Official Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) Examination Guide
SolidWorks 2008, 2009, and 2010
Most CAD professionals today recognize the need to become certified to prove their skills, prepare for new job searches, and to learn new skills while at their existing job. Specifying a Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) certification on your resume is a great way to increase your chances of landing a new job, getting a promotion, or looking more qualified when representing your company on a consulting job.
Official Certified SolidWorks Associate Examination Guide covers the key topics contained on the exam with the aim of helping readers to master each topic as well as the exam itself. The book is more than a collection of practice exam questions because it also devotes attention to the concepts and implementation details that underlie the CSWA process, providing readers with a thorough and comprehensive foundation in SolidWorks.
Each chapter in this book is geared toward helping you discover the topics that are on the CSWA exam, pinpoint where you have a knowledge deficiency, and determine what you need to know to master these topics. Ideal for anyone with a basic knowledge of SolidWorks and engineering fundamentals, this book will help you get the certification you need to land the best jobs, get the best promotions, and become a successful professional.
The first chapter is a general review of the SolidWorks User Interface. The other five chapters in the book address a key exam category. The chapters provide individual short practice tutorials to review the required competencies. The complexity of the models along with the features progressively increases throughout each chapter to build knowledge and to simulate the types of questions that would be provided on the exam. All models for the 110 plus tutorials are on the enclosed CD and are compatible with SolidWorks 2008, 2009, and 2010.
