ABOUT THE 101-APPLICATION DELIVERY FUNDAMENTALS EXAM.

The 101-Application Delivery Fundamentals exam is the first exam required to

achieve Certified F5 BIG-IP Administrator status.

Successful completion of the Application Delivery Fundamentals exam

acknowledges the skills and understanding necessary for day-to-day

management of Application Delivery Networks (ADNs).

WHAT IS THE 101-APPLICATION DELIVERY FUNDAMENTALS EXAM

BLUEPRINT?

F5 Certified Exam Blueprints list all the objectives an exam has to measure,

much like a syllabus for the exam itself. The blueprint provides the detailed

breakdown of the skills and knowledge a candidate should have to pass the

exam. Blueprints can be used to identify areas for additional study, and are best

used in conjunction with the Exam Study Guides.

PREREQUISITE:

None

CREDENTIAL AWARDED:

None (prerequisite to the TMOS Administration exam)

THIS EXAM IS BASED ON V11.4.
