The One Thing! The One Place!

Chances are if you’re reading this blog, you weren’t born yesterday. That means you know perfectly well that embarking on a course of study for a Cisco Certification is not just about what to learn, but how to learn it…and when to learn it, and where, and at what cost? You surely have lots of questions. You know that weighing the cost in your time and effort is important. And there is so much to know (deep sigh). Why does learning how to learn feel as difficult as the learning itself?

It does not have to! What if there was One Thing you could do, and One Place you could go, for everything needed to get started, and build a great foundation for passing the Data Center Automation and Programmability certification exam? One Thing that will help make a difference, change the outlook, turn the abstract into the concrete? There is! It’s right here on DevNet.

Right now, on DevNet you’ll find a curated set of learning materials with parallels to the specific topics that you need to know to prepare for the certification exam.
