I work in a NOC and we are a Nortel Shop and I am trying to find some good study material for Nortel certifications. Nortel Network Certified Design Specialist is one of the certifications. Can anyone recommend any good books I can get to start studying. I want to start with the Baystack switches and Business Policy Switch

Thank you
Kevin

My two cents is I wouldn't bother with Nortel certification...

Get as far away from them and learn Cisco gear as quickly as possible.

I already have an NNCDS and most employers have ABSOLUTELY NO idea what it is. There is nothing like trying to explain the intricacies of the Nortel certification program to employers that intone the current mantra in the job market "Cisco, Cisco, Cisco..."

And before you flip out on me, keep in mind that I am a former Nortel employee. I was fortunate enough to survive the first 12 rounds of layoffs, got whacked on the 13th unfortunately.

My Nortel cert was about as useful as half a roll of wet toilet paper in the middle of a national forest in the current job market. (And yes, I have several other certs too!)

While the knowledge you get by studying Nortel may serve you in other areas the value of a Nortel Cert is not high in most areas.
 I don't think I've ever seen a job listing requiring a Nortel cert.

Well ... I'm in a Nortel Shop in Charlotte NC and we are in need of a Sr. Engineer with ... gasp ... Nortel experience and certifications.

Yes, it's true - Nortel is alive in the wild.

You work for Nortel? Or someone else?

Do you have a job description, just curious?
