Why get certified on Windows 8?

Windows 8 is an operating system for PC's in the Windows NT group. Development of Windows 8 began before even the release of Windows 7 and it was released in the fall of 2012. Windows 8 was a major overhaul, especially when contrasted with the incremental changes of Windows 7. Users of previous OS's will need to familiarize themselves with new interface features and usability of Windows 8 which is designed to bridge the gap between the traditional desktop workspace to newer platforms including tables and mobile application. A Windows 8 certification from NCSA demonstrates to employers that you have acquired a level of knowledge equivalent to six months experience with the software.

What do I need to study?

The best way to 'study' for an exam is to be experienced with the subject material... in this case Windows 8. The knowledge gained through real world experience of using the new interface features and installing, using, and maintaining the operating system can't be matched by simply reading about it in a book. When evaluating training for Windows 8 you should focus on those courses which demonstrate and encourage practical methods or provide exercises you can use on your desktop of tablet.
