If you can't find it here or at our sister site, CSP Online Mag, guess it would go here.
WCNA wrote:I've taken the course and for me, it was worth every penny. My wireshark knowledge was pretty good before taking the course but after I took the course, I'd say it increased exponentially. In fact, the certification was probably why I got my new job. I'm doing a lot of troubleshooting log files and quite often, we'll have to look at an actual capture to see what exactly is wrong. As they say, packet's don't lie.
Laura is a good teacher and the course materials are extensive and clear. She repeats important topics several times so it really makes it easy to remember. It's not topic specific like a SANS course. It's apples and oranges. It covers all the major protocols and all the different ways wireshark can analyze a problem. For 700 it's not a bad deal. I can't remember exactly how many hours of videos it was but I seem to recall about 40. I don't think you will be disappointed but as always YMMV.

I was looking for something that would be a low cost version of the GCIA training. 4500 isn't happening anytime soon. OSCP looks cool but the WCNA material would be beneficial. I may just try to squeeze the OSCP in at some point late next year (probably after CCIE written if I do it at all).

With WireShark being free and all I'd think downloading the tool and reading up on this material would be pretty good for those on a budget. I have heard the Laura Chappel courses are amazing, but again, for the price.
