Ed TittelThose Seeking Cisco Certs Should Mind Their Study/Learn Master List

Over the years, it's been interesting to watch the Cisco Learning Center grow and evolve to better meet the needs of IT professionals pursuing that company's often-coveted certification credentials. Of all the many things that Cisco does right with its cert programs, the company's "Study/Learn Master List" is second to none when it comes to helping interested parties find their way to the right exams, objectives, training, and study/prep materials. If you don't know about this already, you should; if you do know about it, you might want to head back to give it another look, as numerous exams have been (or will be) updated or replaced in the very near future.

Ed TittelNew CCNP Exam Prep Materials On Their Way

A new crop of CCNP exams is available, and the old crop is on its way out. Although Pearson doesn't yet have finished books available for the latest collection of such exams, they're on their way to print by the end of 2014. But all of them already offer so-called "Rough Cuts" -- online versions immediately accessible for those early adopters (such as developers, instructors, Cisco partners, or others who typically jump on the cert bandwagon sooner rather than later) who need them before print editions come off the presses in late November, 2014.
