The 522 exam ("Deploying Domino Applications") is an exam that looks at your knowledge of Notes databases from an ADMINISTRATORS perspective, rather than a developers perspective. Your level of knowledge of programming languages for this exam is not tested. I would recommend that you visit the Lotus certification page and download the exam guide: http://www.lotus.com/certification You will find that this exam measures your database competencies from a maintenance, participation and implementation viewpoint. You will need to know which server tasks are involved in the distribution and maintenance of domino databases, what their options are and how they work. This outline is explained in the exam guide, along with the competencies measured.
