O’Reilly announces certification guides for the most in-demand IT and professional certifications

O’Reilly’s streamlined experience features a single destination for certification preparation and interactive practice exams

BOSTON—March 2, 2020O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today announced new complete sets of preparation materials to help users achieve the most sought-after certifications necessary for today’s IT and InfoSec professionals. The streamlined experience within the O’Reilly learning platform allows users to prepare and practice for certification exams with an enhanced approach that includes certification guides and interactive practice exams.

With O’Reilly Certifications, users can drill down to the exact certification of interest and prepare for exams with content that has often been created by the official certification vendor partners – including self-paced books, instructor-led videos and interactive practice tests – all within a single destination. Certification guides are now available across 14 of the most in-demand certification vendors including AWS, Cisco, CISSP, CompTIA, Google Cloud, Linux Foundation, Microsoft and Oracle.

“Obtaining certifications can be a daunting task. When users embark on the certification journey, they are often left toggling between the vendors site and multiple third-party sites to prepare for their exams,” said Pascal Honscher, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at O’Reilly. “The new O’Reilly certification guides provide users with a single direct path to the essential set of materials to help those pursuing a specific certification get the best collection of prep materials and practice exams–many of which have been created by the official certification vendor partners.”

To help users prepare for a final certification exam, O’Reilly has integrated practice exams by Pearson. Each practice exam is fully interactive, customizable, and provides valuable feedback. With the added ability to track performance on a module-by-module basis, users can hone in on specific skill areas that need the most attention, then take a timed simulation test when ready for a practice exam.

To identify materials for the most in-demand IT and InfoSec certifications, O’Reilly’s editorial team leveraged platform usage data from its 2,000+ certification-titles and verified them with their publishers and certifying vendors. The most effective titles specific to a certification were selected and placed into guides, where users are now able to utilize them for certifications towards popular career roles, including software developer, cloud practitioner, solutions architect, security specialist and more.
