Regarding Certification Exams - Pass %

Hi, This question may have been asked by many people before. Recently I passed the basics test. Planning to take the other ones. My question is regarding what is the percentage of questions that need to be correct. I think in the basics test, It is 75%. Is it the same for other tests.?

Thanks

Hi,
I can say that Thorough reading of Teradata Manuals is enogh to pass the first 3 exams. however,Teradata recommends work experience of minimum 12 months before taking the exams.

I used the manuals from Tera-Tom (Tom Coffing) and passed all the exams, with flying colours. I also used the practise exams on the Teradata and coffingdw.com sites.
