Welcome to the 302 – F5 Certified Technology Specialist, GTM compiled Study Guide. The purpose of this
guide is to help you prepare for the 302 – F5 Certified Technology Specialist, GTM exam. The contents of this
document are based on the 302 – F5 Certified Technology Specialist, GTM Blueprint.
This study guide provides students with some of the basic foundational knowledge required to pass
This study guide is a collection of information and therefore not a completely original work. The
majority of the information is compiled from F5 sources that are located on the Internet. All of the information
locations are referenced at the top of each topic instead of in an Appendix of this document. This was done to
help the reader access the referenced information easier without having to search through a formal appendix.
This guide also references the same books as the exam Resource Guide for each topic when applicable for
consistency. Those books are a great source of information on DNS and Global Traffic Manger (GTM).
F5 Networks provides the 302 – F5 Certified Technology Specialist, GTM Study Guide as a resource. The
Study Guide is a list of reading material that will help any student build a broad base of general knowledge
that can assist in not only their exam success but also in becoming a well-rounded systems engineer. The
Study Guide will be available to the candidate once they are qualified for the GTM Specialist exam.
Taking certified F5 GTM training, such as Configuring BIG-IP GTM v11: Global Traffic Manager, will surely
help with the topics of this exam but does not teach directly to the exam content. Hands on administrative
experience with the BIG-IP platform licensed with GTM will reinforce many of the topics contained in the
302 – F5 Certified Technology Specialist, GTM exam.
The F5 Certified BIG-IP Administrator (F5-CA), which is made up of the 101 – Application Delivery
Fundamentals and 201 – TMOS Administration exams, stand as a pre-requisite to this exam.
