The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Posted by TestOut Staff on

I was recently reminded of the Sainsbury’s television ad that depicts the Christmas Truce of 1914. On Christmas Eve of that year, in the trenches of the Western Front during the First World War, you could hear German and Allied soldiers singing Christmas carols across enemy lines. On Christmas morning, German troops stepped away from their cover and walked through no-mans-land shouting “Merry Christmas” to their enemies. This initially alarmed the Allied troops, but after realizing the advancing soldiers were unarmed, they went to greet them. Differences were set aside for those few hours (days in some areas), and celebration interrupted the brutal slog of warfare.


Whether it’s in celebration of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, or some other holiday, this time of year is magical. People seem to be a little more respectful of one another, and because of that, good things happen. TestOut is once again joining in on the year-end celebrations with its biggest sale of the year.

Now don’t be mistaken — in no way am I comparing the magnitude of the TestOut Year-End Blowout to the miracle that happened on the front lines of World War II on that long-ago Christmas Day. A time for celebration is a time for celebration, however, and TestOut wants to help with that.

From now until the end of the year, TestOut is selling its entire library of courses for $595 (reg. $895). The Library Suite includes the following courses:


  • A+ 220-901, 220-902

Any new or updated courses will be added to your Library Suite automatically. You are given full access to each of these courses, including lab simulations. Just like the holidays, the TestOut Year-End Blowout only comes around once a year, so take advantage of it.

With certification news and updates aside, I wish you all a happy holiday season. Let’s take a lesson from those who took a break from war to observe a holiday. Find common ground with whoever you think of as being your opposition and celebrate together.
