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.
