I've purchased access to Excel 2003 sample exams from 2 sites.  

First, from MeasureUp.  This was 66 questions that I access via Windows Server.
The questions require that I fill in the how to blanks (step by step).

Then, I heard folks swearing about the value of hotcerts so - after confirming with them that they had an Excel 2003 Expert exam - I registered, but the test they are offering me is all multiple choice.  

From what I've read, the Expert test is not multiple choice.

Any guidance you can provide on the Excel 2003 Expert certification ?

"From what you've read the exam is not multiple choice."  That's an understatement.  The exams are "live", meaning you appear to be working on Excel, with a pane below Excel for the questions. So, it is not knowledge based, but skill based.
You may want to try a simpler MOS exam before you tackle Excel expert.  After I took my first MOS exam, I found it easier to study for, and to take, my next exam.

Jeff,

Thanks for your input.

If I understand you correctly, you recommend that I take the Specialist level exam then take the Expert level exam.

Is that what you suggest?


AND, what about Hotcerts?
The reason I registered with Hotcerts was to get an Excel 2003 Expert level exam, but it dosen't seem to have the sample exam I really needed/wanted.  They told me that the 2002 exam was the same as the 2003 exam.  But as I said, that is a multiple choice test.
 
Am I missing something?  

Where do I get a 2003 Expert sample exam?

I haven't used computer based practice exams myself.  But the books I have been using have practice questions for each chapter, and these are pretty close to the actual exams.

Exam questions are multi-part, working on the same object.  So, you would see a spreadsheet, and at the bottom of the screen there would be 2 or 3 tasks to perform on it.  
***Beware*** Sometimes you will need to scroll the question screen to see all the questions!  Always make sure you have done everything asked!

Questions typically run as follows:

1.  Record a macro called BoldItalic which formats text bold and italic.
2.  Run this macro on x y or z.
3.  Add this macro to the x y or z toolbar.

If you make a mistake and want to start the set again, you can click restart.  You then do the set again without any penalty except time lost.  When you are done, click the done button (whatever it's called).

Make sure you read all of the questions carefully.  Do each step called for.  Re-read the question to make sure you didn't miss anything.  Only move on when you are certain you didn't miss anything.

Hope this helps.

Jeff,

Thanks for your expert guidance.

Actually, the process you describe is the process used on the MeasureUp practice test I purchased.

I've also gone through all the Expert chapters of the Benchmark Series Excel 2003 Specialist and Expert text book - from EMC Paradigm publishers.

Do you have any other recommendations as the where I might get some more practice exercises?

Thanks,

Matt
