We organize courses in two categories: Computer Science (CS) and Information Technology (IT). Each course has one main page with links to video lectures, articles and external references. Our courses are informative and light-weight. You can follow one course in less then a week. We do not have homework and you study in your own pace.
|CSE||Engineering||Introductory course into computer science, programming methodology and software design.|
|CSP||Programming||Intermediate course for computer programming. Learn syntax from tutorials and examples.|
|CSD||Databases||Learn to design data-centric applications using relational and non relational databases.|
|ITH||Hardware||Learn how to repair, upgrade and assemble a new personal computer.|
|ITP||Platforms||Learn about operating systems. How to install and maintain an operating system for your desktop PC.|
At the end of the exam you can register your rating into the leader-board. You can record a new score every day if you repeat the exam. If you wish to remove your rating from public display you must submit a support ticket. Even if you remove your user, the exam records are not erased.
We estimate 5 rating levels depending on your score. If you have a score lower then 50% you are considered not prepared and you fail the exam. Novice title is not actually granted to any member. All freelancers members are considered Novice until they pass the exams.
