    Default Video training for VMWare study

    Has anyone used either Career Academy or ITDVDs Vmware training? If so what did you think of them?

    I am considering using the resources from ITDVDs alongside other resources for study of the VCP6 (blueprint, Mastering Vsphere 6 book and a home lab), I have a reasonable commute to work so I normally utilise that time to read or watch training and wondered if these were worth the time and investment. Whilst looking for VSphere 6 resources I found the Career Academy site and wondered if the Ultimate Bootcamp for 5.5 may be worth the time and effort as I am considering VCAP (again I know the blueprint and a LAB are paramount for VCAP).

    Have used neither, but I would recommend giving CBT Nuggets & Pluralsight a shot. These two both offer a free trial period, great way to test the waters and see the type of material on offer and quality of training provided before you invest your $

    I just closed my CBTnuggets account and opened a Pluralsight account. Less money per month and more VMware videos to watch.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I am glad that the good folks maintaining the Vbrownbags have uploaded most of the videos to YouTube, thanks for reminding me look at their work.

    I am going to trial Pluralsight and have access to a Cbt nuggets account via work so will check those out too.

    Thanks for the quick responses and apologies for not responding sooner (work!).
