IBM Commerce Assessment tests and Sample tests
When preparing to take an IBM Certification test, test candidates are encouraged to study the online test information. This includes the test overview, test objectives, and test preparation recommendations.
As part of test preparation recommendations, each IBM Commerce certification test is either associated with an assessment test or a sample test. Assessment tests and sample tests are available online as a study tool to help test candidates prepare for the actual certification tests. Assessment tests and sample tests do not end in a certification credential.
- Assessment tests generally contain the same number of questions as a certification test. Instructions to access the assessment test (if available) is located on each individual test preparation web page. The test fee for assessment tests is $30 USD per attempt worldwide (for both IBM employees, and non-IBM employees).
- Sample tests contain approximately 10-15 questions, and give test candidates an idea of the types of questions that will be asked on the actual certification test. Sample tests (if available) can be found on the individual test preparation web page, and can be downloaded free of charge as a .PDF document.
