Preparations for 70-448 exam [20 Aug 2009|02:07pm]

australopitech
Hi, guys,

Some when long, long time ago, when Windows NT 4.0 was a modern system, there were books that contained absolutely all questions (with answers) that people could meet at Microsoft certification exams. For example exam contains 200 questions that are selected random way by computer from 1000 possible questions prepared by Microsoft team, in this case it was possible to find all that 1000 questions in mentioned books. Don’t you know if in our times there are such a books?

I saw site Selftestsoftware.com (that is even recommended by Microsoft), but as I guess set of questions in these self testing materials don’t intersect (or intersect very few) with sets of questions at official exams. 

Thnx!

Finding Training Providers For CompTIA Certifications [28 May 2009|06:51pm]

madamealexis
I looked up CLA training providers near me to receive instruction for my CompTIA classes and exam. http://certification.comptia.org/default.aspx

It came up with New Horizons Computer Learning Centers Inc. and TechSkills - San Antonio

I Googled both of them and they have complaints like all hell!

TechSkills Complaints: http://www.complaintsboard.com/bycompany/techskills-a198.html

New Horizons Complaints: http://www.complaintsboard.com/bycompany/new-horizons-computer-learning-center-a126916.html

http://www.techexams.net/forums/general-certification/15577-new-horizons-vs-techskills.html

I can not put in the time to go to a regular college to get my training and certifications. I have had hands on training building computers but my mentor has recently died so I am on my own learning the OS's and Networking. I want both A+ and Network+ for now and later I will decide from there.

New Horizons sent me a brochure in the mail but TechSkills calls me almost every week and sent a few emails. It's like a hard sell with them. I hear New Horizons does not really teach you. It's more like lectures for 5 days. I don't want boot camp training unless an employer is paying for it and it's something I am sure I would pass anyway.

Has anyone had any experience with New Horizons or TechSkills?

Later I may consider one of these: MCDBA, MCSA, MCITP.

Has anyone had any experiences with these schools or have any suggestions on how to just take the exams?

Yesterday I purchased the CCDE quick-reference guide from CiscoPress.
With the following three items:

1. CCDE Quick Reference
2. Optimal Routing Design
3. CCBOOTCAMP's CCDE Written Exam Study Guide

I hope to pass the CCDE sometime in the next few months. I see a lot of flash cards in the future.

I've been talking about this for a while, but now I must re-cert my CCIE and frankly I am bored with studying the same thing over and over again....

Hello;

The company I am working for is paying for CCNA training for me in the middle of July. They are also paying for other training of my choosing. Basically, we're going through a merger and my manager doesn't know if our department will exist after it so he's pushing as much training as he can approve through the system for us.

If I want to move from the help desk/administration/account creation and deletion/system building position I'm in and get started at the entry level in Cisco networking, what other certs would you suggest I go for? I took a Cisco class as part of a package with my other training, but life got crazy and I didn't take the test. I'm hoping the prior experience will make the boot camp easier. I really loved working with Cisco hardware last time and am looking forward to doing it again. I have A+, Network+, and some MCP certs, though I don't actually have an MCSA. Maybe I should look at that?

Thanks in advance for the advice.

I am preparing to take the Cisco 642-812 BCMSN cert and I am looking for suggestions for a good place for study guides and exam prep software. I would like software that is fairly up to date and has Cisco-like simulation examples to help prepare me for the actual test. Any suggestions?

Ethical hacking certification offered by McAfee [24 Apr 2008|11:04am]

madamealexis
A division of McAfee is teaching IT professionals how to think like hackers and attack their own networks in a new course that lets network managers earn a popular certification for ethical hacking.

McAfee’s Foundstone Professional Services is responding to a market need by offering the Certified Ethical Hacking course, says Bill Hau, the head of Foundstone, noting that clients have been asking McAfee to provide this certification.

The course started this year and teaches students how perimeter defenses work, how intruders scan networks and escalate privileges, and what steps can be taken to secure a network. Social engineering, DDoS attacks, buffer overflows, virus creation and intrusion detection are among the covered topics.

Foundstone’s course is based on standards and guidelines from the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants’ (EC-Council), which created the Certified Ethical Hacker exam certification.

MCSE Prep [28 Mar 2008|09:37am]

einzelgaenger
I was a Windows Server Admin for 5yrs while I was in the military. I have since got out, but I am stuck doing desktop tech work because everyone seems to care more about a certification instead of experience. So I decided I need to crack down and get my MCSE, but have a few questions.

I am not really interested in boot camps because 1) I can't find much in the Seattle area and 2) I don't really have the money.

Does anyone have experience and/or an opinion of Test Out's software (though for MCSE it is about $2000)?

