IBM Collaboration Solutions Assessment 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, most IBM Collaboration Solutions certification tests are associated with an assessment test. Assessment tests are available via the Prime System for 30 USD (or equivalent) as a tool to help test candidates ascertain if they are prepared for the applicable certification exam.

Assessment tests can be taken anywhere there is an internet connection. They are developed by the same individuals who wrote the actual exam, using the same competencies. Each assessment test has the same amount of questions and gives candidates the same amount of time as the applicable certification exam.
