I just finished listening to a podcast where Terry Slattery was interviewed by Brandon Carroll of globalconfig.net on training tips for career certifications. If you are working on a Cisco certification, you should find that Terry’s comments and advice are worth reviewing. He discusses the value of certifications and talks about the range of Cisco career certifications from CCNA to CCIE, CCDE, and the new CCAr options. He also mentions some tips to help study for certifications including lots of hands on-time, as well as reading various books and blogs.
