  • Familiarising yourself with Word. Open your Microsoft Word application and ‘play around’. This will help you to reacquaint yourself with the many tasks that can be performed using the programme and the different functions it can perform.
  • Practise. Practise. Practise. It may be cliche to say, but practise really does make perfect. Practising prior to your Microsoft Word test will give you insight into the question types and tasks you will be expected to perform. Using a mix of practice tests with full answer explanations and study guides will help stimulate your learning process, thus improving your chances of success.

How to Prepare for the Microsoft Word Test

The purpose of the Microsoft Word assessments is to make sure that you know how to perform necessary tasks for the job you have applied for. These tasks will often include formatting, file management, printing, editing, creation of tables and graphics, use of tools and automation, etc. During a Word test, you are asked to perform tasks such as using the menus, tool bars, short cut keys and more.
