    If you work with Nokia's on a regular basis and have done for some time, and have basic routing knowledge then its embarrasing if you don't pass. (Just my opinion so don't worry)

    Understand Routing Priority ie Dynamic vs Static Routing precedence etc.
    Also the management and upgrade process
    There will be some Check Point questions but not many.
    Basic configuration
    Some CLI
    Some questions on HA.
    Some Sales type questions.

    Overall I don't think it is hard at all providing you work with them, if going in cold then possibly struggle with some of the questions.

    Redid my exam on Thursday and it has certainly changed since I last did this.

    Items to learn:

    CLI - not just the commands but also the expressions after the command as well.

    IPSO - learn which partitions are important and what each partition is used for. Also where commands are stored, which are root partitions. Also study the backup process.

    Routing - I got a fair bit about Dynamic Routing, also which routing protocols you can get on IPSO, which free, which chargeable.

    Authentication - Don't just learn the command, also learn the process that goes on in the background. Look at the RADIUS configuration in particular.
