Lotus Exam 520 is offline -- when will it be back?
Lotus Exam 520 is "offline" until late March 2003, I am told by the testing company. They do not know why. Is this due to the re-alignment of Lotus/IBM/Tivoli testing? How can I find out if the test objectives will change? I tried to schedule the exam and have spent the last week studying the existing material, only to find out now that exam 520 is in some sort of limbo for unknown reasons. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.
The objectives of the exam are not changing. A CLP reported to us that a copy of exam 520 with the correct answers was available on an Internet exam cheat site. We found pockets of people who were getting 100% in less than 7 minutes -- so we knew people had found this. Our only choice was to remove the exam and replace it. We did not communicate these details while waiting to get the exam removed from that site. It was finally removed. The new exam, which covers the same objectives, will be available March 14. Sorry for the inconvenience.
