1. Create Your Personal Study Zone

It's easy to create your Personal Study Zone. Just visit the Assessment Exam page and select the Basic or Advanced Assessment for the Cisco Certification Exam you will be attempting next. A few moments after completing the Assessment Exam, you'll receive an e-mail scoring report and a link to your new Personal Study Zone.

At this page, you'll find your individualized Study Plan for passing the Cisco exam you will be attempting next. It will include a topic-by-topic review of your performance on the assessment exam, and also links to each of the Tutorials, Study Quizzes, and Lab Scenarios you'll need to complete during your studies.

Certification Zone Tutorials carefully explain the key technical concepts of the major topics included on Cisco's most current exam blueprints. Subscribers have unrestricted access to each Tutorial. If you're not yet a Subscriber, you can still access about 15% of each Tutorial, so that you can see for yourself the quality, scope, and value of the information they contain.

2. Subscribe to Certification Zone

To complete your Study Plan you need to become a Certification Zone Subscriber. Certification Zone offers one-month, six-month, and twelve-month subscription terms.

How long should you subscribe for? That depends on a number of factors. If you scored above 75% on your Zone Assessment Exam and you're not yet sure you plan on continuing your certification effort beyond your next scheduled Cisco certification exam, you should probably subscribe to Certification Zone one month at a time. If you did poorly on the Assessment and/or have plans to pursue higher-level Cisco certifications, then a multi-month subscription offers you the most value.

Keep in mind that your satisfaction as a multi-month Certification Zone Subscriber is guaranteed. If you subscribe for more than one month and discover you're not more than completely satisfied with what the site offers, you can cancel your subscription at any time and we'll promptly refund the value of the unused portion of your subscription.

3. Complete Your Personal Study Plan

Certification Zone's self-study methodology is a proven four-step learning approach that incorporates explanation, review, application, and comprehensive testing.

Each exam topic is explained with Tutorials written by industry experts. Once you've read a Tutorial, you take a Study Quiz to help you review the material and make sure you understand what you've read. Your most recent scores on Study Quizzes are posted at your Personal Study Zone, and you don't move on to the next Tutorial until you've passed the Study Quiz for the Tutorial you've just completed.

Hands-on practice is critical to the Cisco exam-preparation process, and you get plenty of it as a Certification Zone Subscriber. By completing the Lab Scenarios we include for each appropriate exam topic, you prepare yourself to apply what you've learned to real-world networking applications.

4. Pass the Zone's Practice Exam

Once you've completed your Study Plan, it is time to attempt Certification Zone's full-length, multi-topic Practice Exam. Pass the Practice Exam three consecutive times and you're ready to pass the real-life Cisco test!

"Certification Zone has been very beneficial to my studies...the Zone's in-depth explanations are sometimes better than those found in Cisco's own manuals. "
