What is the Web Design Skills Test?

As stated on the Web Design Skills Certification website, this is a national certification for all people involved with the web. At this time, it is the only national certification in the web-related field. 1 to 3 levels are available, and according to the Royal Road of Qualifications, the pass rate is 60 for level 3 %、1級で23%.

I got my Level 3 in July and am studying for Level 2 in September. One week to go, what can I do now?

In the meantime, there is an official reference book out there, so I bought it and read it from the beginning. The content is thin, but it's good because it's a fairly comprehensive introduction to the history of the web, legal affairs, security, etc. In terms of usage, I recommend that you look up words or genres you don't understand online with this book in hand.
