I plan on getting my CSWP but don't have a home computer currently.
I wanted to make sure I could still access tutorials and practice exams if I'm unable to get a home computer and home user license before the October 4th cutoff.
You can't actually take the CSWP without SolidWorks.
Many tutorials exist... You may have to be more specific. However, I'll wager that unless you access them through the SW application, they'll be available.
I haven't looked at the practice exam in a while, but I'm pretty sure it's just a daggum PDF. You should be able to access it just fine. But I don't think it'll do you any good without SolidWorks...
thank for the reply Josh.
sounds like I should just go ahead and get the computer, home user license and download now, since I want to get the CSWP this year anyway..
Steve, if you understand SolidWorks enough to take the test then just going over the tutorials, and getting an idea of what the questions are going to be should be enough. Contact the local VARs to see if they will have a time for you to come and take the test if you do not have access to SolidWorks anywhere else.
what is this OCT 4th cutoff?
thanks for the reply David.
I use Solidworks for my job, but it's very much a copy from something existing and make small modifications kind of process...so I was thinking I needed more practice.
I was told that Dassault will not issue any new home user license after Oct 4th.
if you have access to SolidWorks at work, and there is a computer there... why not use that one. You get a lunch break?
you can clock out at the end of the day, and stay an hour later. Ask the boss to be able to come in and use the computer on a Saturday that you want to take the test.
There is nothing like trying to run the program on a crappy computer to frustrate the living daylights out of you. That is why I have suggested getting with your VAR if you really want to take the test and don't currently have a computer. I have invested quite a bit into pc's and laptops that should have been able to run solidworks. What really sucks is when the home computer runs better than the one that you "get" to use at work. So before you bite the bullet and buy a computer....look into those options.
