I’m sure you are surprised to know that passing some Cisco certifications happens to be both a personal and professional goal for me in 2012. In order to achieve that goal I started looking around for additional training materials. Yesterday I happened to notice that Cisco was having an Earth Day sale. The terms of the deal were decent. If you buy 3 or more items, then you are eligible to save 50% off the total price. Given that I had wanted to acquire a Cisco simulator this seemed like my best chance.
I purchased the following products from the Cisco Press:
- CCNA Voice 640-461 Official Cert Guide, Premium Edition eBook and Practice Test
- CCENT 640-822 Network Simulator, Download Version
- CCENT/CCNA ICND1 640-822 Official Cert Guide, Premium Edition eBook and Practice Test
- CCNA ICND2 640-816 Official Cert Guide, Premium Edition eBook and Practice Test
Before you start criticizing my selections or the Cisco exam path that I have chosen please consider for a moment that I purchased the ICND1 and ICND2 exam packages intentionally. I fully intend to read both certification guides before deciding if I want to take the CCENT and CCNA exams separately or together.
