CBT Nuggets in the Land Down Under!

August 22, 2013 at 7:49 pm

Monica, a CBT Nuggets team member, hosted a meetup earlier this week in Sydney, Australia. A small but diverse crowd — including a Cisco employee and a member of the Australian government – hung out and talked IT.


Here are some of Monica’s observations:

  • IT-specific topics of conversation included CISSP, SDN, CMNA, Sophos, CCIE, and Nexus and DC training.

  • The general consensus among the group was that CBT Nuggets is a valuable resource because it’s a timesaver. An example: once you have a job, it’s hard to find time to take an IT class. So being able to search for a topic and watch Nuggets/MicroNuggets is very beneficial.

Monica said that the most memorable part about the evening was seeing the attendees interact with each other, especially when they exchanged contact information and picked out some CBT Nuggets swag!

Finally! A Solution in Cisco Practice Exams We Can Trust!

April 6, 2013 at 2:28 pm

If  you’re like me, you are incredibly frustrated by the practice exam market for Cisco Certifications. It seems like there are only two options out there:

  • Illegal and error-filled “brain-dump” materials
  • Over-priced legal materials that are also error-filled or do not adequately map to the exams official objectives

I was speaking with my dear friend and fellow Cisco Press author Kevin Wallace about this and he shared with me some very exciting news. His excellent Web site – 1ExamAMonth.com is going to start realeasing practice exams that we can afford, and that we can trust.

His site will start with an exam that many readers will be excited about – 640-911 DCICN – Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking. This exam will go live at his site on Tuesday, April 9, 2013.

I am so excited for this for the Cisco Certification community.
