Free CLAD exam at LabVIEW Developer Education Day

Posted on Sunday 4 May 2008

LabVIEW Developer Education Day is coming up soon (May 22), here in the San Francisco Bay Area.  The good news is that National Instruments will be giving free Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer exams at the event, so, if you're not yet certified, this is a great way to do it.  If you've read my blog, you know that certification matters (to me).

Recently, I've gotten a couple emails from friends about how they should study for the exam.  Here are my thoughts:

First, I recommend my book (of course), LabVIEW for Everyone.  There's info in the preface on the LabVIEW exams and how to use the book as a study guide.  We worked directly with National Instruments' training department to make sure that the book was a good resource for the LabVIEW certification exams.

Next, I recommend that you take a look at the LabVIEW tutorials on the LabVIEW wiki and the exam prep resources provided by NI (especially, the How Can I Prepare for the Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer (CLAD) Exam? page).  When you have studied and you want to test your skills, here is an online quiz and sample exam you can take.

If you are taking the exam, good luck.  Study hard, practice, and I'm sure you'll do well :)

    At the Developer Day in Raleigh, they were also handing out CLAD prep material during the seminars so potential test takers could review it during the talks or over lunch or whatever. I didn’t see what it consisted of, but I assume it was similar or identical to the online resources you mentioned.

    Hi Devi, I don’t know if there is any developer day in India — all I know is what’s on NI’s site, here. You should check with your local National Instruments offices. I did find this page containing info on NI training in India.
