Good knowledge on Excel services and UDF's and related object model
Understand Search configurations, settings and related object model.
Understanding of IRM policies.
Portal template.
Some understanding on Audience and User profile.

What areas are the most focussed in the exam?
Does it involve lot of coding?
I dont have hands on exp with BDC, and excel services... do you think its fine if I just study from the two guides you mentioned?
