Pre Exam Notes

  • Kryterion Sentinel software (Windows/Mac) installation requires administrator rights
  • Kyterion system check - do this at least a day before to be on the safe side
  • Identification taken using your phone
  • No breaks during two hour exam
  • Do the practice exam to build some confidence
  • (Try and) get a good nights sleep before the exam
  • The exam is multiple choice, so work out the wrong answers first!!

Post Exam Notes

  • Online Kryterion exams still suck - Admin permissions for the entire machine, seriously?
  • Confirmation of the exam result was one day (also came on a weekend)!!
  • Swag stock is still limited, but better stock in general
  • Swag is by geographic region (i.e. Europe, India, Everywhere else)
  • In 2024 we finally get feedback, but only if you fail (Grrr!)
  • 50 Questions

Google Cloud do not indicate the pass mark for the exam, but I would assume its somewhere greater than 70%.

I typically aim to be confident on 80% (i.e. 40/50) of the questions.

Depending on what type of person you are the above calculation may be of some use. I think about the exam result in terms of how many answers I can afford to NOT know.

Once you have read the exam overview, it should be clear this exam is meant to cover Workspace, IAM and Networking products.

Training Material

If you have got this far, I haven't put you off taking the exam. In which case, the material I used to get ready for the exam is listed below. Note: This is not an exhaustive list. Also try and prioritise the type of material that works best for you!

Source Type Description Rating
Coursera Course Google Professional Workspace Administrator Professional Certification 3/5
Pluralsight Course Cloud Security with Google Cloud 4/5
  • The Coursera is the full course offered by Google (its pretty long) aimed at teaching you indepth about Workspace.
  • The Pluralsight course is a much shorter course and is squarely aimed at helping you pass the exam.

Best of luck!
