Captivate 5 ACE exam objectives

A reminder- the Captivate 5 ACE exams are available for registration and the first date you can take the exam is Feb 10th .

Many of you might have already signed up for the Captivate 5 ACE exam. And as we’ve seen in the comments in my previous blog post people have been asking for the exam objectives (which normally get posted on our website).

    Do have a couple of questions about the objectives:
    1. Roundtripping with Photoshop: the full functionality of roundtripping is only available in the eLearning Suite. What is meant by the roundtripping exactly here?
    2. Importing objects directly is not possible as it was in previous versions, only importing external library and reusing the objects that are available there. This is confusing, what is really meant here?

    • Shameer Ayyappan

      @Lieve: Photoshop- PSD import, retaining the layer information, is supported in the stand alone Captivate version. Importing objects- The new workflow of importing the library is what is referred to here.

    Thanks for sharing the list.

      Can you shed some insight, please? How long did the exam take? Was it multiple choice?
      How many hours did you study?

      Thank you, ACE!

      Congrats.
      I tried to take the test in Germany, but VUE was not able to send the test.
      Since then I did not receive any reply to my questions (emails) from the testing site, VUE or Adobe.

      About the time you have: This is shown in the VUE set up.
      If you are not native English you have 125 minutes (including an add. 30 minutes).
