Free tests at Brainbench

It’s been a really long while since I looked at I used to take a lot of tests an even have few certificates from the early days. I even remember when it was called something else.

Anyway, today I got reminded about this huge repository of tests and certifications and I decided to check it out. Overall there are more than 600 tests that cover a large part of both practical and theoretical computer industry. Here is the list of free tests that you can take.

Just to see if I still have it I took a couple. And passed. The results weren’t as high as they could have been because I wasn’t fully focusing and I was in the middle of the noisy office, but I am satisfied anyway. Check the results below, if you are interested enough.

Perl test was the easiest. Most of the questions could be easily answered with perl interpreter, copy-paste, and a text editor.

Linux test was a bit more difficult, mainly because it was somewhat outdated.
