CiscoPress CCNP Cert Kit Giveaway

Wed Jan 27, 2010 6:19 pm

As many of you know already, the CCNP certification exams are changing. The old exams, BSCI (Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks), BCMSN (Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks), ISCW (Implementing Secure Converged WANs), and ONT (Optimizing Converged Cisco Networks), will be available through July 31, 2010. The new exams, ROUTE (Implementing Cisco IP Routing), SWITCH (Implementing Cisco Switched Networks), and TSHOOT (Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks) will be available in March and April of 2010.

Cisco Press, the official publisher of Cisco, has announced their new portfolio of exam preparation materials which includes a new type of product for them called Cert Kits. The kits are considered quick reference material to be used in conjunction with the official books to prepare for the exams. Included in each kit is video, online flash cards for your mobile device or desktop, and a quick reference guide for last minute studying.

CCNP Cert Kits
CCNP ROUTE 642-902 Cert Kit: Video, Flash Card, and Quick Reference Preparation Package
CCNP SWITCH 642-813 Cert Kit: Video, Flash Card, and Quick Reference Preparation Package
CCNP TSHOOT 642-832 Cert Kit: Video, Flash Card, and Quick Reference Preparation Package *

* - Available in Spring of 2010

With that said, it is my pleasure to announce that Pearson Education has graciously agreed to provide 4 sets of copies of their new CCNP Cert Kits to our members. I am making this announcement today and will post a follow up this coming Monday morning (CST) on how you can win one of these sets of 4 CCNP Cert Kits. Please stay tuned as further details will follow.

And of course, please make sure you link your friends, coworkers, and blogs to this post. I'd like to see lots of new faces try to win one of these prize packages.

Want to get a head start on this one? Create a link to this thread announcing the contest on your Cisco blog or website then reply to this thread with the link to your link. Doing this will move you up in the contest by one spot and will break the tie for somebody who doesn't link to it. :twisted:

The deadline for this advantage is Sunday at 12PM CST.
