In the past couple of months, I've started blogging for a couple of training companies -- Upper Training and TrainSignal, to be specific -- and have been writing the occasional guest blog for Anne Martinez at GoCertify.com as well. Add to that my weekly blogs here, and three times a week on cert topics for IT Career JumpStart over at TechTarget, and that's a whole lotta blogging. And because of that, I've returned repeatedly to a free, book-length resource I created for this very own site about two years ago now.
It shows up here as "Ed Tittel's IT Certification Success" and incorporates a lengthy series of 29 inter-related articles (for a total of something around 250 pages' worth of material). Here's the table of contents, verbatim:
Why am I telling you this, and providing so much detailed information to help you dig into this stuff? Simply because I've found myself re-reading it nearly from end to end lately, and have been amazed and pleased at the wealth of useful information it contains. I've been updating bits and pieces of the materials from time to time to keep them up to date, but there is a lot of good "evergreen" information in here that never goes stale, too.
If you're familiar with this resource, be sure to keep it in your favorites. If you've yet to visit this collection of articles, you might want to pay them a visit. If you're interested in IT certification, you're sure to find some stuff you might like here. If you do dig in, and notice anything missing, or would like to request some added content or coverage, please drop me a line at ed at edtittel dot com and let me know. I'm always happy to add to this excellent collection of IT cert info and advice!
