1. After you enroll in the Microsoft Course, Instead of clicking “Begin Course” at the bottom, click “Take Course Test”. This is the way around taking the entire course and suffering through the "Next" button.
2. Once you have completed and passed the Overall course test with a 70% in it you wil then have to go back and take all the Subcourses and recieve a 70% in them as well for them to populate on your PPW.
3. As you are taking the test, then either take pictures with your phone, take notes or screen captures to see what answers you selected. If you fail to get the required 70% in each test then you can retake the test as many times as you want. If you know for a fact that some of your answers were correct then guess on those that you are unsure of. It will usually only take you two-three times of taking the test if you are remembering which answers you changed and what you put before.
4. If you are just having too much trouble actually achieving a 70% on the test, then you can just take the course and just keep clicking "Next". During the course you will be asked Questions (generally these are the questions that will be on the actual test) so make not of them, take a picture or do a screen capture.

Military Education: The fastests way to earn points for military education is through Correspondence courses, JKO, ALMS or Skill port courses. You can earn a total of 78 promotion points for SGT and 84 for SSG through online courses and hands down is the fastest and easiest of any way to gain any points. After that you will have to earn them through completing courses. After completing these courses, they are worth 1 promotion point for every 5 hours of courses taken so not bad if they are this easy to complete. Most of the courses do not take even close to the amount of time that they are idetified as. For example, you should be able to complete a 5 hour course in 10-15 minutes. The Points system changes regularly by what the Army's goal is to attempt to get Soldiers to complete and they will entice the completion of these courses by giving more points for completion of certain courses. For example The Army had a recent problem with Soldiers not completing WLC, so now a large amount of the promotion points are given to WLC graduation for this area. Generally you will receive 4 points for each 40 hour course that you complete with a DA form 87 certifying completion. The main thing here is to Volunteer for these Extra Duties and to take these Extra Duties and these Jobs and that you will be rewarded. This is the message that the Army is sending with the new promotion system.
