I already know how to use it !!
Make a trip to SWW 2017 in LA and they, SW folks, might let you take the test
very funny !!but I ll consider it
Take it through your school or use your work computer if they'll let you do it while not clocked in.
You can visit SOLIDWORKS reseller office in your area and they can let you take the test on their machine.
I like Deepak Gupta's suggestion if you can't use your work computer.
Have you tried the sample exam?
If not, I suggest you do.
I had a coupon to take the test for free but waited to the last minute and rushed through it and just missed passing.
You should practice first.
Maninder doesnt have SW (no VAR) - how to stop VAR office and take the test?
Why not download the 30 day free trial and use it.
give the trail a try or you can always purchase the less expensive student edition as well
There are many VARs around the world that are authorized test center for these certification exams.
thanks Deepak!! i did talk with em. they said u have to take class of five days first, that gonna cost me $2000!!!
yeah Rick!! i did all available practice exams online ! and keep on working on them? thanks for the suggestion!!
anyways how was the exams means what kind of questions?
im already graduated from university!!
That's too much for just giving the exam. Bets would be to try the trial version, use a friend or someone's machine from SOLIDWORKS user group in your area. Check if your university can allow you to use their machine if they SOLIDWORKS.
It's been a while since I took it but it was similar to the practice exam.
I was not ready and got stuck on one thing and spent too long working on it and ran out of time.
Later found what I was doing wrong.
Just have not gotten time to try again.
hum!! do you have any practice exam now? as I told, already did all of practise exams on solid works website and I'm in try to find some more problems!!
The least expensive way to get a legitimate COMMERCIAL copy of SOLIDWORKS is to obtain a standard term license for 90 days. In the Northeast retail is $810, this includes software licensing and support. This last part is crucial; as a user on maintenance you're entitled to certain benefits(free exams, My Solidworks pro access)
Seeing as you already have the skills you'd just need to use the software for a short time anyway to refresh your skillset. and take the CWSA exam under the umbrella of being 'on support' through a VAR.
$810 all in....if you spoke to a VAR rep they should be telling you this.
Please feel free to call me, I'm a user and a sales guy, and I know what its like to be on the other end of the phone with a VAR.
Best of luck to you Maninder!
I was looking for the "Standard term License" information when I first saw this post, but it's not easy to find the information or pricing details.
Glad you found it and suggested it to Maninder.
Also I did not remember what it was being called.
glad it was useful Rick. Good luck to you this year!
This is a good suggestion for you lucky people. Both our VAR and our local user group are 5 hours (350 miles) away.
Yikes! That's a hike.....If you would like to start a new user group I'm sure that Rachel Diane York would be a great person to contact, @ Dassault.
She's the user group community outreach point of contact. Maybe you guys could start your own SWUG closer to home?
I have thought of that but not yet. At this point it is closer to meet Todd Blacksher with SUGONE on their western visits. At least as long as he brings the Flippin Sweet pizza.
A trip to SWW might be more expensive than the cost of a SW license
Do you have to pay a fee for it?
I'm working with Justin Jagels to revive the User Group in Wichita - it is still about a 200 mile haul for you - maybe you can help me get a group going in Western Kansas . . .
mmmm Flippin' Sweet . . . time for another road trip!
