"managing the worksheet enviornment" Excel 2010 exam 77-882 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.  I have recently passed the Word 2010 exam 77-881.  I have had two failed attempts at the Excel 2010 77-882.  My last attempt I felt that I accuratly performed all tasks with success.  My final score was 609.  The exam, as you know, covers eight differnt topics within the program. I have been unsuccessful at being able to score ANY points in the "managing the worksheet enviornment" topic section.  I recieved 0% in this topic section.  I have not been able to find any resources that can help me with this problem.  I thought about giving up. I plan to also certify in Access 2010, and Powerpoint 2010 in the next three months.  I have never given up on anything, and I cant start now. I have rescheduled to take the Excel 2010 77-882 exam for a third time in about three weeks from now.  If you can offer me any insight or help with this "managing the worksheet enviornment" topic, i would greatly apperciate it.

    Thank You.

  • Hi Amanda,

    Sorry to hear you did not pass the exam. Readin the rest of the post i know you will pass the third time. You were close. For preparation i used the inside out series (books). I had a blogpost about this book which you can find here furthermore i installed the ribbon hero add-in as well. This nifty tool lets you practice with all the office application and give really good tips. I also did a post about the ribbon hero add in (which you can install when done) you can find this also in my blog under 'tools'.

    Take a look at the mos certifcation section maybe it can help you a bit.
