If you’ve recently passed your Google AdWords Fundamentals Exam, you’re probably preparing to move on to take the Google AdWords Advanced Search Exam. As a test that is slightly more difficult than the Fundamentals Exam, the Advanced Search Exam can help you prove your expertise in Google AdWords.

But if you want to pass your exam on the first try, you will want to be prepared. Here are some of our best tips on passing the exam.

About the Google AdWords Advanced Search Exam

Knowing the basic details of the exam is crucial for understanding what you’re getting into before the test begins. For the Google AdWords Advanced Search Exam, you will have 120 minutes to answer 98 multiple choice questions. In order to pass, you need to get above 80% of them right. However, you are able to use your notes or study materials during the exam.

If you do not pass the exam on your first try, you must wait seven days before you can retake the exam. Unfortunately, you will be required to pay the $50 fee again if you need to retake the test, so it is important to be properly prepared before beginning.

Once you pass, the certification is valid for one full year.

Tips for Passing the Exam

When you’re taking the test, keep in mind that you may be asked questions that were on the Fundamentals Exam. Because it is a comprehensive test, you will want to spend some time reviewing past topics and information.

You should also be sure you’re studying with accurate materials. Because blogs or other untrustworthy sources may provide incorrect information, you should use Google’s own resources first and foremost. You should also use the Google Study Guides when preparing for your exam.

Finally, make sure you spend time reading each question and the potential answers. While you may think you know the answer right away, rushing or not fully understanding what is being asked of you is an easy way to fail the test, even if you know all your information.

With the proper preparation and understanding of what is on the Google AdWords Advanced Search Exam, you can pass and become certified.
