I'm Chris Bryant, CCIE #12933, and I welcome you to The Bryant Advantage!
I'd rather talk about how I can help you earn your CCNA, CCNP, and Microsoft Vista certifications, but here's just a little background on me.
I've been in the IT field for just a little over 10 years, and during that time I earned my Novell CNA, Cisco CCNA and CCNP, and my Microsoft MCSE. While I worked on those various certifications, I noticed there were basically two kinds of study guides:
Books that were too difficult - books that were basically pages and pages of documentation that didn't help you much unless you already understood the material
Books that were too simple - they would cover some of the exam topics, but not all, and not in the depth necessary to pass the exams.
Since I wasn't happy with the guides and classes on the market, I decided to try my hand at writing my own books and courses - but first, I wanted to pass the CCIE lab exam. I earned that certification on February 26, 2004, in Raleigh, North Carolina, and then started my own Cisco technologies training organization, The Bryant Advantage, in June of that year.
I heard from one naysayer after another that there were already too many books, courses, etc. - but I knew that many of you felt like I did, that the books were either too hard or too easy, with few being "just right". Also, I wanted to make my books available for quick download after purchase, which allows me to keep all books packed with the latest information.
Turns out that I was right! I've sold thousands of The Ultimate CCNA Study Package to CCNA candidates just like you, and quite a few of my CCNA Video Boot Camps, CCNP Study Packages, and my other Cisco training ebooks, videos, and courses. I've also had the privilege to teach my Ultimate CCNA Boot Camp online and across the United States. From Texas to New Jersey, from California to Virginia, I've brought the finest in in-person CCNA training to companies just like yours.
My mission is simple - to teach you the skills you need to pass the CCNA, CCNP, and CompTIA exams and to excel when working with real-world networks. That's why I offer you training on REAL Cisco routers and switches - because after all, there are no "router simulators" in a real-world network!
So please take your time and look around the site - I've got hundreds of free CCNA and CCNP training tutorials, articles on starting or jumpstarting your Information Technology career, and so much more - and this is your opportunity to join the thousands of CCNAs and CCNPs worldwide who have brought The Bryant Advantage to their careers and certification pursuit!
To your Cisco certification success,
