Announcing a New Certification Resource: Skillset Facebook Groups!

We’re big on practice questions at Skillset. That’s why each of our certification practice tests has several thousand questions within it: Because practice, you may have heard, makes perfect.

But if there’s one thing we’re as enthusiastic about as practice questions, it’s discussion, feedback, and back-and-forth learning. The topic we spend the most time on, beyond writing more questions, is how to give our users more options to connect with one another, provide insights and feedback, and learn from one another.

That’s exactly why we’ve created a series of Facebook Groups specifically designed to provide motivation and discussion around certification.

For every certification practice test we provide on Skillset, we’ve created a group (and we’ll keep adding them as we add certification tests). And in each group, we’ll post one question every day. The objective being: Find your daily motivation, learn something new, and find a resource and a community to rally around as you prepare for your own big test (or as you simply stay fresh and knowledgable).

Check out (and join!) each of our groups as they relate to specific tests:

Let us know what you think, and keep an eye out for our first questions, coming up today — and every day — for you to pick over and discuss.

Happy testing!

 

Lessons Learned from 1 Million Exam Practice Questions Answered

We’ve just hit a big milestone at Skillset, which comes with a lot of reflection, advancement and realizations about the “new normal” the site has entered in 2015. It’s all very exciting and insightful, so we wanted to share our experiences publicly and transparently.

First, the milestone: As of this week, Skillset.com users have answered more than 1,000,000 questions!

That’s one million. With an ‘M’. That means that our (very dedicated) users and visitors have clicked “submit” while answering one of our thousands of certification practice questions many thousands of times per day over the last few months.

Of course, after one million sample questions answered, we’ve learned quite a bit.

 

How did we get to one million questions answered?

 

The short answer to this question is that we have more than 100,000 sample questions available, so this milestone was almost inevitable. What we didn’t expect was how quickly our users would get there.

Skillset.com users are now answering more than 10,000 questions per day. Only a few months after we launched the site in earnest, that is a truly surprising number.

The reason, however, is fairly simple: Anyone preparing to take a professional certification exam knows they need to practice. And they can (and do) practice endlessly on Skillset, while rarely seeing the same question twice.

 

Launching Skillset: A New Way to Develop Your Career

We launched Skillset.com in late 2014 with a fairly simple goal: Make it easier, faster, and more gainful to prepare for professional certifications that advance your career. Since then, we’ve added over 100,000 questions to our proprietary testing engine, and we’ve built out countless individualized skills that allow you to test yourself against them one by one—all for free.

Here at the beginning, we plan to keep adding questions, skills and resources by the truckload, of course. Providing free, up-to-date, intuitive test preparation for certifications is our guiding purpose. But we have to admit—we’re up to more than that.

We want to change the way people think about career advancement, and the way people achieve it. To do that, we need to change the way people think about education in general.

In large part, that’s what this blog is for. Not only to discuss Skillset and what you can use it for, but also to discuss the future of education. We see education as moving from a hurdle one crosses to an endeavor you never stop pursuing. We want it to move from a qualification for a job to being a part of the job. And we want the skills you acquire to stop being static claims on your resume and start being a proven, concrete framework that defines the best and most recent version of you.

Those are big claims, we know. But we aren’t just going to make claims. We’re going to prove them. That’s what we help our users do, and that’s what we believe in.
