My last post on this subject
was almost a year and a half ago. And, in that time, I have not found a better choice for Cisco instruction than Chris Bryant. In fact, things have only gotten better for those with aspirations of becoming certified networking professionals. Indeed, Chris Bryant has partnered with Train Signal
to produce, in my opinion, the best Cisco training available today. Period.
The CCNP training, for example, consists of 3 separate courses: BSCI, BCMSN & ONT. Each course contains 2 DVDs, which provide you with both the theory and application of that theory. From the moment you play that first DVD, you are instantly engaged by Chris Bryant's warmth and "Southern Hospitality." The whiteboard lessons are clear, concise and to-the-point; printing them out makes for an excellent guide.
Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the training is the feeling that Chris Bryant is actually in the room with you at that very moment. During the lab sections of the video, where Chris Bryant connects into real switches to demonstrate the concepts he has just discussed, you can actually hear him typing away at the keyboard in the background. And, further emphasizing my point above that you feel as though Chris Bryant is there with you, he occasionally "fat fingers" a command and has to backspace - this is what happens in the real world and you are watching it live!
Whether you need to brush up your Cisco skills to study for certifications, or to help you get a better understanding of what you are doing at work day-to-day, Train Signal
will get you to your destination.
