"It's the best place to hone your current skills and learn new ones."

What do you like best?

CBT Nuggets is my first go-to for any type of technical learning or studying. From learning the hiera coding of Puppet to Windows Server 2016 deployment, CBT Nuggets has a vast knowledge base of information, including tutorials, both written and in video.

What do you dislike?

I wish CBT Nuggets offered more promotions to lessen user costs of study material and increased educational discounts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would consider CBT Nuggets a highly suggested, if not mandatory offered resource for all system admin roles. Yes, there are plenty of other means of getting the information and study material you're looking for, but the presentation, ease of use, and overall functionality will not compare to what CBT offers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CBT Nuggets fills the void of useful study material for system admin-related topics.

"Good training if you are willing to pay for it."

What do you like best?

Its training at your own pace. You miss something go back and re watch it. Need to cover the subject just again or just need a refresher re watch it. The teachers are through and the courses are well thought out

What do you dislike?

The cost. It is extremely expensive for the membership. The info is good and the training is great but for the cost their are better alternatives that cost a lot less and are of the same quality. I cant say I would use them again just because of the overall price

Recommendations to others considering the product

I like the training and the add ons, But the price to outcome isn't worth it over all. If a person can knock out the course in a month or less it might be worth it but with what they are training there are cheaper alternatives that are of the same quality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The training element is huge, but the cost was too high

What Online Course Providers solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"CBT Nuggets On-Line IT Training"

What do you like best?

CBT Nuggets is an On-Line training site for Information Technology professionals. It has a very good variety of on-demand classes from linux, windows, networking, cyber security, microsoft, cisco, comptia, and etc. Its pricing is reasonable for the variety of courses it offers. I did MUCH prefer their pre-2016 pricing schema much better than their new one. The instructor are generally very good and go into a good bit of details and try to make the content interesting.

What do you dislike?

There is some content that is "aged" and needs updating. I have see a little sluggishness in rolling our updated and new courses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Quite simply... Do the free trial and try it out. By getting hands on with it you will be able to tell it if it the right fit for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We choose CBT after going their free trial while looking for an alternative to classes that required travel. Although in general it is hard to beat a live in-person in-the-classroom class, this is the best alternative that we have found.

"A Big Bang for a Lot of Bucks"

What do you like best?

A vast library on a ton of different subjects from specific programming languages to methodologies and project management. Most subjects have an intro course that then leads into more meaty sections giving you a nice ramp up into the material. Everything is broken up into small bite size chapters which can be worked through at your own pace.

What do you dislike?

It needs to be done but some of the coursework in the beginning is quite remedial and unnecessary. But this might be because I have a slight introduction already into a lot of different subjects. Digging through those first few chapters can be a real bore before I get into what I want to learn. Also, the price is nothing to scoff at, it comes in at a much higher price point that some alternatives. I was able to get this as part of my corporate training allowance, I would not pay the large amount on my own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can afford it or are given an education allowance I highly recommend taking advantage of the huge library of knowledge. Alternatives might be better for personal usage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Right now learning project management and keeping my scripting skills up to par for my day-to-day work.

"CBT Nuggets Virtual Training "

What do you like best?

The site is pretty easy to use. Just go to their website and sign in. I do a lot of reviewing of course material on their mobile app as well. Many co-workers have passed cert exams using it.

What do you dislike?

They need to add additional content that goes into a full deep dive for experienced users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I started using it right after I was hired and it has a good amount of training materials for IT professionals. My company has used it for a few years.

"CBT Nuggets delivers good courses at a good price"

What do you like best?

We are a very small school with limited resources, so on line training really makes sense to us. CBT Nuggets deliver good courses in a way that we can take time when it comes available to learn new technologies.

What do you dislike?

There were limits to the subject matter covered, so before purchasing, make sure there is adequate course material available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check that the subjects needed are included in their material first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am managing Linux servers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you can look past the cost of this, it is worth a look into as it allows a variety of learning types to thrive.

"Great Beginner's Learning"

What do you like best?

The instructors make everything more fun and interesting than the other dry and mundane trainers.

What do you dislike?

The training seems to cap out at an intermediate and then it's no longer useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you understand what CBT Nuggets has to offer and that you're getting exactly what you need. You definitely need to shop around for training.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used CBT Nuggets to obtain many first and second level certifications. They are very good at keeping content interesting while also explaining topics.

"Well presented generic IT Training"

What do you like best?

I enjoyed the SQL modules, particularly expanding my skillset into the advanced capabilities SSIS and SSRS .

What do you dislike?

The training content was well built, but was often too generic for much of our specialized software solutions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand your true training needs. Broad content is not always

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Training staff on current topics.
