If you’re getting ready to take on the UiPath RPA Associate Certification Exam (UiPRA), welcome! Here we will walk through the steps to get an overview of the exam and discuss some resources and tips for studying.
Exam Details and Scope
You can find exam information by going to https://www.uipath.com/learning/certification. If you scroll down to “Get Certified in 5 Easy Steps”, UiPath provides a number of really useful links.
Click on RPA Associate Exam Details to pull up the Exam Description Document. Here you will find a list of Exam Topics that you can use to study for the test. This is extremely helpful to use as a study guide to ensure you have a solid understanding of the topics that will be covered on the exam.
You’ll also see the Exam Details on this document which are good to know. With 60 questions in 90 minutes, you should have enough time to answer each question without being rushed and possibly even review them all.
UiPath offers a practice test that gives you a feel for the types of questions you’ll encounter on the real exam. You’ll find the link for the Associate Practice Exam under Step 3. After you take the test, you’ll see the questions you answered incorrectly along with the topic each one relates to to aid with further studying. You can take this test as many times as you like; however, the bank of questions remains the same though the order is random.
Other Study Tips
On the certification exam, you may be asked questions about the order of steps you would take to achieve something, such as adding a package, passing arguments in a workflow, or publishing a package to Orchestrator. Practicing answering these types of questions without being in UiPath can be useful as you study.
You’ll also see questions where you need to pick the best activity based on a specific scenario. Having a solid understanding of Excel activities and table functions is necessary for these.
Being comfortable with string manipulations is really important. You’ll probably see questions where you have to identify the correct expression from a list of options that just vary slightly from each other.
You can find additional practice questions at https://www.rpacertified.com/cert-questions-answers.html along with links to video lessons by Cameron McKenzie. Anders Jensen also has some really great YouTube videos if you want to review certain topics.
