It looks like there is finally some (expensive) study material available.
Looks like individual modules are $49-$99, and there are 24 of them. Doesn't seem like a good value to me for a CCNA level certification.
I second that. I am an IoT researcher and wanted to brush up my skills by looking into IMINS2. At first the $250 certification price mark was quite encouraging, but, i ended up being frustrated having found absolutely no material directly linked to exam topics.
The study modules on Cisco Learning Network are way too much expensive and for a CCNA level track, they make no sense to me at all
I hope that we find some useful material on the said topics and look a little deeper into the subject
Unfortunately, there is currently no information regarding an Official Cert Guide for 200-601 IMINS2 exam. For release date information on the official cert guides, we recommend checking the Coming Soon page periodically for any updates on release date information. If you have any specific questions on the release dates, you may also contact Cisco Press Customer Service.
However, the following training course is recommended to help prepare for the exam: Managing Industrial Networking for Manufacturing with Cisco Technologies (IMINS2)

I would like to know others opinions (if there are any out there ) on the IMINS2 E-Learning. I am currently working my way through it and it has been a very poor experience for me so far. This is the first E-Learning I've used but from reading about the other courses it does not seem to match the quality of the others. There are no sims to practice configurations and only small quiz's (normally 7 questions) after each section that have very simple questions that don't seem like they will match the difficulty of the actual test. I feel like this should almost be treated like a beta course that is released for free and uses the users to help edit the product into something more polished and worth the $350. This would also bring more users to the IMINS2, which is severely lacking in users as seen by the groups very small number of postings and other general support.
There's a ton of potential in the market for what the IMINS2 is focusing on (bringing network connectivity to the plant floor) but there aren't a lot of people who are aware of it and a course with only one $350 dollar resource made for it (literally nothing else out there for it) and no word of mouth or info on the benefits of getting the cert is a gamble many people aren't willing to spend $350 on.
Take this all with a grain of salt as I have not attempted the IMINS2 test yet so I do not know how the test stacks up against what the E-Learning content is. I'll give a fuller review after I have attempted the test in September.
