​I was planning to take my first Adobe Certification after learning this resource. I would probably try this certification first.

I clicked on the link to download the exam prep and was directed to download Flash Player. My Flash Player is already up to date. How do I bypass this page?

Thank you,

Any chance of a complete breakdown of the curriculum? If you give that I don't even need a sample exam.

You can use the following syllabus with associated activities and technical tutorials: Preparing for the ACA Visual Communication Using Adobe Photoshop Exam. You can download just the items you want by select individual pieces of the syllabus. Or you can download all of the documentation by selecting "Syllabus Bundle" in the upper right corner.

We hope this is helpful in your preparation.

Thanks. Always good to study just before I turn out the lights and go to sleep. That way, I dream in Photoshop! Really - it works.
