Practice Quizzes:

The practice quizzes provide students with an opportunity to experience a
testing environment that will be similar to the real thing. The quizzes are
formatted very closely to those found on the actual exam. The questions are
based on Esri sample questions, recommended course section reviews and the
author's experiences with other certification exams such as those from
Microsoft and CompTIA. 


Prerequisites and recommendations:

This class assumes students have used ArcGIS Desktop software and are
looking for a review of key features and functionality which may be included
on the certification exam. Esri recommends individuals seeking to take the
exam have at least two years of experience working with the software.


High speed internet connection and a web browser which supports HTML5 are
required to take this class. If you use the VOIP audio option, it is
recommended you have a headset with earphones and mic. If you call in it is
recommended you use a headset as well or have a mutable speaker phone.
Dial-in users will be responsible for any long distance charges associated
with attending this class. Access to ArcGIS Desktop Software is not required
to take this class though many students find it helpful.
