    I have seen that these 2 companies are offering monthly subs and wondering what people thought of the 2 companies and their products.

    I have used cbt nuggets videos and although seem very good, they are usually hard to use a study to go through with the official MS books as they aren't structured the same.

    Train signal I haven't used, but has seen some good reviews and at half the price must be considered.

    Just be good to have all the latest editions of training at your finger tips and also to get overviews of different subjects before fully committing.

    Thanks for the replies.

    simongrahamuk Hmmmmmmm?

    It would depend on how much you plan on studying and within what time frame?

    For me I'd say its not worth it, because I'm not actively studying (and as you've said the videos don't match the material), and also because the likes of youtube tend to have videos for free that will match exactly what I'm looking for.

    Heres a brief bit of nonsense I wrote on the trainsignal package New Trainsignal subscription service review | vhorizon for me personally I much prefer the trainsignal package. I've seen a few cbts in my time but they always skim alot of the detail and just do not seem quite so professional. Trainsignal on the other hand is half the price and vastly better in quality in my opinion.

    You can sign up for a 3 day trial HERE not sure if CBTNugs offers any trials but in my mind half the cost and better quality wins out.

    I'd say it depends on the exam you are going for. In my experience I have found both of those to be very good so I would trawl through Certforums and see what others are saying helped them pass their exams. Let that decide for you. For instance, my network friend thought the Trainsignal CBT's for the CCNA were better than the Nuggets, where as I find for Microsoft server exams, CBT Nuggets work best for me. I don't think one is better than the other. Just my 2 cents, Jim

    Ive only used CBT nuggets, i find them to be good and i do use them, my only complaint about them is that they do drag on abit. Some of them can be an hour long where as i feel it would be better if they were broke down more into 20-30 minute segments like the proffessor messer videos.

    Interesting topic, I was thinking about going for one of the two monthly deals for my next lot of exams.

    I have used CBT Nuggets in the past and found them them to be pretty good, although with TrainSignal at half the monthly price, its very tempting to switch!

    Agreed. For example, I found Trainsignal better for the VCP5-DV then I did CBT Nuggets. On some other exams I have found the CBT nuggets to be better.
