Important Facts about Intermediate Excel Tests

The intermediate Excel test can appear under different names: some companies will refer to it as "standard test", other calls it: "normal user" etc.

Though companies usually hold an intermediate question bank, many of them doesn't offer an intermediate test. For those who do offer such a test, it is unlikely to get medium level questions alone, but rather questions of various levels from basic to advanced. In fact, what differentiates the tests from each other is the ratio between the numbers of questions at each level.
Your practice should cover a wide variety of topics, and include advanced tasks. That, in order to make sure you master as many questions as possible.
