I picked up Kevin's Video mentor title when I was preparing for the rigors of the CCNP. I am familiar with other Cisco Press books but this was the first "video" product that I have used from them. I was pleased to see that all of the critical commands are outlined in the hardcopy text that accompanied the book. When I popped in the DVD I found it well organized, allowing me to focus in on topics specific to the exam of interest at the time. Having an expert like Kevin walk through all of the critical configurations gave me the knowledge I needed to then practice these on my own. I found the reference guide helpful as well, as I went out on my own gear and banged away with these commands. Having the chance to not only see the commands, but to also get solid training as to their usage via the DVD was critical to my learning. One by one I worked through the exams with the help of this DVD and found that I was very well prepared when it came time for each exam. The Cisco configurations that can be on the exams are one of the most challenging aspects of the exam process. Having the CCNP Video Mentor helped me to learn the critical commands necessary to succeed and gave me the resources I needed to practice these again and again. I really could not have done nearly as well as I did on these configuration tasks without the CCNP Video Mentor!

Format: Paperback
I bought the video mentor hoping it would help get me back on track with my CCNP studies. I've been studying off and on for over a year on my CCNP while actively doing in-depth networking during my day job.

First the negatives: there isn't much meat to this study guide. 5 hours for $50+ just doesn't cover it. I paid about half that through my Cisco Press discount and I still feel cheated. The CCNP is so much more detailed than what 5 hours can possibly cover. I've seen CCNA video study guides that 40 hours or more in length. 5 hours to cover a single test really isn't enough in my opinion. I've taken the BSCI twice and didn't pass it either time. The first was due to lack of studying all the relevant IGPs (I never imagines that a full 1/3 of the test would be nothing but EIGRP! I'm much more of an expert IS-IS, BGP and OSPF by far so I bombed the EIGRP portion quite thoroughly). The second failure was due to lack of study time in the weeks leading up to my scheduled retake. Having seen the test twice I can say with absolute certainty that the material covered in Lab 1, which was little more than basic EIGRP, wouldn't be enough answer the EIGRP questions correctly.

That brings me to my second gripe. The test material that was covered is more on par with entry-level CCNA material than CCNP material. Sure the MQC labs touched on some more advanced material like the LFI lab but the overwhelming majority of the material is the basic fundamentals at most. I feel in no way prepared to go back and take the new CCNP courses based on these videos. Either the material is way too basic or I'm really good, much more so than I think I am. This DVD is more like an Intro to the video mentor that mistakenly took on some of the more CCNA topics.

The material that is covered is presented well. Unfortunately, there is just not enough material covered to justify the price. The videos are packaged in a single non-copy protected DVD. There is room for more than 2 GB of additional content. This would be a much better product if Cisco Press would use this space to deliver more content!
