The Esri ArcGIS Desktop Professional Certification Study Guide is tailored to meet the preparation needs of candidates taking the latest ArcGIS Desktop Professional exam, which uses the 10.5 software version.

Each comprehensive chapter covers a section of the exam and integrates the tested GIS concepts with authentic application for reinforced learning. For each exam objective, the study guide uses an easy-to-follow format:

• Prepare—topics in the ArcGIS documentation that candidates need to know for the exam;
• Practice—tasks to perform, or links to resources, including web courses, to get hands-on software practice; and
• Skills check-in—a list of tasks that candidates should be able to perform.

The Esri ArcGIS Desktop Professional Certification Study Guide points to existing resources whenever possible to ensure the book is always current and that candidates have the most relevant, up-to-date resources when preparing for the exam. Written by a senior instructor at Esri, the Esri ArcGIS Desktop Professional Certification Study Guide fulfills candidates’ need for a complete, consolidated resource to confidently master the exam and pursue GIS-related professional development.
