Hi Group!

It's Friday, February 27, and there's plenty of Cisco study material here for everyone today, including several new tutorials!

This upcoming Monday, the daily question posts return, and my exclusive series of CCNA Voice certification tutorials begins next Tuesday, all leading to the release of my CCNA Voice Study Package just about eight weeks from now!

Judging by my email, this is the most anxiously-awaited Study Package yet - there are thousands of you ready to get CCNA Voice certified, and I'll do everything in my power to help you get there!

And if you're ready to get CCNA Security certified - get your hands on my CCNA Security Study Package today - Greg Carbone did, and here's what he has to say about it!

"Chris, I passed the CCNA Security exam today. Once again I thank you for your great instruction support. As soon as you have the CCNA Voice available I will be purchasing that one as well. Thanks again!" - Greg Carbone, CCNA Security Certified!

Also on Monday, I'll start posting my latest series of Cisco certification training videos - and in the meantime, head out to my YouTube Cisco certification video channel for over 35 free CCNA and CCNP videos - over 60,000 certification candidates have already done just that!
