I am currently laid off and trying to get the CSWP certification. Can I use the student version to take the test?
I suggest getting used to any of the student version differences and be comfortable with it,
get your shortcuts and other features, menus, command manager, filters, etc. setup to what you are used to so you don't spend extra time searching for commands or icons... that aren't where you are used to having them.
Setup your templates ahead of time.
There are some good prep video lessons available to give you some hints.
I have watched the Linked-in Learning courses that get you setup and ready for taking the tests efficiently.
Try doing the sample tests so you are used to it.
Relax and feel comfortable before you start
I have been planning to take the CSWP as well but every time I start preparing life or work gets busy.
Yes you should be able to take the exam but make sure that your version is higher than the one mentioned in the exam prerequisite list.
