The BEST Way to Study for a SOLIDWORKS Certification Exam

One of the most common questions we receive regarding SOLIDWORKS certification is ‘What’s the best way to study for an exam?’  Our first suggestion is to direct users to the certification page at MySolidWorks where they can find loads of videos designed to help them prepare for the Certification exams.

In 2015 we offered a special certification promotion via MySolidWorks. The promotion included open access to preparation materials and quizzes associated with preparing for the CSWA exam.  Typically the CSWA exam has a pass rate of around 65%, but thanks to last year’s special offer providing access to the preparation materials on MySolidWorks last year the exam pass rate increased to nearly 85%.


If you’re a SOLIDWORKS customer who has an active Subscription Service contract, you have access to MySolidWorks Standard when you log in or create an account, which provides access to the preparation materials designed to help you become a Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate.  The materials walk you through the related topics found in the CSWA exam.  In addition, MySolidWorks Standard gives you access to hundreds of product tutorial videos, online storage services for sharing designs, and a worldwide network of manufacturers who can help bring designs to life.

If the thought of exams and studying sends shivers down your spine remember this: since introducing the CSWA program on MySolidWorks, users who completed the preparation course have experienced a 20% greater success rate of passing the exam on their first try than those who have not reviewed the preparation materials.
