It wasn´t required much effort to ace the test!
It was a cakewalk to ace the test!
To ace the test was a breeze!

Of course, it´s a metaphorical usage of the expression "break sweat" that in physiology would mean: To excrete perspiration through the pores in the skin; perspire.
And this would happen for nothing, you would have to do a lot of effort, would need to get involved in any activities that require pull weight, exert a big effort, etc.
