Question on Core Certification Exam

Highlighted
7 - Meteor

Hi All,

 

I just completed my first attempt at the Core Certification exam. According to the prep course we were not supposed to have to download any data sets for the core exam. However, there were at least 3 that I had to download the excel data set to be able to answer the question. Is this supposed to happen? If so, is there somewhere we can download the data sets before the exam? Other wise it takes up my exam time to down load & view the data sets on my work computer. Please advise. 

 

Thanks!

Kelly

@kvoelker I don't think you will find those datasets outside of the exam. I believe everyone goes through the same process. Everyone has to download the dataset and view them just like you did.

Hi @kvoelker 

 

As Digan mentioned, you will always need to download the data sets during the exam. What I would advise in your scenario is, at the beginning of the exam to quickly skip through the questions to those with the data sets within them and start the downloads at the start. This should allow you to complete the remaining questions whilst those files download, then you are able to go back to these questions at the end. Good luck!

Hi!

 

Can you please tell me how can I go back to a question in the core certification without losing too much time? 

I mean how can I go back to a specific question without going one by one ? 

 

Thank you in advance

Please, I have a little problem, I would be thankful if you could help me.

I failed my first attempt of the core certification on the 27th february 2020, and I waited 7 days to try again. But, today I cannot subcribe to the core certification again and they keep showing me the message that I can do my second attempt on the "03-05-2020 01:03 PM".

Now, it is 02:28 PM and still cant open my exam!

It's 1:03 PM in a different time zone to you, but I'm not sure which time zone.  Probably Boulder in Colarado, so you might have to wait another few hours.  Best of luck with the exam!
