Are you getting value for money from your exam prep tools?

Making an informed decision when buying a preparation tool for the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) and Adobe Certified Expert (ACA) exams.

At Examaids, all of our products are very specifically focused on the exam for which they were written. For example, if the title says Photoshop CC 2015 ACE Exam Aid, then it is intended to be used to prepare only for the corresponding Photoshop CC 2015 ACE exam. We also list the exam codes on our product pages for good measure, so that our customers can be one hundred percent confident about which exam the prep tool is specifically designed to cover.

When you use one of our prep tools, you can be assured of getting value for money. Why is that? One, we focus on the objectives issued by Adobe and, two, we don't include questions about newer features just because we feel they aught to be covered (the exams are frozen once they are released, so the questions will be wasted) and, three, we don't include questions from previous prep tools unless the same areas are covered by the previous and the current exam.

If a company claims you can study for two exams (i.e., Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6) by using one prep tool, they are being economical with the truth and relying on your ignorance of how exams are structured in order to make a quick sale. What will happen in practice is if you study for the Photoshop CC exam, then the questions specific to the Photoshop CS6 exam will be wasted as they will not be featured in the exam, and vice versa. So, if a company claims the prep tool contains 225 total questions, that figure may be reduced to 100 or 125, etc., pertinent and useful questions.

To give a concrete example of waste, if you are preparing for the Photoshop CC exam, you may be presented with questions about clone source, Puppet Warp, Liquify, various Bridge features, etc, etc, but those topics will not be covered by the exam as they are specific to only the Photoshop CS6 exam. That means a majority of the questions will be wasted. It's a two way traffic if you happen to be studying for the earlier Photoshop CS6 exam, you will likewise be short-changed.

What we do at Examaids is we weed out the questions that aren't pertinent to the newer exam, and write fresh questions to cover the topics not covered by the older exam. So, if we claim our Photoshop CC 2015 ACE Exam Aid contains 345 questions written to help you prepare for the corresponding exam, that is precisely what you will get.

Now you have the knowledge, you can make an informed decision as to which prep tool you should purchase. We hope, obviously, it will be one of ours but if ours appear to be more expensive in comparison, at least you now know why. The old saying stands: 'You get what you pay for!'
