Exam Syllabus

Operations using Data Types and Operators

  • Evaluate expressions to identify the data type Python assigns to variables:
    str, int, float, and bool

    Data type conversion, indexing, slicing, construct data structures, lists, list operations

  • Determine the sequence of execution based on operator precedence:
    Assignment, comparison, logical, arithmetic, identity (is), containment (in)

  • Select operators to achieve the intended result:
    Assignment, comparison, logical, arithmetic, identity (is), containment (in)

Flow Control with Decisions and Loops

  • Construct and analyze code segments that use branching statements:
    if, elif, else, nested and compound conditional expressions

  • Construct and analyze code segments that perform iteration:
    while, for, break, continue, pass, nested loops, loops that include compound conditional expressions

Input and Output Operations

  • Construct and analyze code segments that perform file input and output operations:
    open, close, read, write, append, check existence, delete, with statement

  • Construct and analyze code segments that perform console input and output operations:
    Read input from console, print formatted text (string.format() method, f-String method), use command-line arguments

Code Documentation and Structure

  • Document code segments:
    Use indentation, white space, comments, and documentation strings; generate documentation by using pydoc

    Call signatures, default values, return, def, pass

Troubleshooting and Error Handling

  • Analyze, detect, and fix code segments that have errors:
    Syntax errors, logic errors, runtime errors

  • Analyze and construct code segments that handle exceptions:
    try, except, else, finally, raise

  • Perform unit testing
    Unittest, functions, methods, and assert methods (assertIsInstance, assertEqual, assertTrue, assertIs, assertIn)

Operations using Modules and Tools

  • Perform basic file system and command-line operations by using built-in modules:
    io, os, os.path, sys (importing modules, opening, reading and writing files, command-line arguments)

  • Solve complex computing problems by using built-in modules:
    Math (fabs, ceil, floor, trunc, fmod, frexp, nan, isnan, sqrt, isqrt, pow, pi) datetime (now, strftime, weekday), random (randrange, randint, random, shuffle, choice, sample)

Why learn Python?

Python is easy to learn. The syntax is simple and the code is very readable. With Python, you can write programs in fewer lines of code than with most other programming languages. The popularity of Python is growing rapidly. It is now one of the most popular programming languages. Python has a wide variety of applications. It is used for automation, web application development, artificial intelligence, data science and so on:


Python can make life easier by automating many tasks, such as scraping a website to collect data, automating test cases in software development, or automating everyday office tasks. Python can easily access and read all kinds of files, which opens up the possibility of saving a lot of time by automating repetitive tasks.

Web Development

Python is a good choice for rapid web application development. With many frameworks like Django, Pyramid, and Flask, you can develop web applications with great speed using Python. Python is used on the server side of web development. You can use Python to interact with database and create RESTful API services.

Artificial Intelligence

The near future will be the era of artificial intelligence. In the past, computers and machines were used to perform mathematical calculations at very high speeds, but now many large organizations and researchers are working to develop intelligent systems that can perform tasks like a human. To some extent, machines are able to understand human emotions and their natural language. They can mimic certain human actions that were not possible before. Again, Python is very popular for developing AI systems.

Data Science

Earlier, Python was mainly used to build applications and write scripts to automate tasks, but now a brand new trend of data science has given Python an even bigger boost. Data scientists are heavily dependent on Python because it is so simple, has a large community, and can perform huge calculations with ease.

Python is being used in a wide variety of fields, and there are no signs that this trend is coming to a halt. It's safe to say that Python is here to stay for the long haul in this ever-changing and evolving IT industry.

Cord, Thank you for this collection of prep-test questions. I took that test today and passed with 94. 75% of the questions were in the test.
March 4, 2022
Awesome course that offers great explanation! Just passed my MTA98-381 with 93%. This prep course definitely helped me refresh all the important concepts to pass the test.

I have cleared (with score 81) the "Python Certification Exam Microsoft 98-381". All questions are of these type only, of course few questions are from these as well. The explanation for every question is very good. By practicing these Practice tests, I am able to clear it out. Thank you very much Cord Mählmann for all the efforts you kept in.

I just earned my "PCAP-31-03 – Certified Associate in Python Programming". The material presented here helped me prepare for the exam and to clarify many concepts. Thank you Cord Mählmann for always answering my questions and for the important information you have put together in this material. Best Regards. Diego

Sir, i enrolled this course to prepare for the PCAP or PCEP exam. Can you please share a voucher for these courses.
July 26, 2021
I used these practice tests along with the free study material from to pass the PCAP exam. I got a 93% :). These practice tests are pretty good and helped identify specific areas I needed to focus my studies on. Thank you!!
July 11, 2021
The course is really good so far and helpful to learn the concepts very clearly. However, I do have a humble suggestion and also a question. Suggestion: The review answers indicate the similar question to be referenced, but it would be more helpful if you can send the link of the other related question for easy navigation Question: While reviewing the answers on "Data Types" topic, you have the below comments for one of the responses. ....... ....... (There are similar questions Q509 and Q648.) However, the question bank has only 6 practice tests with 74 questions in each section, so trying to find our what question 509 and 648 is referring to. Is there a new version of your practice exam with additional questions? I bought this from udemy a few months back
June 28, 2021
Passed both the MTA 98-381 and PCAP exams. I practised with these questions to test myself. I would say maybe there's a bit more questions needed for PCAP material but overall great. Thank You
June 16, 2021
The tests struck me as keyed to different levels of certification. But they were good practice and I achieve the level for which I tested.
June 10, 2021
Amazing set of questions and detailed explanations. Very good resource. Was very helpful when i was preparing for PCAP-31-03.
May 29, 2021
I loved these practice tests and I think everyone should take this course who wants to get certified in Python.
May 27, 2021
This course is really great. I absolutely recommend it because it helped me a lot to pass the Microsoft MTA 98-381 exam. Thank you very much!
April 17, 2021
Absolutely great course, above expectations as the questions helped one to revise all the theory in a very intelligent way! Thank you very much!
March 28, 2021
I am very pleased with the comprehensiveness with which the instructor explains the solutions to the questions. Definitely 5 stars!
March 28, 2021
Great exam preparation course with realistic questions and therefore a thorough source of knowledge. I love question/problem based learning, where I am guided to find the solution myself. There is still an extended explanation, but I like that this course makes you think about the problems first and provides the solutions and explanations after that. If you complete all the practice tests, you'll have a profound understanding of Python, giving you the capability to easily pass the exams and also understand and write complex code. Even if you're not taking an exam, this course provides you with a well rounded set of skills for the Python programming language and is definitely worth doing, if you want to learn and work with Python.
