Yesterday I received my new CCNP books from Cisco Press. Surprisingly the price was not that bad what I got. All three courses, 642- 902, 813 and the 832. I opt for Certs Kits for each as well.
The complete course was around $250 which includes the “Official Certification Guides” , Cert Kits and shipping.
The Cert Kits includes a Quick Reference booklets, flash cards (found online) and a DVD. Each DVD in the same familiar format as the the Video Mentor series is, each with an introduction and roughly 5 to 6 hours of video, each covering the the material talk about in the Certification Guides.
This is makes this series stand out is that the Cert Kits complement the Cert Guides. I would recommend that you buy them both. While scanning through the new material I notice that this time Cisco is really pushing hard on the routing and switching. They have left a lot of the VOiP and security out, which was found in the ONT (642-845) and ISCW (642-825) tracks.
