  • Tutors do not teach class material. If you have missed a class, contact your instructor. 
  • Tutors cannot assist with quizzes and tests in any form, including take-home quizzes and tests.

MOS Certification Tips!!!

I am an experienced MOS Test taker (2010, 2013, 2016, 2019--all of them)  LOL

What was mentioned on the Gmetrix video is exactly what I do on the MOS test.  Please remember the following:

  1. Bring your Certiport username and password with you to the “at home” MOS test.  If you do not have this information, go to certiport.com and register.
  2. Be at least 5 minutes early for the MOS test.
  3. Remember to breathe during the MOS test.
  4. Read all the directions for the MOS test.  I try to breathe deeply when I read the MOS test directions.  When you get to the “take the test part”, take another deep breath, think positive thoughts, and “Go!”
  5. If you do not know the answer within two clicks of the Ribbon tabs, please mark the project tab “For Review” and come back to it later.
  6. If you know the answer, do it immediately.  Do EXACTLY what the project task asks for (do not think, do not “guess”, do not “add more.”) Mark it “Completed” and never look at it again.
  7. When you get to the “Summary” page, look at the “Mark for Review” Project tasks.  Again, follow steps 5 and 6. Do the easiest project tasks first, the medium project tasks second, the hard project tasks three, and the “Hail Mary” project tasks last.  Please complete as much of the “Hail Mary” project tasks as possible as you will get points for what you complete.  If you cannot find the answer to the “Hail Mary” project task try the “File tab” and “Options”.  (Just my procedure.)  LOL
  8. The passing score is 700/1000 points.  When you get to the end of your MOS test, you will have to decide which points you want to “give the MOS test”.   You will have 300 points to give away.  If you cannot answer a question, go on to the questions you can answer.  Most students will NOT take this test in a linear fashion.  Most students (your instructor included) will jump around on this test.  Taking the MOS test is about Test Time Management and Test Question Management.
  9. If you completed all the class assignments and reviewed the Gmetrix test you are prepared to take the MOS test.  Just BELIEVE in yourself because you COMPLETED the assignments and the Gmetrix testing tests.  You have done all that you can.   YOU CAN DO IT!
  10. If you do not pass the MOS test, it is not the end of the world.  Please remember to sign up for the retake MOS test and complete it within “a week” of the first MOS test date.  Review Gmetrix again and review any concepts you think you missed on the 1st MOS test utilizing your textbook projects.  I have had a student that scored 125/1000 on her first MOS test and on the retake MOS test score “900/1000”   (Woo Hoo!)  YOU CAN DO IT!  Don’t Quit!  Try it AGAIN with the retake MOS test!  You can pass the retake test with 700!

I hope this reply helps.

Sincerely,

Teresa
