We will be working through the certification preparation course for our Unity Certified Associate certification test over the next four weeks. Please follow the following procedure:

  • Take the quiz for the assigned chapter
  • If you score above an 80% check which questions you missed and go into the videos for the chapter and watch those sections
    • After reviewing – take the quiz again and see if you have improved.
  • If you scored below an 80% watch all the videos in the chapter and then attempt the test again.
    • If you score below an 80% review those sections and try again until you score an 80%

We will be taking quizzes every 5 chapters on set days. Make sure you are keeping up with the pace. You can work on this from home if needed.

Please do not rush through the course or repeatedly take the quizzes without following the above outlined procedures. The goal is for you to really know the material so that you can pass the certification exam. In the past our passing rate has been around 55% – this is not an easy test.

Schedule – have these goals completed by the end of the day
