Certiprep™ Software  

The Certiprep for Microsoft® Office Specialist software is free to download, and takes only a few minutes to install. In order to successfully run the software, however, you must have a current validation code, which is issued with the purchase of a testing license. If you prefer to receive a hard copy of the Certiprep software, you can request to have a CD-ROM sent to you when you place your testing license order.

Please note: For the Microsoft® Office practice test to function, the corresponding version of Microsoft® Office must be installed on the computer where the practice test is being taken.
