    Default Any Skillsoft opinions?

    Any opinions on certification video courses from Skillsoft?

    To be more specific, the courses I'm thinking about viewing are CySA+ and CISSP

    Not sure about CISSP, but I watched the CySA+ series. I thought they did a good job cover a breadth of material, however I'm not sure how well it actually prepared me for the exam. I passed in Dec. but I had a lot of extra references and had about 3 months of blue team experience going into the exam. I would say study the course but still use toher resources, compliment by a study guide book and read a lot of online blogs and articles about the various topics.

    SkillSoft is kind of a mixed bag. I've gone through some of their CCNA Security, Service Provider, and CCNP Route stuff, as well as some Juniper, and Linux+ videos. I think they do a good job at teaching those, but didn't go nearly into enough detail to be able to pass. I'd say it's a good review before the final exam after you've already done something else.

    I forgot what class, but one of my business classes at WGU used a SkillSoft course that was absolutely terrible. It was poorly written, and they didn't even bother having a real instructor read the scrips. I guess they decided a computer program reading it would do just as well.

    In both cases, the test questions are garbage. Some give you the answer in the question and aren't nearly hard enough to judge if you can pass. Others are worded so poorly that you don't know what they are asking.
