- Advertisement -

A week ago I passed the PCAP-31-03 exam. With the success in this exam, I have earned the PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming credential. To me, it’s one of the happiest moments of my life because it is my first ever certification exam and certification. I would like to share my experience with you.  Let me begin with my introduction. I am a student of bachelor’s of information technology and an amateur programmer and planning to adopt a career in software development after completion of my studies. I have been working with Java and JavaScript for quite some time. Lately, I have developed an interest in Python programming. I found it simpler and powerful and I want to excel in this language. So I opted for PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification. As I am already doing experiments with Python, that’s why I found the course contents to be familiar. A friend of mine, based on his personal experience, suggested to me Crack4Sure for training material. Firstly, I downloaded the free demo from Crack4Sure for an evaluation. I found it worth opting for so I took the complete package of PDF and Testing Engine for the PCAP-31-03 exam Questions from Crack4Sure. All the training material provided by Crack4Sure is covered by a money-back guarantee for sure success in the PCAP certification exam. With the help of the authentic and updated training material by Crack4Sure.com, I was able to complete my preparation in 4 weeks. Then I took the PCAP-31-03 exam and passed it with 91% and earned PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification.

That’s how I passed the exam and earned the certification.

Here is an overview of the exam and the certification.

PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification

Overview

PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification is a professional credential that measures your ability to accomplish coding tasks related to the basics of programming in the Python language and the fundamental notions and techniques used in object-oriented programming.

PCAP – Certified Associate in Python Programming certification shows that the individual is familiar with general computer programming concepts like conditional execution, loops, Python programming language syntax, semantics, and the runtime environment, as well as with general coding techniques and object-oriented programming.

Becoming PCAP certified ensures that the individual is fully acquainted with all the primary means provided by Python 3 to enable her/him to start her/his own studies, and to open a path to the developer’s career.

PCAP: Course Objectives vs. Exam Objectives

The aim of the following courses:

  • PCAP: Programming Essentials in Python (Cisco NetAcad, Instructor-Led)
  • Python Essentials (Cisco NetAcad, Self-Study)
  • and Programming Fundamentals in Python Part 1 and Part 2 (OpenEDG Education Platform, Self-Study)

is to familiarize the student with general computer programming concepts like conditional execution, loops, Python programming language syntax, semantics, and the runtime environment, as well as with general coding techniques and object-oriented programming.

Completing any of the courses ensures that the student is fully acquainted with all the primary means provided by Python 3 to enable her/him to start her/his own studies, and to open a path to the developer’s career.

The courses are fully aligned with the PCAP-31-03 Exam Dumps – Certified Associate in Python programming certification provided by the OpenEDG Python Institute in collaboration with Pearson VUE.
