Cisco certs are a PITA to get. Don't expect that this will be the only resource you need

I dont know, around 1/3rd of my peers at the last job went from nothing to CCNA in a 8 week program, and that was a slow bootcamp. The reality in tech in my experience is the business can and will pay for relevant certifications. If they're not paying for it they're not interested in it.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding this comment chain, but I think the first poster was saying that this study bundle will not be sufficient for getting the Cisco certs... Like, they weren't knocking the cert itself. Agreed though on employers that care paying for them though. I know a few friends who have had that happen for them

Hum at that price at a whole bundle that's kinda amazing but I think it may not be all you need maybe a teaser or something.

Sure- they are correct its not enough. I was just saying don't spend a dime of your own money, if its enough or not.

Seems decent for the price! Boot camps can be $100 a day or more. I like that it says lifetime access to the training content so it doesn't just last 90 days - as long as the company is still around of course.

Interesting. I'd say there are a good number of instructors that have usually done these classes in person and have moved over to virtual or recorded in the past year because of Covid. I manage Cisco certs for about 100 partners in the US, and a 5 day in person crash course on CCNA is usually about $3500. That said, as others have noted, don't expect this to be the only thing you need. 30 hours of content for the CCNA seems light, and I'd be wary of this, as the test itself is $300... So, you're saving money on the front end, but you could just be wasting 30 hours studying for the wrong material becuase they just aren't in tune with the questions on the test, which change often btw. Then you go and spend $300 on a test that you fail... I'd opt to keep this as a backup or just for the labs alone, but I'd still look for more reviewed material.
Edit:
Additionally, I'd stay away from this altogether... The reviews for each class are exactly the same 4.47/5 and there doesn't seem to be a way to access those reviews to see if they're genuine. You don't know who the instructor is, so you can't check their credentials, and they seem to ha e the Cisco designing networks class (which should be around 40 hours) compacted to 6.... Yeah, ok. I almost want to buy this, just to see what the hell it DOES consist of. Someone buy it and report back, lol

After you get a Cisco cert, where do you find entry-level jobs that put the cert to work? Most I'm seeing here require 5+ years experience.

Purchased courses from stacksocial before. Wasn't impressed. Felt really slow and flat. Many sections were short and essentially told you what you should go out and learn rather than explaining / deep diving.

LinkedIn or a recruiter

Like most certifications you will be able to find all you need for free online between all the online/app education sites. You will need additional training on top of them. This deal won't be much better than the free versions.

NOC, SOC, or TAC for a technology based company. IT departments for most other medium size or larger companies.
