Many students ask us why we create our larger course bundles, when some people may not have time to complete all the courses inside the 12 month subscription window...

Well, essentially they're created to enable you to dip in and out of multiple related programs and obtain cross-referenced knowledge; the intention is not for you to study it all or sit all the exams! With any kind of technical learning, building your background knowledge on closely related areas makes a lot of sense. Therefore, having access to a wide range of connected programs enables you to research related topics to the actual program you're studying for (often just watching the video/tutorial), enhancing your overall understanding. This is why we create the larger bundles; to build the breadth of your knowledge. Also, many IT professionals use them as reference material after certification, as we usually provide discounts on subsequent re-subscription - to enable you to have the material as a constant professional reference.
