RPG III Assessment


RPG III Assessment

Skills Assessment

RPG (Report Program Generator) is a computer programming language produced by IBM in 1965 for easy production of sophisticated large system reports. This language has evolved over the years with RPG II, RPG III, RPG/400 and RPGIV for the IBM AS/400. IBM AS/400 is a midrange computer system used primarily for running business applications for small to mid-sized companies. RPG and COBOL are the common languages used for writing applications for the AS/400. This test is designed to evaluate a programmer's knowledge of RPG II and RPG III, and could also be used to test a person's knowledge of RPG/400.

Tests for CICS/COBOL, COBOL for Year 2000 and COBOL II are also available.
