There are many study guides available for certification exams, however many costs almost a hundred dollars for a book. They may not be very well known, but there are a variety of alternatives available that will teach you exactly what you need to know to pass some of these exams. In particular, I’d like to introduce you to Gns3valt, who provides study materials for the Cisco CCNA, CCNP and CCIE exams.
This is more than a study guide. Many of these exams are performance-based, and even the ones that aren’t cover material that you would learn best by doing. In all of my classes, I personally have virtual or in-class labs that make the material much easier to comprehend, because it’s similar to working in the real world.
The best part is that all of the labs are FREE if you buy one of their eBooks, which costs $25 at most. Titles include How to Master CCNP TSHOOT, How to Master CCNP ROUTE, How to Master CCNP Switch, How to Master CCNA R&S and more.
