Give yourself the gift of knowledge (and score a half-price practice exam!)

December 20, 2013 at 5:09 pm | Posted in Kaplan IT Training news | Leave a comment

If the thought of spending the next week or two locked in your office and declaring “Not now; I have to study for my IT certification exam!” is more appealing than refilling the eggnog and trying to match names with faces of long-lost relatives, then we have just the deal for you. From now until December 30th 2013, you can buy any Transcender practice exam with the code TRAWINTER13, and get a second product for 50% off the retail price — making a Transcender practice exam the perfect gift to give to yourself (and maybe your significant other as well).

While your friends and family are  eating pie, drinking festive holiday beverages, and celebrating the end of another year, you can enjoy learning facts about project management, reviewing router-0n-a-stick configurations, and executing the ping command each and every time another Bing Crosby carol airs.

To grab your winter savings, click this link to enter the Transcender site, then remember to add TRAWINTER13 to your cart to activate the discount!

This deal expires at 11:59 PM on December 30.

The Transcender Team will be joined by a couple of friends from CBT Nuggets in New Orleans next week and they’d all love to meet you!

You can catch us at the Exhibition Hall, Booth #2412. Or stop by the Study Hall and test drive our practice test products – enjoy FREE online access to our Microsoft product library all week! You can meet Josh and George at one of the Hands on Labs, where they’ll be happy to answer all your questions, including where the best social events are held that evening :)

We love meeting our readers and hearing all about your TechEd sessions, so make some time to stop by, chat, and score some great swag. We’ll also be launching a super cool month-long promotion that I’ve had to promise Marketing not to spoil before Monday. But trust me when I tell you it’s something you’re going to DEFINITELY want to sign up for, and TechEd attendees get first dibs on registration starting Monday.  This prize is actually so neat, my team is pretty bummed that we’re excluded from participating.

I look forward to meeting you guys at TechEd 2013 next week! For those of you I miss at the booth, I hope you learn a lot, see a lot & enjoy all that the great city of New Orleans has to offer!

–Aima Rotella & the Transcender Team


Have your cake and online product too!

Ever wonder if we (Transcender) actually read your comments on our blog, or the feedback/suggestion emails you submit? I can tell you that we do, but I’d rather show you.

Check it out – combined delivery is here!

In response to your ever-evolving study habits, we have changed the way we deliver our product. Where previously you had to decide how you wanted to use our product before you bought it, now you can complete your purchase without having to commit to one delivery method. With combined delivery, you have access to both the installation version of our product and 90-day access to the online version. The content is exactly the same for both versions, the only thing that changes is where you are while you’re studying.

Our download product lets you install your practice test on 2 different computers, while the online product lets you access your practice test from anywhere, anytime as long as you have an internet connection. Should you want to access the online version beyond the 90-day period, just log in to your Club Account and check out your recently expanded extension options.

Not impressed yet? How about a $70 savings? Yep! We may have changed our delivery method, but we chose not to change our prices. Everything else in life is already so expensive, we thought we’d do something a little different. Combined delivery for a single price means you save about $70 when compared to buying these products separately. Happy studying!

Hurry – don’t miss your chance to upgrade to VCP5 without taking more classes

We know that many of you are not happy with the VMware policy of requiring candidates to purchase and complete a training class before taking the exam. Many articles have been written in the last year or so encouraging VMware to drop this requirement and allow exam candidates to pass or fail the exam on experience only.

We’re not going to take a side one way or the other in that debate, but those of you who currently hold a VCP4 certification and wish to upgrade, have some options! If you’re looking to upgrade, you have until Feb 29, 2012 to take the new VCP5 exam without needing to take a refresher class. If you upgrade to the VCP5 certification after that date, you will be required to take the VMware VSphere: What’s New 5 course. This is a 2-day course that costs about $1,200. But so we’re clear, the VMware guidelines are clear:

All requirements must be met (including passing the exam) by February 29th to qualify for this upgrade!

Course requirements change for VCP3 certification holders on Feb. 29 as well. Before Feb. 29, you’ll have to take the two-day vSphere: What’s New 5. After Feb. 29, you’ll be required to take ICM 5 or vSphere Fast Track 5. Both are 5-day courses. ICM costs about $2,800, and Fast Track about $4,400.

Course requirements before and after Feb. 29 are the same for anyone with a VCP 2 or earlier certification. Course options here are vSphere ICM 5 or vSphere Fast Track 5.

For information on the expiration of the 6-month grace period see the VMware website:
