Pearson IT Certification Practice Test
Engine and Questions on the DVD
The DVD in the back of this book includes the Pearson IT
Certification Practice Test engine—software that displays and
grades a set of exam-realistic multiplechoice questions. Using the
Pearson IT Certification Practice Test engine, you can either study
by going through the questions in Study Mode, or take a simulated
exam that mimics real exam conditions. You can also serve up
questions in a Flash Card Mode that will display just the question
and no answers, challenging you to state the answer in your own
words before checking the actual answers to verify your work.

The installation process requires two major steps: installing the
software and then activating the exam. The DVD in the back of this
book has a recent copy of the Pearson IT Certification Practice
Test engine. The practice exam—the database of exam
questions—is not on the DVD.
