Today I had the opportunity to take the 2007 Microsoft Office Specialist Test for Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. Amazingly enough you really can’t find a study guide for the 2007 test at all. There are tons of guides for 2010 and 2013. Needless to say I had to wing it. I thought I would have done better at the Excel test than I did but I will say in my defense there about 30+ people in the room with me along with 2 children acting like they were cats. The ran around the room making cat noises! Anyways, I did well on the test but not enough to pass that one. I went on to the Word test and blew that one out of the water. That being said I’m not sure what the average score is on that test but I think making a 100% in 4 of the 6 areas isn’t too shabby! I admit, I expected the Word test to be a bit more difficult than it was. Not one question on mail merging, etc. After Word I moved on to PowerPoint. I didn’t do as well as I did on the Word test but I did score enough to pass that one as well. Finally, I tried to test on Outlook. Did you notice that I used the word “tried”. The computer crashed 4 times and was not able to take that test. I actually thought I might have done well as that test as well. Maybe next time. With these two test under my belt I’m crossing off my “knowledge/software to be certified in” bucket list! Next stop… the Georgia Business Education GACE! I only have 14 days until that test. Wish me luck!!!
