Friends,
I couldn't find much material/documents to prepare for Splunk Certification.
Is there anyway I can get some previous questions/scenario's that are being asked for Splunk Certification lab?

Thanks in advance

You could take a look at the description for the Architect Certification Lab

As of 16-Sep-2013, the description says

Installation and Infrastructure

- Install a search head, deployment server and indexers

- Perform a scripted installation of universal forwarders

Configuration, Collection, and Comprehension

- Deploy all specified configurations via deployment server

- Gather data from forwarders and send to multiple indexes depending on use case

- Configure and confirm index-time knowledge

- Create search time field extractions

Searching and Reporting

- Create searches and dashboards for each required use case

Since this is a practicum and not a multiple-choice test, you need to be able to do these things, not answer questions. During the exam, you will be able to access documentation and answers.splunk.com

Practice doing the tasks that you learned in class - setting up indexers, using the deployment server, creating indexes, etc.

Publishing any detailed scenario is giving too much away.