How are the MS prep books or would the Exam Cram books be better?

I have already subscribed to the Cram Session daily emails. And I am more interested in passing the exams over building knowledge.

Thanks for the help in advance.

CCDE [06 Feb 2008|06:13pm]

fonesurj
Anyone thinking of the CCDE? Cisco envisions one of these guys for every 5 or 6 CCIEs at an organization.

I'm going for it. Already, ccbootcamp has a study guide coming out and some training.

"Optimal Routing Design" by Russ White is supposed to be a good start towards getting your CCDE.

The book list is ridiculously long on Cisco's website.

CCDE recommended reading here.

CCDE written blueprint here.

ccBootCamp's upcoming CCDE study guide and training.

CCENT: Worth It? [17 Jan 2008|09:56pm]

dlayphoto
Since Cisco recently released the CCENT certification, I've been looking at getting certified a little more seriously. Ultimately I'd like to get CCNA certified, and since CCENT fulfills half the CCNA exam requirement, it's starting to look more attractive.

Is it worth it, or should I just go for CCNA? If there are any CCENTs in here, feel free to chime in...

subnetting query [09 Oct 2007|11:29pm]

mantriddrone
ive looked at a lot of articles and methods to do with subnetting over the last few days by way of refreshing my mind and have got it pretty well sussed out. amazing how quickly you forget these things! anyway...

to calculate the number of host, the equation is 2^Y-2 where y in the number of host bits

to calculate the number of subnets, the equation is 2^X-2 where x is the number of network bits.

trouble is that some articles say 2^x-2 and some say 2^X to calculate the number of network bits.

i cannot for the life of me find out which is supposed to be correct, as each approach makes NO reference to the other approach.

i was always taught 2^x-2

any opinions, thoughts?

A hopefully helpful tip for someone… [09 Aug 2007|11:07am]

[ mood | Studious ]

I have been lazy with my Microsoft certification the last few years – I hold several IT certs and Microsoft was the least pressing (I was working for a reseller/consultant – Microsoft only required MCP cert to keep us in the program, other vendors required annual recertification), so I am an NT4.0 MCSE and Windows 2000 MCP. Anyway, I’m back in the job market now and decided I needed to update with Microsoft, but can’t afford classes, so it’s self-study for me. I went looking at Microsoft’s website to figure out what I needed to do, then to Amazon to find the books to prep for it and I found something some of y’all may find of interest if you’re in a similar boat.

You can get from Amazon the MCSA/MCSE Self Paced Training Kit for the Server 2003 Core (70-290, 291, 293 and 294) exams {http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0735622906/002-6803553-9032839} for $86 (plus shipping, which is free unless you want it overnight). The Microsoft Press MSRP of this set is $200. I don’t know what Borders or Buns and Noodle are selling this set for in stores – I wasn’t able to find it in a store that I visited.

What makes this most interesting (to me) is that it includes four 15% off vouchers for tests – at $125 per test, those vouchers are worth $75 total, making the net cost of the four books and the CD full of other stuff (most of which actually looks useful!) a mere ten bucks.

Current trends for 2007 [18 May 2007|12:29pm]

madamealexis
Current trends suggest 2007 will see a continuation of 2006’s healthy IT job environment. Hiring will be driven by investments in several key areas, including network security, wireless communications, business intelligence systems, and Web applications.

A recent survey of CIOs revealed that the most in-demand skills are Windows administration, Network administration (Cisco, Nortel, Novell), Database management (Oracle, SQL Server, DB2), Wireless network management, and Firewall administration. Also near the top of the list were Business Intelligence services, .NET development, XML development, and ERP implementation.

Does IT Certification Matter Anymore? [18 May 2007|12:26pm]

madamealexis
You can hear the grumbling from a far distance. It’s the sound of tech workers complaining that IT certification gets you nowhere. Perhaps tech certs worked magic in the past, but now they’re just a waste of time (and worse, money).

In contrast is the sound of companies that sell certification tests to IT staffers. Buy one of our courses, they say, and employers will open their doors wide. Fame and glory in IT is just one $750 cert test away.

In truth, an accurate assessment of IT certification’s true value appears to lie somewhere between the vendors' drumbeating and some workers’ “just say no” attitude.

Adding clarity to the topic is Cushing Anderson, an IDC analyst and author of “Worldwide IT Certification Training and Testing 2006–2010 Forecast.” He sums up the value of IT certification: “It always comes down to ‘it depends.’”

“Certification is still valuable in areas where there is a lack of talent,” he tells Datamation. In those specific tech sectors for which employers have a hard time finding qualified workers, a cert establishes bona fides immediately.

In those cases, the right certification really does open doors.
