About Certification Zone

Learn more about Certification Zone and how we can help you prepare for the Microsoft certification exams

Certification Zone has been helping networking professionals expand their expertise and helping them pass Cisco CCNA™, CCNP™, and CCIE™ certification exams since this site first went live in October, 1999. In 2003, the scope of the site was expanded to address the topics IT professionals must master to earn the Microsoft MCSA™ and MCSE™ certifications for Windows 2000/2003 as well as the Field Certified Professionals Association's Windows 2000/2003 FCSA, and FCSE certifications.

Unlike competitive products that try to teach you how to pass specific tests with just question dumps or simulations, Certification Zone focuses on helping our users make sure they understand the concepts and technologies they will be tested on.

Certification Zone finds and contracts with experts in the topics included on the current exam blueprints maintained by Cisco and Microsoft. In addition to being certified by Cisco or Microsoft, Certification Zone Contributors also have extensive hands-on experience applying their expertise in these topics to real-world networking applications.

The goal of each Certification Zone contributor is to provide you with the information and tools you need to:

  • understand the key technical concepts and skills covered on a specific exam
  • assess your knowledge level of these concepts and skills with written questions
  • assess your ability to apply your knowledge of these concepts and skills to a real-world networking scenario

To accomplish these goals, Certification Zone utilizes the following tools:

  • Tutorials - comprehensive, yet succinct explanations of key technical concepts. Certification Zone experts write each Tutorial to be as concise and reader friendly as possible.

  • Study Quizzes - assess understanding of concepts and skills overviewed and explained in each Tutorial. Zone experts write the questions on these Quizzes to closely resemble those found on the actual Microsoft exams. Each question includes the correct answer and a complete explanation to help users develop a thorough understanding of the question's topic.

  • Lab Scenarios - apply technical concepts to simulations dealing with a particular topic. Certification Zone's online Lab Scenarios prepare users for both the simulation-type questions now popular on certification exams as well as scenarios found in real world networking applications.

  • Personal Mentoring - If Certification Zone users wish to accelerate their learning and exam preparation efforts, Personal Mentoring is available from our site's highly trained and highly skilled technical contributors.
