The long awaited GISP practice exam has arrived!
The GISCI posted the following on their website:
Des Plaines, IL (August 3, 2017)
In response to great demand, GISCI has produced its first Practice Exam, designed to provide 50 sample questions based on most of the KSAs listed in our Exam Blueprint. This is intended to aid those preparing to take the exam by giving an individual an opportunity to determine her/his knowledge of the areas tested.
The practice exam is available for download here (pdf).
We hope that this will be the first of several practice exams we and others in the geospatial community will be able to provide to assist exam candidates in adequately preparing to sit for the Geospatial Core Technical Knowledge Exam.
