Each course takes about one hour to be completed and after the completion of each course you will earn a certificate of completion to show it off on your CV. Note that this certificate of completion is not the GAIQ certificate we are talking about. After completing the two courses, you will have the required knowledge to enter the GAIQ exam and get certified.

The GAIQ exam consists of 70 MCQ questions, should be done in 90 minutes, and the passing score is 80%. If you didn’t pass the exam, you can retake it after 24 hours and there is no limited number of trials for retaking the exam. So the good news is that you can retake it as many times as you want until you pass and get certified and also the exam is free of charge. The certificate will expire after 18 months so you will need to retake the exam again after a year and a half.

How can I pass the GAIQ exam in less than a week?

First, you should go through the two courses mentioned above as they will provide you with the knowledge you will need to master Google Analytics.
