I currently have the Samsung Galaxy S8, and looking through the apps that came installed on my phone, I didn’t have Office 365, nor was it available as a ‘whole’ in the Google Play Store. I had to individually install each office app, as shown below. Once installed, when accessing a file, such as a Word Docx, my phone then prompts me to choose between the default app installed, which is Hancom Office Editor, or the newly installed Microsoft Office app. Be aware that once you choose which app you want the document to open with, it is then the default, and you would need to go into Settings and locate the app that you want to make changes to: Locate and click the Default area: You will then find the option to Clear Defaults This will allow you to choose a different app/program the next time you open a document, if need be.

The first thing to preparing for the certification test is make sure to have some ground rules like learning the basics, practice tests, courses that teach this subject. First rule is taking the Network+ course, this course will teach you what you need to know and also give you hands-on experience.
