Adwords Certification Program - Which layout of Learning Center ?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello all,

 

Sorry there is no google group dedicated to google certification programme so I posted it here.

So, I am in the process of getting my google adwords certification programme, and as a good student, I decided to go through the learning center.

 

However, when i click on "study for this exam", i land on a page that looks like this: http://tinypic.com/r/a3peoj/6

This is when I look up the learning center in French.

Now I feel I should study in english, so naturally I changed the language to Eglish(US) to have and use the proper international vocabulary, and I then, land on this: http://tinypic.com/r/21bizio/6

 

So, this seems odd to me, on the English (US) page, which, I guess, is supposed to be the most updated version, there is only the learning material for 2 tests instead of 4, with a completely different layout. (much less intuitive).

 

After this, I got confused, and checked on other languages, and the English-Australia, English-GB learning center pages look exactly like the french version. Basically only the English-US is different.

 

So my question is this, which layout/version of the learning center is the correct one to use in order to study and prepare properly for the certification programme ? 

 

Thank you very much in advance for your answers.

Hello Nowis;

Google has been updating  the learning center. This process has not been completed (yet) for  all languages. Even in English, the UK and Australia versions are not fully updated. 

 

As you correctly pointed out, the most up to date learning center, that covers all syllabus (including enhanced campaigns), is the English (US) one.  It is also true, that the material for the reporting exam has not been added.

 

(I would recommend to take the fundamental exam, and  the search  exam or the display one - (or both), and "skip", for now, the reporting.

Hi Moshe,

 

Thanks for your answer, I appreciate it.

I'll then use the learning center on the EN-Us page then, but this does seem odd, that the new learning center has a less intuitive and clear layout than the old one, this doesn't seem very google-like

 

I'm also very surprised there is not more topics about this on the net since this can be very confusing for the end-user. 

 

Anyway, thanks a lot, and time to study now !

Nowis.
