Through our partnership with Practice Labs, we now offer a comprehensive certification exam preparation solution for many of our CompTIA titles. The solution combines both the hands on practical elements as well as practice exam features, giving the learner the best chance of succeeding in gaining the certifications they want.
All Practice Exams are developed by subject matter experts who have successfully passed the certification exam. Their job is to design practice questions that make sure learners have the skills and knowledge necessary to confidently pass the exams themselves.
To ensure the accuracy, quality, and objective coverage of our CompTIA exam prep tiles these have been submitted for CompTIA Approved Quality Content (CAQC) review.
The following modes are available for learner practice:
Learn Mode - students can focus on a single objective or many. Each question offers the opportunity to see both the answer and an explanation.
Exam Mode - it’s like you’re taking a test. All results are tracked for each user, so students can measure their progress over time.
