Wendell Odom Is Closing Down His “Cisco Cert Zone” Blog…

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

For those  of you who don’t already know, Wendell Odom is a  pretty strong force in the Cisco certification training and learning space. That’s probably because he’s been covering the CCNA study guides and lots of other prep materials for Cisco Press since the CCNA Program first went live back in 1998 (and he’s also the holder of CCIE Number 1624, which puts him pretty darn early in that program’s history as well — those cert numbers started at 1000). To get an idea of Wendell’s current body of work (out-of-print stuff would swell this display considerably) check out the Product Page at his “CertSkills” website, where you’ll find numerous CCENT, CCNA, and CCNP related items.

Though the blog is closing down, existing posts will stick around -- some very much worth visiting.

Although he may not be posting new content to the blog anymore (or for a while), there is still plenty of content in the blog that remains worth a look-see. And in fact, his “farewell post” provides links to the best of what he considers to be his evergreen material there, including useful gear worth acquiring for CCNA and also CCNP home study and practice labs, as well as useful background and strategy info for pursuing and earning CCNA certification. Though readers who’ve earned at least CCNA or CCENT credentials are likely to be familiar with Mr. Odom’s fine body of work, newbies should dig in and start processing his many and varied items of content sooner rather than later. A trip to this farewell posting, and the resources to which it points, will be a worthwhile investment of their time.
