Before taking the AdWords exams, Google recommend that you have on-the-job experience using AdWords. You should be familiar with online advertising concepts and best practices, and should have experience managing different types of AdWords campaigns.
For each exam, Google offer study guides that are available here, in the Partners Help Center. The study guides cover the different topics each of the exams tests on.
