SolidWorks Corporation: CSWA Sample Exam
Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA)
DISCLAIMER: This sample exam is provided to show you the format and approximate
difficulty level of the real exam. It is not meant to give away the whole CSWA exam.
These questions are an example of what to expect in the CSWA exam.
How to take this sample exam:
1. To best simulate the conditions of the real test, it is best NOT to print this exam. Since
the Virtual Tester client window runs concurrently with SolidWorks you must switch
back and forth between the two applications. Keeping this document open and consulting
it on your computer while running SolidWorks is the best method to simulate the real test
conditions.
2. The multiple choice answers should serve as a check for you to ensure that your model is
on the right track while completing this exam. If you do not find your answer in the
selections offered then most likely there is something wrong with your model at that
point.
3. Answers to the questions are on the last pages of this sample test document. There are
also hints that can help save time during the exam.
4. If you can complete this exam and get at least 6 out of the 8 questions correctly in 90
minutes or less then you should be ready to take the real CSWA exam.
What you will need for the real CSWA exam:
1. A computer that is running SolidWorks 2007 or higher.
2. The computer must have a connection to the Internet.
3. A double-monitor is recommended but not necessary.
4. If you will be running the Virtual Tester client on a separate computer from the one that
is running SolidWorks, make sure there is a way to transfer files from one computer to
the other. You will be required to download SolidWorks files during the real test to be
able to correctly answer some of the questions.
