Subnetting: 10-Question Practice Exam
Subnetting is a foundational skill that you'll find on the CCENT, CCNA, and even the Network+. Unlike the other five practice exams in this Gut Check Assessment series, subnetting isn't going away. Nine Cisco exams may be retiring, but subnetting is here to stay.
Try these 10 subnetting questions after you watch Keith Barker's subnetting training to see how you're doing with one of the most important skills you'll learn.
