There is additional information you may benefit from reviewing in these following skills under the SimNet Teach Me or Show Me portions on the following topics. SimNet Technical Support says that some of the skills on our Exam are covered by the Lesson, but that there are multiple topics related that only appear in the Teach Me or Show Me portions (not the Let Me Try section). Sorry for any frustration! Please review the Teach Me/Show Me sections of SimNet Lessons for these topics, as well as completing all the Let Me Try questions for all 42 skills.

You will also need to know how to use a Validation rule, and how to create (and edit) a Form in Design view (including a Title, Logo, and Label field).

 You may also benefit from reviewing the AccessReviewQueriesAndMore.pptx .
