This program consists of a technical exam at a product/version [and platform] level that validates that the successful candidate has important knowledge and skills necessary to plan, install, configure, and maintain a data protection environment using NetBackup version 6.5 and below on the UNIX or Windows platforms.

Ok excuse me for my English. Do you have the question to the test 250-365 please provide to me to study.

Mindaugas Laucius's picture
No I didn't memorize any questions. And even If I would, I'm not allowed to share this information. It is forbidden!!!
I don't see the point to study questions, I would recommend to study NetBackup material and practice.

Hi All,

Just an inquiry, do it require an Intructor-LED training to take the NBU 6.5 exam?

Thanks in Advance,

From the Certification & Training Paths areas:

To assist in preparation for the certification exams, candidates are strongly encouraged to attend training course(s) available through Symantec, in addition to meeting any necessary prerequisites, on-the-job experience, and study. Be cautioned that, attendance in a training course does not guarantee passage of a certification exam.

At the end of the day, the training courses do not by necessity cover everything to the depth required by actual on-the-job experience. You will (eventually) learn more through the latter!

Good Luck.
