    Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) exams for Dreamweaver, Flash and Photoshop CS3

    Drop Ship Lifestyle


    I notice nobody has put up the exam objectives for these new Adobe exams yet. I’ve attached them as simple text files.

    These are entry level exams, and are pretty easy if you’ve done much work with the products at all. There is a little bit about the design process and web standards, as well as using the product. There are ‘studio 8’ exams for Flash and Dreamweaver, and CS3 exams for all three products. For the CS3 exams many of the questions are task-based using a simulation of the applications.

    If you are a teacher/instructor you can get free exam vouchers. Contact the Certiport EMEA site if you are in the UK.

    I'm actually waiting for the results of the beta ACA: Flash CS3 exam I took just over 6 weeks ago - the results of this exam should be released soon as the next one the ACA: Photoshop CS3 will start on the 24th of March to the 7th of April.

    Yes, for the sake of clarity, I'll repeat the beta dates:

    Flash CS3 Released: February 12

    Photoshop CS3 Beta: March 10-March 24
    Photoshop CS3 Release: April 30

    Dreamweaver CS3 Beta: April 23-May 7
    Dreamweaver CS3 Release: June 13

    The 'version 8' exams for Dreamweaver and Flash have been released for some time.

    I should probably just go challenge the Photoshop CS3 exam. I've lived in the product so long that it feels like an extra limb to me now.

    Can anyone recommend some good study material?

    On second thought, I'm not sure the study material will be necessary. I've just reviewed the exam objectives and they seem rather...basic.

    The pass score for the released Flash CS3 exam is 700, but that may not be true of the beta.

    As I've said, these exams are very much 'entry level'. Adobe recognised that you need to have a lot of background design/print experience to pass ACP or ACE.

    Wagnerk should have got his Flash CS3 beta results by now, as the beta results were released in early March.

    As for preparation, you should be OK if you're an everyday user of the products. According to the exam objectives, you will also need to know the basics of project specification and design, and know a little about web standards.

    Thanks Stig, I am just starting out so it will be a while before I think I am ready for the exams. But I think I will try for them after I know the software inside and out. I just got my CS3 web premium Suite the other day, so I am really looking forward to the learning exp.

    Hey Mitzs, found out that I failed the exam (not surprised)- but considering that I only had 2 days working/studying it I didn't think that I did that bad.

    Going to sit the Photoshop exam tomorrow, we'll see what I'll get on that.
