Has anyone taken the Office Proficiency Assessment and Certification (OPAC) test recently, or have documentation on what
At the end of May, my husband and I will be moving from Chicago to a TBD city for grad school — possibly in Michigan, California, or Colorado.
I will not be in school at all, and am instead looking for full-time office work.
One of the temp services I'm looking at uses the OPAC. In the early-'90s I did poorly on a similar test, because I didn't know the exact features that it would test on ahead of time, and it didn't allow me to work like I normally do for things I don't know (such as, quickly check the help menu when it asks me to make block quotes).
I have a lot of office experience, but the memory of flubbing the test is sticking with me.
Online I've found a syllabus
from 2002, an expensive testing booklet
from 1999 (would it be worth it?), and general descriptions on the OPAC website
Does anyone have recent, firsthand experience?
