Testout.com reviews

This website seems pretty amazing, I am using the 7 day trial right now.

Video learning incorporated with some text, quizzes and tests and labs.

Anyone use this before?

    I have used it, but found it incredibly boring. Maybe it was the instructor...I haven't tried it in awhile, so I am curious if they have improved or not.

    Yes my school uses TestOut for their Intro To Networking class and Computer/Network Security class. It can be rather boring. We used to have fun with one of the instructors, Rob Tracy.

    Robb Tracy is a legend. I use it for the linux pro. I love him.

    I really like newer Testout courses. They are a great study aid in preparing for exams. However they can be tedious and boring at times.

    Yea Robb Tracy is one of the premier cats in regards to Linux certs... We've used them at school. I mean they are ok. Like others have said, kinda boring. They overwhelm you with a lot at one time. However, I will say that if you need to pass the class and not pay attention to the info, its very easy to get around and just do that. You won't learn anything doing it that way obviously.

    I think TestOut is great, like others have said, its integrated into many university courses.
    I've used it for 70-410 and 70-411.

    the lab simulations are great and worth its price alone.

    I got 7 days trial in the past. Liked their lab, I am whats not to like, you can configure things on the go. Regarding the material, I found it too broad, too many unnecessary things, the videos were nothing special and for the price... big no... ITpro.tv is much better for the bucks.

    I used it for A+ and a bit of CCNA stuff back in the day (pre-2010). I honestly didn't know they were still around.

    I found testout to be HORRIBLE and wouldn't wish their service on my worst enemy. icon_cheers.gif

    Used it to study for Net+ .. found the labs helpful. I tried it for Sec+ but I was less than impressed.
