Be A Citrix Hero Supplemental Links

by | Mar 28, 2020

Thanks for your book purchase! Oh, and if you haven't gotten a copy – head over to https://ctxpro.com/book to grab one! Also, don't forget to register for the bonuses if you haven't already! https://ctxpro.com/herobonus7

The way this works is simple. Each long link in the book has a reference here so that you don't have to type in the whole thing manually to visit the site. Bookmark this page! Then when you see a link in the book, come back here to find the reference number!

One final thing – if you find a link is incorrect, dead or needs to be changed – let us know in the contact form at the bottom of the page!
