Class had good pace, the curriculum appeared to focus on exam prep (which was good), the lab worked very well except for one small instance.

The class was fun. It covered a lot of material. Im glad the instructor insisted on our webcams being on. In addition, you could have more pop quizzes so that the audience is attentive.

Excellent.
Great delivery skills by the facilitator and good course content.
