I failed the test with 686 score- a long way to pass!! Except for two programming questions (each perhaps with two or three questions) I thought I answered the others correctly  Specially I was very confident that I answered all the multiple choice questions correctly.

Is there a way of having the answer sheet so that I can know where I went wrong??

Are the questions in program questions and the multiple choice questions weighed equally?

We do not provide additional details beyond the section scores that are shown on the score report. No item level detail is provided. The free practice exam provides item level details and explanations.

 

The performance-based questions carry more weight than the standard questions.

Thank you Mark.

Is there a source of a bunch of datasets and questions based on them to
practice intensly and gain speed so that I will be quicker in answering
questions in the exam. I practiced with the scenarios in the practice guide
and the coursera certification test course.

Question: How much actual work outside of certification preparation have you done with SAS?

 

I am a tad concerned about the validity of other sources of "practice test" questions and explanations. We have had a number of questions about different sources of practice that are sometimes just wrong. Some sources are also old. While the answers provided at the time the questions were developed likely still hold there may well be more preferred answers today (big example is anything graphics related).

 

As has been suggested to many over the years: check questions on this forum and see if you can solve them. Start with the various learning sections and then move into the general programming.

 

Speed and accuracy have a direct correlation with the  number of actual solved problems. (Meta-theorem from my calculus courses).

Hi Baakardw;

Where can I get loads of practice assignments for training to achieve
accuracy and speed. I want to practice and become confident in retaking the
test.

I'd be skeptical of the question dumps, they're usually the older exams and not always right.
