Newsletter: January 2013

We hope the first month of 2013 has been treating you well. Here’s a look at what’s new at CBT Nuggets.

Your 2013 Resolutions

ChalkBoard resolutionsWhile lots of people make a New Year’s resolution to decrease their waistline, Nugget fans resolve to increase their brain!

We asked what your 2013 training resolution was, and you answered: CCNA and CCNP topped the list of 2013 goals, followed by MCSE and CCIE (wow!). Many responses mentioned security training, such as CompTIA’s Security+ certification. However, your interests are broad, and practically every training category—including Linux, project management, wireless, voice, Office, and Juniper—was represented.

Your motivation to keep learning is truly impressive. We salute your efforts, and we hope we can help you achieve your goals this year.

New Series Releases 

Microsoft Server 2012 70-414 with Greg ShieldsGreg standing
Ready to clear the final hurdle to MCSE: Server Infrastructure certification? This series gives you what you need to succeed on the 70-414 exam.

Microsoft’s 70-414  exam doesn’t so much ask “what to do” as “when to do it,” and Greg speaks directly to Microsoft’s 70-414 exam objectives in this training series. He explains each objective in common sense terms, whiteboarding architectures where appropriate while demoing configurations when a little extra attention might be necessary.

This series is for those who have experience installing and configuring Windows Server 2012, including advanced services, and can design and implement a server infrastructure with the aid of System Center.

IPv6 with Keith BarkerKeith_stand
Ready or not, IPv6 is here! In this series, Keith walks you step-by-step through the concepts, implementation and verification of IPv6 in a Cisco infrastructure, with various clients attached as hosts, including Windows, Linux and Mac. The same concepts can be applied to implement IPv6 to other vendors.

You can practice alongside Keith, as many of the topology diagrams, startup configuration files and commands used in the videos are included for your use.

If you’re implementing an IPv6 network, or have plans to roll out either a test or production IPv6 network soon, (or you simply need to understand how IPv6 works), this training series will be valuable to you.

PRINCE2® Foundations with Steve Caseley
steve_glassesIn this valuable series, Steve will teach you all about PRINCE2®. Originally developed by the British government, PRINCE2® is a comprehensive, process-driven project management approach with a full definition of the required processes, principles, themes and deliverables. It is widely used in the UK, as well as other countries in Europe and eastern Asia.

After viewing this series, you’ll have a handle on the PRINCE2™ method and be prepared for the PRINCE2® Foundation exam.

Latte Challenge Update: When Will Craigen Finish?

Screen Shot 2012-12-27 at 9.30.52 AMCBT Nuggets’ Guess the Date Latte Challenge is coming to an end! As you may remember, in November, our CEO auctioned off a 65” TV to the highest bidder. But instead of money, employees bid their latte-making services. The lattes have been flowing, and now Craigen (the highest bidder at 183) only has 24 left to make.

Visit the Guess the Date app on our Facebook page to see a calendar with our contestants’ guesses and to stay updated on this contest.
