ACMT as of today

Place I work is replacing field devices with iPads, so I decided to take the opportunity to work towards my ACMT. It was a lot tougher than I thought. Only managed 90%.

Thank glob I didn't have to pay for training!

ETA: got the 2nd cert out of the way, too. 95%!

Woo!

    was the 9l0-011 difficult? what resources did you use? how often did you study and what did you use to study with (hardware)...

    and the same goes for (9l0-065)

    thank you very much

    Hi izzyiz426,
    I completed the ACMT certification within a week of studying Apple's official training resources.
    This was on GSX (Global Service Exchange) but is available through ATLAS if you purchase AppleCare Technician Training.
    Both 9L0-011 & 9L0-065 can be easily passed using the resources available through AppleCare Technician Training as a lot of the answers are (were for me anyway!) nearly written for you in the training.
    I was working for an APSP at the time on Work Experience and completed the exam to show that I was dedicated to working with Apple products and paid for it myself.
    The troubleshooting exam requires a fairly decent understanding of OS X Mavericks, so anything capable of running this is great in terms of hardware required.
    The service exam was a lot harder than I expected but I achieved a pass at 97% using the Apple Resources.
    The troubleshooting exam I only just managed to pass even with access to the training as a lot of the stuff in there I didn't even know 10.9 could do! So I should've prepared more for as I got a pass at 80% - Only just passed!
    One of the things they take really seriously in the hardware exam which is understandable is the ESD Precautions section. I believe this requires 4/5 questions to pass (I'm not entirely sure) or you fail anyway.

    Thanks,
    Ollie.

    I've been looking at this. They require a certain percentage to pass (I think 80%, but don't hold me to it) but they require you to make 100% on the battery parts or something like that. I remember reading something about it, but I can't find it now.

    Wow. I'm an asshat. I forgot about posting here.

    The tests that I took were all technically "open book" , but the time to question ratio means that you are better off studying than relying on the course materials. Only thing I used were the materials provided by apple. All I did was pore over the material for a few hours a day.

    Surprisingly, I used no apple hardware to study with. In fact, it was all moot, because up until I left that job, I never worked on an apple device.

    [FONT=&quot]I'm preparing the ACMT 2016 Mac Service Certification Exam (MAC-16A)[/FONT] [FONT=Myriad Set, Lucida Grande, Lucida Sans Unicode, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]with the online course provided by Apple trough the Atlas portal. First of all, the registration process is tedious and confusing, they sent me a little box with the code by mail (do they really need to waste money and paper on a code?) and then i realize i needed to open another account(gmx account) for being able to buy the examen after i finish the course, i did that, but then again i couldn't sync the course with this "tech id"... why? because i didn't use a corporate email on the process...[/FONT]

    [FONT=Myriad Set, Lucida Grande, Lucida Sans Unicode, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]Anyhow, I'm studying right now, trying to be ready for the test and pass(my employer pay for everything, obviously ONLY IF I PASS). Besides the online material, can somebody recommend any textbook? sometimes i study on my way to work when i commute but is impossible to do it online since i lost reception underground.

    I found this text, kinda pricey, and i'm not sure if its worth it.

    Do you know where I can find ATLAS study guide in PDF format.
    Do I need to purchase ATLAS AppleCare if I want to study for ACMT.

    I can't find any material for this exam. icon_sad.gif

    Yes I'm afraid you need to purchase the training before you can access it through ATLAS

    but to take the exams no need for ATLAS, also IT Support Professionals application for iOS/MacOS have all the questions.
