Using Onshape to take the CWSA or CWSP certification test

Anyone used Onshape to take the CWSA or CWSP certification test.  If so, what was your experience?

    I am a CSWP and as far as I can remember you need to take it in Solidworks. I would not use Onshape for this because it is a certification of Solidworks knowledge and skills. Using another program to get certified in Solidworks is a bit like cheating.

    Here is the webpage: https://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/797_enu_html.htm

    It is a difficult test so I strongly suggest to take a course to prepare and to try the practice exam. Good luck!

    @michael_mcclain Actually I can take the CSWP and pass it just using a Google Spreadsheet, and no... it is not cheating I just don't need to use SolidWorks to answer all the questions.

    I am CSWST - Certified SolidWorks Support Technicians, CSWI - Certified SolidWorks Instructor and a few more

    @emagdalenaC2i ok I'm probably mistaken. It's been a while since I took it and I don't fully remember the format. I do still feel that using a different program for a competency test doesn't feel right, but to each his own.
