    There are many cbt's (computer based training, video training) : trainsignal, cbt nuggets, bryantadvantage.com, ...

    What is the best one ?

    That's entirely down to personal preference and how you learn, so we can only give our opinions - there isn't a 'best'.

    I've heard lots of good things about CBT Nuggets, though they are expensive.

    I prefer the whole reading from a book thing myself :)

    The two main ones that I like are Learnkey and CBTNuggets, Trainsignal are ok, but then again it's down to personally preference and the actually subject.

    I use the cisco books and the bryantadvantage package along side each other as it is explained different and the labs are great in the bryantadvantage package - cheap too.

    I've used a few and I don't think that there is one particular brand that is better than the rest. They all have their strengths and weaknesses.

    The brands I've used in the past are Trainsignal, AppDev, CBT Nuggets, Lynda.com.

    I've recently been able to see some of the cbt nuggets stuff and the guy who does the videos is a nutter :) LOL but at least its not a constant droning voice, now considering a purchase...

    The Trainsignal ones apparently feature the same guy (Chris) from the bryantadvantage.com

    I've just bought one of the bryantadvantage ones (not to do with my current study but it is of interest to me) and the content seems to be very good so far, but that is just my initial impressions. However people seem to like his stuff and I have heard nothing bad about it.

    I have always found that CBT Nuggets found at http://www.cbtnuggets.com/ have been excellent.

    I have used them on all of the exams I have taken so far and would definately recommend.

    Is that Jeremy Cioara (sp?)

    Definitely brings the subject to life and is more than obsessed with the Matrix films lol

    No Idea as I only got to watch one on Wireless networks (I wanted some more info and a friend had them)

    I just remember him talking about cows :biggrin

    It was funny which if why I am now thinking of buying, I'm in two minds though as I discovered the bryantadvantage before I heard about cbtnuggets
