From Global Knowledge an IT Training company

“When the conversation amongst IT professionals turns to IT Certifications,one of their first thoughts is of high salaries – dollar signs dancing in theirheads. While some certifications do command a six-figure salary, this is nottrue for all. With the recent completion of our annual IT Skills and Salaryreport, I thought it would be a great time to look at some of the more popularcertifications – and their associated pay.”

Effective Study Tips for the CCENT and CCNA Exams | Pearson IT Certification.

Many very good suggestions about exam prep. I even agree about Flash Cards. However, I think making your own is as good or better than using someone elses.


Wendell Odom’s new Cisco certification website and blog

February 16, 2012


“Simply put, this is Wendell Odom’s web site. Wendell has been a best-selling author of products for Cisco certification for over a decade, and this site gives Wendell a place to post advice and information about Cisco certifications. Much of the information on this site is related to various blog topics Wendell has posted at his Cisco Cert Zone blog at NetworkWorld.com. This site will likely morph over time as Wendell finds more topics that work better as web content rather than as a blog discussion. For example, the “Lab Gear” section of this site is an outgrowth of the somewhat regular blog topics about how to build a lab for practicing Cisco skills.”
