Skip to quiz: If you feel comfortable that you can answer the multiple-choice questions at the end of a lesson without watching the video, you can skip the material (by clicking the skip to quiz button) and go directly to the quiz.
But use this option with caution because you can do this only once per lesson. This means that if you click the skip to quiz button and don’t manage to pass the quiz, you’ll need to complete all lessons in the module in order to access the quiz again.
To access the final exam you need to complete all modules: While you can take the different lessons in any order you want, to get to the final exam, you have to complete all modules and quizzes.
There is no time limit: You can go through the material at your own pace. There is no time limit or limitation as to the number of times you can go through a lesson or assessment.

Is Google Digital Marketing Exam Hard?
The Google digital marketing exam is not hard to pass. It’s a beginner-level exam and all questions are easy, provided that you have gone through all course modules and watched the video lessons.
The exam questions are straightforward and not difficult for someone that knows the basics of digital marketing.
What To Do After Passing The Exam?
Passing the Google digital marketing exam does not make you a digital marketing expert. In order to make a successful career in digital marketing, you need to gain hands-on experience with all digital marketing topics.
The Google Digital Marketing course is great for beginners but it’s theoretical. To gain practical skills, you need to start using digital marketing on your own website or get an entry-level job.
That’s the only way to understand how digital marketing actually works and what it really takes to use the different techniques you’ll learn in a course, to increase traffic to a website and make more sales.
You can also consider expanding your skills by following a Google professional certification course.
Google offers various Google Ads courses through Google Skillshop that are great for building your Google PPC skills and obtaining an additional certificate to enrich your resume.
