Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Exam-taking techniques, part of Cert Prep: SOLIDWORKS Weldments.
- [Instructor] In this movie I'd…like to talk about some exam taking techniques.…The first recommendation I have is to use dual monitors.…Most of the time, you're going to…download the testing client.…And you're going to want to put that on one screen.…And then you want to have SOLIDWORKS…running on the other screen in full screen mode.…So you can easily see what's going on…without having to switch between windows.…Or maximize and minimize.…And cram it all into one small screen.…So if you have the option, definitely…get dual monitors for taking the exams.…The next one is putting a folder…on your desktop with any relevant…information in that folder, right from the beginning.…
We have the option of downloading…some templates that I pre-created for you guys.…Definitely put those in there,…then go ahead and link SOLIDWORKS to those templates,…so you're automatically selecting…those from the beginning.…Or have the option of choosing…which template you'd like to use,…that's going to save you a lot of time.…The next thing I want to point out…
Join Gabriel Corbett as he reviews the exam requirements, along with testing techniques and tips to make more effective use of your time. He refreshes your knowledge of fundamentals such as creating and saving weldment profiles, building sketches, trimming and extending weldments, applying corner treatments, and creating end caps and gussets. He also covers advanced weldment creation, profile alignment, and weldment cut lists. Last, but not least, he reviews questions from a sample exam and provides pointers for measuring parts correctly and verifying the unit system.
