I am considering signing up for Microsoft training through ttclive.com and I am wondering if anyone has any first hand experience with them? I can't find any reviews online. I did notice someone asked this question here in 2007 but the answer was just a clip off the website. I am looking for actual experience.

Thanks!
Alan

I looked in to them a while back, though due to budgeting purposes it never went anywhere.  At any rate, it wouldn't hurt to request a free trial.  If they are confident in their product and want a long time customer they shouldn't have an issue accommodating you.

Hi,
Actually we went ahead and purchased the pack and have been very happy with the product so far. The pre-made videos are on par or better than other training products and the live instructor led courses are so far excellent.

We'll be attempting some certifications based on the training we received and I will post results here.

THanks
Alan

Good deal.  And apologies about the reply. I didn't even look at the date of the original question.  

Still, good to hear they are working out for you.  Always good to hear peer reviews regarding training offers.

Hi Kyle,

So far so good - they have lived up to expectations with the quality of the videos and the amount and timelines of the live courses. We get emails before each round of live classes begin so that we can plan accordingly. For the price it' s a great deal.

As for the Cisco certs, we have not gone that route yet (only Microsoft so far) so I can't comment on the quality of those courses.

Thanks,
Alan

I did not get a response which was satisfactory so I went ahead and got the product. I wanted to post something to help others so I put down our experience.
