    I just passed this exam about an hour ago. And, after passing it, I read the comments that it was open-book, so I could have scored higher had I known that. But, a pass is a pass, so I'm not going to worry about it. Now, on to Fundamentals II and the Splunk Power User certification.
    WGU BS - Network Operations and Security Estimated completion: November 2019
    Remaining courses: C268 (OA), C846 (ITIL), C175 (OA), C851 (Linux Essentials), C779 (CIW Site Dev Associate), C768 (OA), C246 (CCENT), C247 (CCNA-R&S), C917 (CCDA), C176 (Project+), C849 (Cloud Essentials), C299 (CCNA-SEC), C850 (OA), C769 (Capstone)

    I have taken all the classes up through Architecting Splunk deployments, I have gotten the email to take the sys admin exam, so I am just brushing up on the Data Admin class before i take it, I hear it is 80% of the exam. but the power user exam was very hard lots of syntax questions. After I pass the Sys Admin cert, I will be taking the Implementation Fundamentals exam then I will be an Accredited Splunk Service engineer, after that I will be going to the Core Implementation class, then the Core Implementation exam, Then i will get Accredited Splunk Core Implementation cert, then will be the Consultants Fundamentals Course then the exam then finally I will get my Splunk Consultant 1 cert. and hopefully be done, I feel like i have been to college again!! ha!

    It was harder than expected and I don't think the class prepared you for everything that was on the test. I bought a Udemy course and took that and practiced more on my own. A tip someone gave me about Splunk courses is that if they reference more material available in another place you should read it. Most courses aren't like that. I'm going to try that when I go on to Power User next. Best of Luck!

I signed up for a Splunk Udemy class too which seems fairly good so far.

    @McxRisley what do you think of the Power User course?
    Which Udemy class did you go with? Did it help you pass?

    Just wanted to throw this in here, but Splunk has a program offering the Fundamentals 1 and 2 courses to veterans for free. You get 30 days for each part.

    https://workplus.splunk.com/veterans

    I haven't actually started mine yet, it's just sitting there until I finish up some other training. But I'm looking forward to working through it.

    Did you take the User 6.x certification exam? Noticed Fundamentals are for 7.x but the exam seems to be 6.x?

    The next exam coming up is the Splunk Certified Power User. Our company has the subscription, so it is "free" for us to take the course and the exam.

    Update (4/15/201: Passed Certified Power User exam today. Had about 10 min left when finishing last question. There were some tricky questions in the beginning (similar to the User exam) and got easier towards the end.

    Quick note to make sure those interested in Splunk certs are aware that the cert program is being relaunched in August and exams are moving to Pearson.

    I saw that. That will make a few people unhappy. It looks like all previously passed exams will be nullified. I'm glad I only have my User so far.

    Yeeaaaaahhhhh.... There's a reddit post from a Splunk employee looking for feedback on this new model and the responses are pretty damning. This is definitely not a good idea on Splunk's part. We'll see if they actually go through with it...

    New certification program is fine. Cancelling validity of certifications already earned by people is a very bad decision.

    Exactly. This where Splunk will shoot themselves in the foot. Cancelling peoples certs who just spent over 10K getting their architect level 1 and 2 certs is a GIANT slap in the face. This will be the downfall of Splunk if they go through with this. They aren't the only SIEM in town...

    My itty bity splunk certified user is going bye bye?😮lol. I didnt realize that the new certs will practically make existing ones null and void.

    Pointless for me to do the the Splunk Certified Power User in the current format even if it is for free. Will be void in a month.

    We do certifications to learn the material so we can get better jobs and do our jobs better. The cert on your resume only gets you a first-round interview; it's the cert knowledge in your head that allows you to keep your job.

    Do certifications for the knowledge, not the paper.

    Agreed. I should have clarified. Knowledge wise it is still good information to learn.
