Lot of material was covered in 3 days. Would be nice to have some more time to process the lab sections, especially.

We covered a lot of material in three days. This was a real crash course in different AWS Infrastructure.

ExitCertified is a great way to gain hands-on experience through their virtual learning environment.

I would highly recommend this instructor. But would appreciate the Actual Slide material to refresh. Also exam prep doc would be an advantage

The ExitCertified Labs were good; however, some of them didn't work completely. I think it was Lab3 where we were using S3 versioning that didn't work.
