Hello,

I am pursuing CCNP. I need some advice to choose the learning videos Trainsignalor CBT Nuggets. Which can give knowledge and hands on labs.

Thanks

CBTs.... only because of Jeremy Cioara.

Usually, one tends to feel sleepy while taking computer based trainings. Also, you may start loosing interest due to monotonous nature of CBTs.

Trust us (whoever is supporting Jeremy), you will NEVER get bored and may feel you are in a classroom based instructor lead training and not a CBT.

He is truly a LEGEND. The way he sets examples (humor) and relates them exceptionally well to the topic is something that other trainers are not good at.

Again, keep in mind, CBTs are monotonous, half duplex (lol) you cannot talk, only the trainer can, and this behavior will usually reduce one's interest in the subject. So, Jeremy's INTERACTIVE session comes into play and helps keep us active and ATTENTIVE.

** This is just my opinion for Jeremy the LEGEND

I am currently studying for the ROUTE exam and prefer the INE videos instead of the other two. Here is a discussion from another site I visit daily that gives some good opinions on this exact question:

I'm a big fan of CBT nuggets been using them for years. The trainers are all well spoken and they always explain that you know exactly what they are talking about.

They don't have a lab environment that I am aware of.

And for me their material is always up to date with any change.

Who doesn't love Jeremy (CBT). No way I would have gotten my CCNP without him. I also like INE for my CCIE studies, but Jeremy definitely kept my attention much better. INE has a drug-like effect on me. I seem to instantly get sleepy once I start listening to them. Ha!

Here's a +1 for Jeremy.  The guy is a ledge :-)

Seriously though, CBT Nuggets are excellent for CCNP studies and Jeremy explains concepts really thoroughly in a way you can understand without getting bored easily.

How about INE Brian Mcgrahan I heard a lot about him? What do say experts?

Each trainer has his own unique why of teaching it's the same as back in the day when we attended varsity/school each teacher/school was different, it's personal preference.

Look for demos and use that which draws you..

My personal opinion, I really enjoy cbt.. Other will enjoy something else..

Brian is great. He just doesn't maintain my attention like Jeremy did from CBT. Regardless,  I still use INE since I think they are better than IP Expert.

I think I will go for CBT Nuggets as I have recieved many good feedback about it.

Also I have also came across the gns3vault.com. The author of website is Rene Molenaar. The author has written books How to Master CCNP ( Route,Switch and Tshoot). They topics are so easy to understand and amazing examples

I will go for CBT and Rene's books.
