I am planning to appear in the online Exemption Test (to be conducted by NIIT) for the ICSI-NIIT Compulsory Computer Training so as to become eligible to sit in for the ensuing CS (Inter) Examination-December,2007. Could you please throw some light on the so-called online Test as well as provide me a copy of the "Study Kit", if prepared by NIIT, in this regard?
AJIT YOU CAN GET THE STUDY KIT FROM THE INSTITUTE IF YOU REGISTER FOR REGULAR COURSE FROM NIIT; USUALLY NO STUDY KIT IS PROVIDED BY NIIT. IN CASE OF ONLINE EXEMPTION TEST I THINK YOU WON'T GET BOOKS FROM THE INSTITUTE. YOU WILL HAVE TO REFER SUPPLEMENTARY BOOKS FOR PREPERATION. MOREOVER YOU CAN APPEAR IN DECEMBER 2007 ONLY BY FILLING DECLARATION FORM AVAILABLE ON INSTITUTE'S WEBSITE AS THE DATE FOR COMPLETING NIIT TRAINING HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TO FEB. 24, 2008.
Generally the questions asked in this test are related to E-Commerce and PPT....
As such no study is reqd for such test... but if u wanna prepare then u can take bks from the person who r doin regular training as the test is same for both type of students...
You will get two opportunities to clear this exam...
