    I've been practicing my subnetting so that I can do it really really quickly and eventually in my head. In the process I've run out of practice questions. I've done the ones from http://www.learntosubnet.com/ so does anyone know of any other good places with some subnetting exam type questions?

    Just downloaded a free trial exam from Semsim that my AVG detected a trojan in! :eek:

    When I learned this I'd just make up a lot of my own questions. I'd make up a valid IP address, put a cidr subnet mask to it, and then figure out what the network address would be. I just did things like that until it became second nature. I'd also do things like that backwards, so to speak, too. I'd use tools such as whois to find out what netblocks some of the internet domains use and then figure out if it was a /24, /20, /14 etc... subnet. I'd also make up imaginary business networks and break them up into subnets using cidr.

    I guess what I'm saying is I made up most of my own problems to figure out. It's a really cheap way to do it and it worked well for me. Your mileage may vary.

    Learntosubnet was all I needed when I was studying for the CCNA.

    I just downloaded Subnet Tutor The trial only has 3 questions but the full version (which I just bought) does quite a bit more:

    With 'Big Friday' less than 2 weeks away I've structured my revision timetable to use this for at least 20 minutes every day until the exam, definitely worth the $35 USD IMO

    I used the Boson CCNA 640-801 test three there are about 250 questions on subnetting and VLSM

    Hehe you really have been through the exact same process I'm going through, I've got Boson 1

    This is the website I was looking for when I asked the original question for anyone who's interested:

    I wouldn't stress to much about the subnetting its not nearly as hard as people make out especially the vlsm questions.

    I used to find vlsm difficult but once I did a few practice questions it became easy.
