Tips for taking this exam

This exam assesses whether you have the knowledge and skills that a HPEAC Structured Data Manager professional requires on the job. Therefore, some test items present a scenario, which outlines a particular environment or problem.

Take the time to read the entire question and consider all of the options carefully before you answer. If the question indicates that it features an exhibit, study the exhibit and reread the question. Make sure to select the answer that correctly responds to the question that is asked — not simply an answer that includes some correct information. If the question asks for more than one answer, remember to select each correct answer. You will not receive partial credit for a partially correct answer.
