16... atleast 5-6 question were asked twice with different options and intentions. 7. 18.. So many questions on ADW. Read WBT thoroughly. EDW. 6. good number of questions on PPI and MLPPI I feel the following has to be done thoroughly to get some edge. 15. What is the advantage of centralized DW and disadvantage of physically separated data mart Statement true regarding mini batch data load Transient journal Modeling technique supported by TD What can be achieved with TASM Greatest influence over scalable parallelism Common between row processing and set processing. 14. application datamodels. Primary purpose of staging layer in enterprise data warehousing architecture. 5. 2. 3. ( things like star schema. dimensional modelling ) On a whole i would say it is a CONCEPTUAL paper both in terms of datawarehousing questions and teradata database questions. 7. 11. enterprise datamodels 3. 19. 12.

[ But 3-4 questons on same topic ] Why create NUSI over USI Difference between Application data model and enterprise data model(2 questions) Why USI over NUSI Benefits of HOT standby node . 6. 8. 1. 13.adding to that Following is my experience: 1. many questions on administrative tools . 60% OF THE QUESTIONS WERE ASKED INDIRECTLY. Many question related to datawarehousing in general. 9... 4. LINE TO LINE.which tool will do what & to get this info what tool has to used kind of questions. ( this is very much required and most important thing to be done). 2. 5. 2-3 questions on Data dictionary tables. 10. 17. Benefit of automatic verses manually managed storage(2-3 questions) Two reasons a customer would create MLPPI table Active data warehouse intelligence Why rebuilding of indexes is unnecessary in TD Feature may be used for data encryption Difference between response time and throughput Primary purpose of semantic layer in enterprise data warehousing architecture. 4. too many questions on datawarehousing. Almost all questions were from the material only(WBT in particular). 2.

For me all Qs are asked from topics in WBTs only. Teradata security(Ans :LDAP.. 23.read thoroughly) 6. (but asked in indirect way ). 22. 26. Also one important point is You will not get your final score ( marks) after passing. i think u might be having it already). (In that mail he talked about some syntax Qs . 27. Naga Satya Pradeep Thanks Vinay I can not specifically think of any weird question as all Qs appeared normal only. Diff between primary key and index(Options are quite confusing and tough 4-5 Q. " 1.Mostly the questions are like that only.. 28. Teradata connection to mainframe 7. This is what has been said by the TCPP when i mailed them about my marks . MLPPI(4-5 Q on this. Centralized Vs Non centralized d/b 11. I did not get any syntax questions). 25. Datamart Vs Centralised DB . Questions on Manually Managed d/ vs automatics managed d/b 10. And you have to clear with mininum 50% in all subject areas of a certification exam besides getting overall total. (this should be more than sufficient).20. What component increases the performance of FTS(Ans: Node) 5.. Options are confusing ) 4.. RAID-1 overhead (Ans 50%) 8. Read it line by line thoroughly. These are the areas where additional studying is needed. the TCPP team does provide a "Notice of Exam Results" document that lists sections of the exam that indicate where a 50% or better score was not achieved.Single Sign On. Refer to the mail which has been circulated earlier (some one in Mumbai has compiled some questions.. 24.Password) 9. FTS(Read from WBT line by line..
