Hello there, could you please visit the FAQ page to know more about the features of the Tutorials Dojo portal – https://portal.tutorialsdojo.com/faqs/
We have also made the extra effort of explaining how each Training Mode works in the INSTRUCTIONS section of each part of the test. I suggest that you thoroughly read these instructions first to understand what each section contains.

Hello, mate. This is discussed in the the FAQ page (https://portal.tutorialsdojo.com/faqs/) > Where do I see my course progress and previous attempts.
We do recommend that you go through the FAQ page first to learn more about the Tutorials Dojo portal’s features and so you are able to maximize the use of the site.

Thank you for posting here. It is absolutely possible to jump from one training mode to another as you desire and in fact, we highly recommend doing this as we understand that different people have different preferences when it comes to learning.
So if you are more comfortable answering a few questions first, you can opt to do some tests in the Review Mode as it randomly generates 30 questions from a given set every time you load a particular test in that training mode. You can then move on to Timed Mode if you want to simulate the actual exam environment.
Either way, the goal here is to provide you as much training modes as possible to help you not just pass the exam but also learn a lot and become a competent AWS professional.
Hope this helps and enjoy learning at the Dojo! 🙂

Thanks for the suggestion, Robert! We’ll certainly consider that for future improvement of the site. 🙂

You can absolutely choose to load any portion of the test without having to complete them in chronological order. The course is designed to be in “free form” i.e. it’s not mandatory to go through each time mode test first so feel free to jump into any section that you want to tackle.
As for the Review Mode, we highly recommend going through the explanations as you answer each question. It is a crucial part of that training mode and skipping the explanations part would make it almost just like the time mode except that you know right away whether you were right or wrong.

Thanks for posting here. Below are my responses to the issues that you raised:
And another one asking for the Pause button in the timed test!
Yes, I read your reply that the Save&Next button acts like a Pause, but the time keeps running or? In other words I don’t understand (despite the clarifications in this thread and the instructions page before the test) how the Save&Next button can act like a Pause, as I also didn’t see an Exit button. This area does need some simplification I think!
>>I can guarantee you that the timer does STOP whenever you hop out of the exam so if there’s 30 minutes remaining if you exit a test in timed mode, you’ll definitely have 30 minutes when you resume the set. We do understand that having a Pause button is more straightforward and ideal and it’s something that we will definitely consider for future improvement.
– upon a multi-option answer required (e.g. choose 3), either give a clear warning that not 3 options were selected AND/OR do not proceed when someone clicks the Save&Next button and not the required amount of options was selected (this happened to me several times with Udemy, contrary to Whizlabs which gives a warning and doesn’t let you proceed, which is better I feel)
>>I understand that Whizlabs has absolutely fantastic test features but I hope you understand that Whizlabs was founded in 2002 and it took them more than a decade to be where they are right now with top-notch interface and testing features. We have just released the portal last month and it’s simply not possible to be as feature-rich as these other platforms right away. We could argue though that “young” as we may be, our content are always of top-notch quality, even exceeding those that have long existed in the market.
Nevertheless, we do appreciate the feedback. Our first few months are meant to be a feedback-gathering stage so we can add the more compelling improvements first, based on what’s more important for our users.
– the JSON in the security speciality sampler timed test was not indented, which makes it a pain in the <censored> to read!
>> To assist us in checking this, could you kindly send a screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org?
– a feedback button per question (at least in review mode of after a timed test is finished and you review the result) would be beneficial I think
>>This is once again an advanced feature which hopefully we can incorporate in the future.
– consider to move the test progress and time from the top of the page to the (left)side, so that you always have this in view (similar to Whizlabs), reduces scrolling
>>Alright, this is noted. We’ll see if this is a low hanging fruit that can be improved quickly.
– option to reduce the font size, so that more of the question and answers fits on the screen? (less scrolling)
>>Unfortunately, we need to cater to those who are visually-impaired and we can’t go any smaller that how it currently is. Nevertheless, thanks for the suggestion! 🙂

Thanks for your feedback. You do have the ability to Pause the tests in Timed Mode via the Save&Next button where you can hop out and continue at a later time.
In both the Review Mode and Section-Based tests, the length of the tests are short (max of 30 questions only) and based on feedback we have gathered, this is the ideal length of questions that a user can do in one sitting, which minimizes the need for a Pause button. Lastly, for the Final Test, we want to really simulate the actual exam environment here where even bathroom breaks are not allowed so we designed it to run continuously during the entire duration of the test without the ability to Pause.
Nevertheless, we value your suggestion and we will keep that in mind for possible future updates.

There is a section in the FAQ about viewing progress and previous attempts. Did you try to read what’s in the FAQ page?
AdministratorApril 21, 2020 at 12:26 am
Hello Deme, thanks for posting here. I’m just gonna copy Jon’s response in the above thread where the ability to Pause was raised:
“The tests in every Timed Mode absolutely does have the capability to save your progress via the Save & Next button. Let’s say for example that you are at Question#10 out of 65. After you click Save & Next, Question#11 will be displayed. If you jump out of the set, your answers to the 10 questions are definitely saved. When you go back to that same test, you will see 10 questions that have been marked as answered throughout the test.
Just a note though: These 10 answered questions are randomly spread throughout the test because the randomization feature is activated in all tests in the Timed Mode. But the timer definitely resumes to when you left the test and previous answers are recorded.”
Hope this clarifies things. The Save & Next button in every Timed Mode set essentially acts as a Pause button as mentioned by Jon above. 🙂

Hello Raja, thanks once again for another suggestion. This one requires a lot of customization and coding and not something that can be easily done. This is noted though but this most likely won’t be available anytime soon. 🙂
AdministratorApril 20, 2020 at 1:31 am
Thanks a lot for your fun suggestions, Tobias! It’ll surely make learning more fun and less exhausting. We’ll take note of these suggestions and discuss with Jon and the rest of the team. 🙂
AdministratorApril 18, 2020 at 9:27 pm
Good point, rcabrera. We will certainly look into ways to improve the flagging feature as everyone has suggested. 🙂

Thanks for posting here. To answer your clarifications:
Why does the Review mode only extracts 30 questions from the 65 question set? (I assume Review Set 1 is associated with Timed Set 1, and so).
– Yes, Timed Mode Set 1 questions are the same as Review Mode Set 1 questions, just presented differently. In Review Mode, you can view the answers and detailed explanations as you go through each question. Initially, the Review Mode also contains the equivalent number of question in Timed Mode i.e. 65 questions for Associate exams, however, this has caused user fatigue as not everyone can sit through an entire 65-set test where the explanations are presented to you as you navigate through each question. It simply was’t ideal so we trimmed it to load fewer questions. Every time you load a set in Review Mode, it will randomly generate 30 questions from the set, which is good enough for one sitting.
I’d like a way to do this: A question shown to me, the opportunity for me to answer it, and then the correct answer and explanation would appear. That would boost my learning experience a lot. Does Review mode do that? Why only 30 questions, though?
– The answer to this question is explained above.
Right now, what I’m doing is finishing the Timed mode, and then I have to read again all the questions to pick the context for the answers/explanations… it’s very time consuming.
– This is exactly the pain that we hear from our Udemy students since only a Timed Mode is available in the Udemy platform. This is why we have created the Tutorials Dojo portal which contains 3 additional training modes (Review Mode, Section-Based Mode, Final Test) to provide you with a much better learning experience.
Hope this helps and do check out the FAQ page for a better understanding of the training modes in the Tutorials Dojo portal – https://portal.tutorialsdojo.com/faqs/
