Press now offers the opportunity to order standalone, authorized practice tests taken directly from the HPE Press Study Guides. If you don't need the full study guide, and want to see the types of questions you will see on the exam, these practice tests are for you. They also contain explanations for why answer options are either correct or incorrect.

Self-Directed Labs

These labs give you practical experience with deploying and configuring a variety of HPE technologies including Networking, Servers and Storage. These detailed and in-depth lab exercises are designed to deliver the hands-on experience and knowledge required to prepare for the HPE certification exam.
