Hi Friends,

 

The fundamental pdf material provided to study for the exam is not up to date. The user interphase shown in the pdf document is not what we see in the present adwords account. Can anyone help me to get the latest material with all the updates.

Hi Samjith,

The current changes in adwords are just a little change in the look for simple navigation, like the billing tab and account security have moved under the gear icon, but everything is still like before.
But don't worry , if the fundamental material doesn't include some of the new adwords features, assure that it's not gonna include in the exam.

Hi Ahmed,

Thank you for the inputs. It was really helpful as i was in doubt if I should go ahead with the material or not.

Regards,
Samjith

Hello;
This is exactly the issue with PDF. It takes a while to update. Hence, when, initially, the learning center was revised, a pdf format was not available. Only after requests from advertisers, Google added a pdf. But, this comes with a limitation (of not being updated "on the fly").  Smiley Surprised

I am a bit in disagreement with  Ahmed  on this; (Rare to happen.... Smiley Happy ) 

The required material / syllabus   for the exam is the online version. The pdf is an  "exam  aid tool".  (The current version updated in October 2013)

I didn't mention the PDF in my answer, I was talking about the material in general. I don't know if Google update the pdf consistently or not , the last time i took the exam it was the same.
Anyway I agree with you Moshe , I don't prefer studying from the PDF , especially each article has a lot of URLs references you should study it and that is not available with PDF.
