642-176 SMBE

Smart Business Communications System

I think your best bet would be to phone your local Cisco Offices and ask to speak to someone on the SMB side of the business like an Account Manager. (pref do this with the Cisco office in your city or closest city).

Alternatively phone your pref/local Cisco Distributor and ask them (some have SMB Accelerate Program days boot camps and have the material on hand or might be able to take you through a crash course and get you the exams free)

I say local Cisco offices and/or Cisco distributor cause you might have to drive there to pick up a CD because they may offer to snail mail it to you (CDs and the post depending on where you are in the world may get lost).

I know that our local Cisco office had CD handouts with the SMB/SMBE tracks and then SBCSAM/SBCSEN tracks in pdf format. Worth a shot, give it a try.

This would be the best way to get the legit most up to date PDF that will prepare you for the tests.

For CCNA/CCNP/CCIE books/toys/etc the website is http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/marketplace/welcome.pl but I don't see the SMB/SMBE/SBCSAM/SBCSEN course material listed.

Hi DeonLouwBotha,

You are right, I contacted my Cisco Local Contact, she will send me a CD with this information.

Thank you !.

Best regards.

online learning is offered in Adobe captivate in the form of slides. on the top right hand corner you will see "Transcript" in yellow fonts, click that for each slide and you will be able to have PDF format. It will be a lot of work but atleast you will get PDF format.
