I'm terribly sorry, but I can't endorse one vendor's products over another. As somebody who writes for lots of Web sites and is a contributing editor/columnist for Certification Magazine, I'd be violating all kinds of policies by making such recommendations. That said, here's how I recommend you go about finding a good online training vendor:
- Use your favorite search engine(s) to identify potential candidates
- Visit groups.google.com and look for companies that get the best comments and reviews therein.
- Build a "short list" of vendors who you might be willing to use, based on user comments.
- Call the vendors and ask for the best deals AND for reference accounts.
- Check references and revise your short list to take only the best of the best.
- Find out who's teaching for the courses that interest you.
- Repeat step two with instructor names and references.
- Pick your finalist, take your classes and hope for the best.
- Share your opinions with the community so others can benefit from your experiences.
