I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.

The tool provided to practice the course teachings is very functional and easy to use.

Good Course. We covered a lot of material in a short amount of time. This course had useful labs that built upon each other.

The class was good, but at times the pace did seem a bit fast to actually try to remember some of the information.

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.
