Google Analytics Individual Qualification (GAIQ) Exam Test

Yesterday, I passed the Google Analytics Individual Credentials (GAIQ) examination with a rating of 91%. It’s a 70 question on-line test which you have a hr and a fifty percent to complete and also you have to get 80% to pass (Google just recently raised the pass rate from 75% as well as the decreased the time enabled by 30 minutes). I didn’t locate this to be way too much of an issue as I still had 15 mins spare.

The test comprises of several choice inquiries, usually with 4 answers to pick from. Some nevertheless, are the ‘inspect all that apply’ kind, which I found the trickiest.

Getting ready for the GAIQ examination Prior to you take the GAIQ examination, the very best resource for preparation is Google’s Conversion University lessons, which are broken down in to conveniently absorbable sectors. It goes through the essential fundamentals, which are easy and mostly common sense to more advanced analytic code placing and also report generation.

I would certainly advise still reviewing all the lessons, and search for particularly for those ‘examine all that reply’ questions. The lessons are laid out in a practical order, but web content is discussed quickly so be prepared to hit the time out button regularly, specifically if you are preparing to make note. The lessons which I believe were the most helpful in terms of passing the examination and also, the ones you ought to refresh/familiarize yourself with are:

Profiles in Google Analytics
E-Commerce Tracking
Filters in Google Analytics
Domains as well as Sub-Domains
Cookies and also Google Analytics

My examination consisted of a lot of AdWords relevant inquiries, which although is covered in the lessons I believe I would certainly have struggled a little bit if I was not acquainted with running campaigns. I ‘d suggest authorizing up to an AdWords account to get a feeling of just how it functions.

I assume the Conversion University lessons cover most points I have in the past located both Avinash Kaushik’s books; Internet Analytics 2.0 and Internet Analytics: An Hour a Day truly simple to read and also digest.

I did review somewhere that most of the exam questions were generated from Brian Clifton’s Advanced Web Metrics with Google Analytics book as well as I can see why. Absolutely a valuable book and also it includes a handy 50% off coupon for the GAIQ test, saving $25 as well as effectively making the book free!

Throughout the GAIQ examination With 70 inquiries and also a hr and also a half to complete, this only offers you extremely limited time to go research study the questions (a min approximately per question). Some of concerns you will conveniently breeze through, leaving adequate time to do a little bit of study for those harder ones. The sources that I suggest having open in your browser during the test are:

Google Browse – The answer to most things, although you won’t pass without preparation.

Google Analytics – Make sure you’re visited

IP Address Array Regex Device – I had a IP array inquiry, which I just connected into this tool

Cookie Referral – There were lots of cookie inquiries

The best device was the Conversion College itself. I set up the listed below web page to be able to rapidly find the information I was trying to find across all the lessons:

Conversion University Notes – Truly helpful if you use ‘ctrl F’

Verdict I hope you located this post helpful in planning for the exam. The test isn’t as well challenging as long as you have actually had experience with Google Analytics and also utilize the above pointers to brush up as well as rejuvenate on things you’re unfamiliar with.

You will be granted with the complying with certification as a PDF data that you can publish and put on your wall if you’re this way inclined.
