Many of us designers think we know programming, however there is only one true way to check: by testing. When you test yourself, you will know just how well you know a certain area of programming / coding, so you can improve on what you already know.
There is a service from Tests for Geeks that allows you to do just that. This service is great for those of us who simply want to test our own skills, and it is also great for anyone who is considering hiring a web developer on a full-time basis (I am not talking about an occasional project for a website, but more along the lines of permanent hire). Let us look at Tests for Geeks and see how it works for those of us who want to test our own skills.
The HTML & CSS test has a total of 40 HTML 4.01 and CSS 2.1 questions and includes testing how well you know fonts, HTML tags such as div, paragraph, a link, input, select, form and table. It also includes testing for CSS properties and values, css rule priorities, cascading and inheritance. And finally, it includes testing how well you know layouts, selects and the box model.
After you choose a test, click on the “Pass test by Myself” button.
