MARS Self-Study Aides?

I'm trying desperately to understand MARS.  It seems like a powerful tool, but I find the GUI rather unintuitive and it is difficult for me personally to learn by reading the Cisco documentation.

I was supposed to take a MARS class with Global Knowledge, but our  training budget for the year is exhausted so I'm looking for any self-training that might be available. I've got the Security Monitoring with Cisco MARS book, but  was hoping there might be some CBT or other training documentation out  there.  Unfortunately CBT Nuggets, who I absolutely love, doesn't have MARS in their CCSP series.

Thanks, folks.

The Cisco website has complete user guides for current releases of CS-MARS:

While these guides don't function as true task-oriented CBT, they will provide good insight into the full workings of the CS-MARS platform.

Hi,

I am in the same situation as Terry, above.  I have very little time to learn it, and am looking for a CBT or otherwise interactive learning tool.  any suggestions, other than the Cisco User Guide?

Thanks-

I have not been able to find any interactive learning tool.  But the Quck Start guide below does have some helpful examples:
