To help users get the most out of the Google Analytics platform, Google launched a certification program. Here we help readers find a practice test Google Analytics users can take to prepare for the certification exam.
About the Google Analytics Certification
Google provides the Google Analytics certification program to encourage IT workers to become highly proficient with the Google product. By developing a thorough working knowledge of Google Analytics, workers will be more successful and presumably spend more money purchasing Google services. In exchange for their efforts learning the product, Google offers an Individual Qualification (IQ) credential that boosts workers' resumes and employability.
As part of the learning process, Google offers a free online course at its Conversion University that helps students acquire knowledge about the analytics platform. After completing the course, students can take the certification test. Those who pass receive a certificate and instantly become a more valuable asset to their employers.
Here we list two places where a practice test Google Analytics students can be found, but only one of them seems to be capable of offering Google Analytics students a valuable experience. Still, readers should try the resources at both sites listed here to gain additional valuable experience that will help students pass Google's proficiency test.
WizIQ is an online learning site that helps its users teach and learn. At this website, users can take the Online Google Analytics Course - Pre-assessment Test that will help them understand their current state of knowledge about the Google Analytics program.
Here, two practice tests are available. Although users may question the value of each one, the good thing is that the tests here are free, allowing users to boost their readiness for the official Google exam.
The iPassExam website provides several hundred practice exam questions that can help users make sure they know enough to pass the official Google exam before they log in to the Google Testing Center.
According to the iPass Exam website, exam questions are organized in four sections;
