Microsoft Excel Certification - Gmetrix

What is Gmetrix?

Gmetrix is a program that allows you to practice taking Microsoft Office Specialist certification exams. Using Gmetrix, and fulfilling the requirements regarding Gmetrix, is the greatest predictor of success on the actual exam. Our pass rate for students who properly utilize Gmetrix is over 95%.

Gmetrix is accessed through Whitman's Remote Desktop by logging in with your netID + associated password and selecting Whitman Excel Cert Prep.

Why is it important, and what should I know about it?

Gmetrix allows you to familiarize yourself with the testing software and overall experience. You can take each practice exam an unlimited number of times.

Gmetrix has two modes: Training, and Testing. The difference is that Training mode provides step-by-step help for each test question, with no time limit, while Testing mode simulates the test as closely as possible: there is a time limit, a specific number of questions, and no help.

What is my goal?

Your goal is to score 800 (80%) or better on five different exams in Testing mode.

When you've completed this goal, you're ready to register for the actual exam.
