Reviewing Core exam objectives, observing a sample exam question
- [Voiceover] Let's talk about the exam format…and the time allotment.…For the Microsoft Office Specialist exams,…the time allotment is 50 minutes.…You should be able to complete…the Access 2013 MOS exam in 40 minutes or less.…That will give you 10 minutes to go back and review…all the tasks that you completed…to make sure you did them correctly,…and then you can compare your document with the sample file…that you'll see at the end of the exam.…There will be 20 to 25 tasks on the exam.…
It is a project-based exam, which means…it doesn't matter how you complete the tasks,…just that, in the end, your finished document…looks comparable to the sample final document.…For most of the tasks, you'll have the opportunity…to work on a document in the database…that's already been created for you.…You may be asked to create a table by importing data…from a file, and then create a query, form or report…based on that new data.…It is a pass/fail exam.…To pass you must have a score of at least 700,…and it is 700 out of a possible 1,000 points.…
