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!

 

The Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Exam: Insights From Those Who Have Passed

What is the hardest part about taking the PMP exam?

It’s a question that gets asked a lot. And although there are a lot of questions about obtaining a Project Management certification in general–who should consider it, does it help your career, what jobs or industries require it, etc.–all the questions get boiled down to one single concern once someone decides to pursue a PMP certification: Will I pass the test? Just how hard is it? How should I prepare?

So we asked certified project managers, people who have taken the test before and passed, what was the hardest part for them?

 

Preparing Before You Prepare

 

In my view, there are two significant challenges to earning the PMP certification:

1. Earning the required experience hours for the certification on all aspects of project work. These experience hours need to be documented in case your application is selected for an audit.

2. Completing enough practice questions and full length (200 question) practice exams.

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.
