  • Free iPassExam Test Prep Software (12 Month License)

iPassExam has both Question Banks and Sample papers. Both are designed to address specific needs of your learning experience.

Question Banks: The iPassExam question banks contain hundreds of questions categorised to match the official Adobe ACA syllabus. When working in Question Bank mode your response gets immediately marked so you can see if you selected the correct option. If your response was incorrect you will be shown the correct option plus you will be presented with an explanation that provides additional detail on the topic addressed in the question. In addition you will be presented with a "peer response" graph that gives you a visual presentation of how your peers chose to answer the question.

Sample Paper: The "Mock Exam" is a simulation of the actual exam. This resource should be completed after completing the question bank to test if your ready for the actual ACE exam. All the questions are new questions (not used in the question bank). The exam is timed and you don't get to see the correct answer until you complete the exam and all your answers are submitted. On completing the exam you are presented with your grade and are able to review your responses so you can see what questions you had incorrect (unlike the real exam). You can resit the mock exam 25 times, each time the answers and options are randomised, to prevent learning by memorisation.
