    I would say that most of those sites are great but you won't pass the exams with just videos alone. They should be used as a secondary resource on top of a study guide/book

    +1 to what Iristheangel said. Definitely read a book, then add video training. My personal would be CBT Nuggets.

    As for the books, take each of the MS exams 70-410,411,412,413,414 and plug them into Amazon.com. The MS Press books are what you want to look for.

    I personally recommend Plural Sight. But not for all exams. Few of those tuts are world class

    1. It depends on the instructor
    2. It depends on your learning style.
    3. Unfortunately, videos alone for the majority of any certification needs a book or additional supplemental material

    PluralSight - Quality and in-depth lessons
    Infinite Skills (which are on Udemy too) - Middle ground - not as good as PluralSight but not as bad as most.

    IMHO, CBT Nuggets' material is lacking in many critical areas (ie. Mobility+ videos only covered 50% of exam objectives; RedHat is pretty bad; CCNA wasn't bad though)

    As people have said, it takes a combination of videos, print resources and other online sites to really be prepared. Sometimes, one instructor can be night and day different from another while teaching the same material.

    Lynda.com is great resource for tutorials but i think live tutor can explain things better. You can't ask questions in tutorials videos. There are tons of online tutoring offer online tuition at hourly based. Some of them offer complete course package but it depend on individual if he/she needs tuition for particular topic or complete course.

    As others have said no video will give you 100% of the information that you will need to pass an exam. For MS exams i've used online videos, books and technet articles. I would venture to estimate only about 60% of exam material is ever in one location (the exception being online articles b/c you can google everything).

    1. CBT Nuggets
    2. Pluralsight

    I have a subscription to pluralsight but they do a poor job IMO of keeping their data current. For my VMware certification all of their material at the time was on 5.1 even though i was looking for 5.5 material. I think they only had one or two video's on 5.5 stuff. Same with MCSA, the MS exam material was all on version 1 stuff and lacked the new information. They did add a supplemental video but only one or two to cover the added stuff in R2.

    No exposure to CBT but Pluralsight is very detailed for VMWare.

    I cannot stress this enough. I have made this mistake before.

    I have used Udemy (Chris Bryant) and CBT Nuggets. Both of which I would recommend.
