This document discusses exams in Cloud Academy. Exams are available individual and enterprise accounts, outside of the free trial period.
What Is an Exam
An exam is a tool to check your knowledge of a topic. Exams are an effective way to assess your skills in a particular focus area. Exams can help you understand critical areas to invest in training.
Though Cloud Academy does not issue certifications directly, Cloud Academy exams in the Certification category are designed to mimic the certification exams, with the same areas of emphasis, number of questions, and time allotted to complete each exam. Most exams present you with questions from a larger pool of questions. You can review your exam results to help you prepare for your certification test.
Tip: Consider re-taking exams, even exams that you pass, so that you can be exposed to more of the questions and further solidify your knowledge.
At the end of each exam, your Skill Profile shows your progress. Check this article for information about how Skill Profile scoring works. If you begin an exam and then decide you don't want the results to affect your Skill Profile, you can discard the exam before you submit it.
