Once you are on this page you will have to enter in your test page credentials, which consist of your name, your company’s name, your email address and your phone number. After you have entered in all of this information you will need to wait a few seconds while the page processes this information. A message will then pop up on the screen saying “You’ve successfully completed a test page with Windows.” At this point you will be able to go ahead and access the website of the product which you are trying to evaluate.
This whole process took me about three minutes including the time it took to write down my results in a notebook. I was very impressed with what happened to me. Not only did I complete all of the tests easily but I was also able to do them in less than one day without having to contact any assistance. So, if you are one of those people who is intimidated by taking a Microsoft exam you will want to consider these steps.
The first thing you will need to do is get a couple of good study guides. These guides will help you study well so that when you do the exam you’ll know exactly what you need to know. The reason why I recommend getting study guides is because most of them are actually pretty decent and they will walk you through each section. So, instead of reading a book you’ll actually be reading it.
After you have your study guides, it’s time to start testing. I suggest doing three kinds of tests: typing, application, and database tests. You should make sure you test each type three times, otherwise you may come up short when you have to go back and take another test for the material you skipped during the previous ones.
Here’s how I tested my typing skills: I downloaded the Learn typing with Windows Server software and installed it onto my computer. After it was installed I installed Microsoft Word and opened up the software. I quickly attempted three different online Word tests and logged into a Word account. What I got was a comprehensive battery of tests. All of the questions were identical, so I knew right away which ones I needed to review prior to taking my real life exam.
The next one was the application test. Again I went into a local retail store to buy the software. This time I wanted to buy a copy of MS Access so I could test my knowledge with an actual application. Here too I was able to purchase a license and test my knowledge on various scenarios in Access.
Hopefully you’re going to get similar results. There are definitely some other subjects that are more difficult than Access but with these tests I did not fail even once! If you can do one or two of these things you are going to be set for great success when you go for your next exam.
