Effective from 20th of November, 2014, Google Analytics (GAIQ) certification is available for free..!!
Being a certified professional is always an advantage. Certification shows that the person is capable enough to handle the business or technical scenarios. It also adds value to your Resume. Here are the 3 simple steps to be followed if you want to know how to pass Google Analytics, GAIQ certification.
1. To Pass GAIQ –Do not Search for Answers
This is one of the most common mistakes that most of my friends do. We are so used to ‘Google’ for answers.
Be known that Google never lets anyone know the right answers for the questions that were asked. A person can only guess the right answers. If anyone claims that he/she has cleared the certification, we never know which were the right answers and which were the wrong. I have literally seen many websites claiming right answers for the questions with a screen shot but they are not!!
Besides, being certified should mean something to you as well as the one who considers it. What is the point of being certified by wrong means? When the times comes, you will have no idea as to how to handle the technical or business scenario. If you plan on cheating the world, why not use ‘Photoshop‘ ? Prepare a fake certificate then!! It is as good as clearing the GAIQ exam with the help of external source..!
Ok, we know what shouldn’t be done. So, what to do to pass Google Analytics exam then? Read on…..
