I have taken my fair share of technical exams for career certification. For Cisco I’ve taken the CCNA, CCDA, CCNP, and CCIE, plus numerous other exams including the PIX and content engine exams. Prior to Cisco I took the Microsoft exams and had my MCSE. And still before that was Novell when I took the CNA exam. Almost every time I took one of these exams I would prepare by reading a book on the related topic and buy a practice exam.
In the old days it was Transcender. I used Transcender exams faithfully to pass both the Novell and Microsoft exams. Then later when I started my Cisco training it was Boson. Boson was really great up until a point. Then no too long ago they’ve seemed to slip away. They are now being surpassed by the likes of TestKing and Pass4Sure.
Which is better Pass4Sure or TestKing?
I tried both TestKing and Pass4Sure exams to help me study. I have to say between the two I think Pass4Sure is the better test, but just barely. I recently took a CCIE bootcamp at CCBootCamp – see the post Getting Excellent Training for the CCIE. During and after the class I used both the CCIE Pass4Sure exam and the TestKing exam to gauge my knowledge. I’m sure glad I did. Even though I knew the material, the exam questions were worded in a very tricky way. These tests got me over that last hump and I easily passed the CCIE written exam.
One of my coworkers was studying for his CCNP. He had his CCNA and was a really sharp engineer. However every time he would go take the BCSI exam he would fail. He took the thing 3 times and every time he failed. Now you might be saying geese – what a dumb guy. But honestly the questions are never cut and dry. I recommended that he get either the TestKing or Pass4Sure exam to help him study. He bought one and took the BCSI exam one last time. Needless to say he passed with flying colors.
There’s all kinds of rumors that float around about some of the newer exams. Rumors of guys sitting around in a testing facility in India or China to essentially copy the test. I don’t know for certain if this is true. I do know that the Pass4Sure practice exam is damn close to the real thing.
The Results? Using either Pass4Sure or TestKing will help you pass
In the end both test are fantastic. We liked Pass4Sure a bit better but only slightly. The content in both products provides exactly what you need to pass. If you want to pass your next Cisco exam, give Pass4Sure or TestKing a try. You will pass!
