If you’re a regular reader of Intense School Resources, you may also be interested in the Skillset website. If you aren’t familiar with Skillset exam prep engine, it is worth checking out. It is a better way to assess your knowledge and improve your readiness to sit for a number of certifications. Skillset offers tens of thousands of free test questions on a variety of hot certifications, including for the CISSP, CEH, PMP, Network+, Security+, and now, the CCNA exam.

These questions are categorized into the specific skillets required for the exam (including LAN Switching, IP Addressing, Network Troubleshooting, and LAN Technologies), so you know where you are strong and where you need to study more. You can chose to drill on any single skill, or multiple skills, by creating custom tests via the test builder. Questions are further subdivided into difficulty level: beginner, intermediate and expert.

While you practice, Skillset uses a fairly accurate algorithm to determine when you are actually ready to sit for the exam. How would you like to not guess, but KNOW that you are ready to sit for an exam in advance? You can with Skillset.

Best of all, its all free. Not freemium, not almost free, not free-now-but-pay-later, but free. 

If you have a moment, give it a spin:

The CCNA section is still in beta stage, and many more questions will be added in the coming weeks, so keep checking back.
