Some tips:

  • Get hands-on practice across all the topics, paying particular attention to functionalities you work with less often.

  • Make sure you understand how Jira operates with no apps installed.

  • Consult the Atlassian product documentation to learn about nuances of each topic that you may be unfamiliar with.

  • Use the English version to prepare for the exam (If you typically use a localized product), so that you'll be familiar with the names of menu options and other product features.

  • Know which test aids are permitted during the exam:

    • Hard copy of English or English Translation Dictionary (allowed both online or at testing centers)
