There are over 350 questions spanning 100 data modeling categories in the DMC exam, where one must demonstrate proficiency, with one question randomly chosen from each of these 100 categories (so 100 questions total will be asked during the exam). The 100 categories can be generalized into these ten data modeling topics:

 

  1. Syntax
  2. Components (entities, relationships, attributes, keys, domains, subtypes)
  3. Process and approach
  4. Conceptual, logical, and physical
  5. Relational and dimensional
  6. Notations
  7. Abstraction
  8. Naming standards
  9. Definitions
  10. Best practices and pitfalls

 

The challenging 90 minute DMC exam requires correctly answering at least 90 out of 100 multiple choice questions. Each question needs to be answered quickly and having six possible choices for each question reduces the chances of guessing correctly. The DMC is not just recognition you can data model in any industry anywhere in the world, it also facilitates the recruiter or human resources professional’s search for finding someone who knows how to design robust data models that meet the current and anticipated requirements of the business.
