    Hi All,

    Just wondered if anyone had used the CBT Nuggets for the Network+?
    I have tried to use it but I am really struggling to take it in. Just find it exremely boring.

    I have now started on Prof Messer and find it much more interesting. Has anyone else found this?

    I used them once for some vmware material, I nearly fell asleep. It wasn't my way to study, I'm a hands on person and watching videos just doesn't work for me!

    I like the CBT nuggets myself but agree they might not always be the best option, reading a book and doing some labs is normally required too.

    If your hands on reading the book is likely just a dull as the video however...

    I like trainsignal videos... I find they're more technical and a lot more hands on with labs that you can follow... The CBT nugget videos are less technical from my experience.

    Actually a mix of CBT Nuggets, Trainsignal, books and hands on work best for me.

    I find the books are the best way to send me to sleep but then that happens when i read anything. Something about sitting still, concentrating sliently staring at black text on a white background :sleeping
    Now i watch the videos while flicking between an rdp to my server and lots of caffinee.
