TrainSignal

So after watching Chris Bryant (CCIE) / TrainSignal BCMSN videos I must say I am not very impressed with the level of detail. Maybe it's the fact that I have been reading "Cisco LAN Switching - CCIE Professional Development". I have found a couple errors in his videos (so far) and sometimes he will show something but not explain how it happened or how to change it. I would highly recommend supplementing his videos in with a book or Cisco docs. He does do a good job of presenting the theory he does explain, and uses real cisco equipment.

BTW, anyone else get a laugh out of this "Welcome to TrainSignal, I am Chris Bryant CCIE #12933" at the start of every video?? lol!

    I love trainsignal, but I would definitely never use it as my sole training material. I always try to have 3-4 references per exam, and of course triple that for the IE icon_wink.gif

    That is true, you don't realize how good the books are until you read another book.

    I have also pretty much finished my BSCI book collection, I have Doyle Vol 1&2, along with Halabi and the CCNP Self-Study by Paquet/Teare if I need it!

    I agree with MrD! Trainsignal are the best CBT's available for the CCNP.

    I tried CBT nuggets for BSCI but that instructor is absolutely horrible icon_evil.gif
    I might try their CBT for BCMSN mostly because the instructor is the same guy from their CCNA videos.

    The Doyle books are smart though icon_thumright.gificon_thumright.gif

    Personally, I think all CBT video courses should be considered supplimental to other material, such as books and classes. In most cases, like with CBT Nuggets and TrainSignal, the videos give you an overview. For the most part, I've found that videos like that give me either a good "quick and dirty overview" before I start reading the book, or they give me a good review after I'm done reading.

    I don't know. . . I would probably just have my CCIE number tattooed on a random place of my body. (Which means that employers run the serious risk of me dropping my pants when they ask me for my qualifications.) icon_cool.gif

    lol....He does do a good job. I just watched multicasting which I struggled with on the Cisco docs but he clarified what I was confused about. I keep forgetting with his videos is that they are JUST enough to get you through the exam thats it. Reminds me of Todd Lammles CCNA book.
