Fill the knowledge gaps with Skillbuilder courses

These selected Skillbuilders will help you prepare for this exam:

General tips to be successful on your exam

  • Get hands-on practice across all the topics. Focus on areas you don't spend a lot of time working with.

  • Understand how Jira operates with no apps installed.

  • Check out the Atlassian product documentation. You'll discover slight differences in topics that might not know about.

  • If you normally use a localized product, be sure to use the English version to prepare for the exam. That way you'll be familiar with the names of menu options and other product features.

  • You're only allowed to have a few specific items with you during your exam:

    • A hard copy of the English or English Translation Dictionary (Printed on paper. Not digital.) This is allowed both online or at testing centers.
    • Pencil/pen and paper. These are allowed at testing centers only and have to be supplied by the testing center.
    • Water in a clear container
