To ensure success in the CCNP exam, network professionals should study and answer hundreds of pre-test CCNP questions. These CCNP questions could be included in software bundles for CCNP trainings, network simulator applications, or CCNP exam simulators.
There are also free CCNP questions that could be acquired from the Internet. Some websites offer free test questions as an add-on service. These test questions usually are formatted in PDF for easy delivery.
CCNP books and training manuals also normally include CCNP question sets. Some CCNP books usually have a companion CD consisting of thousands of CCNP questions. These could be stored in computers.
CCNP questions provide an overview of the CCNP exams. Although there are no guarantees that those questions will appear during actual exam, it is still valuable as a study guide. Network professionals should also simulate actual CCNP exam conditions to effectively practice for the exams. Time pressure is a significant factor during actual exam. Examinees must practice their skills in answering questions under extreme time pressure. This would give them enough confidence during the exams thus eliminating the risk of memory block.
Answering CCNP questions can also serve as a measure to determine the strengths and weaknesses of test takers. Aspiring CCNPs can better prepare if they would know their weakness areas. This would allow them to study and focus on those areas so that when examination time comes, they can easily answer all tracks of the CCNP exams. In this way, passing the CCNP exam would be easier.
