I really enjoy the subject matter presented in this course. The instructor was very well verse and presented the material in a easy to understand and professional way... Great job!

This is the first time I have taken course on ExitCertified. It's pretty good and it's very easy to learn and the layout is nice. The labwork is also presented pretty well.

Instructions were clear, lab exercises were pertinent and self-explanatory, topic was thoroughly covered in the presented course material.

Excellent class overall! The Instructor and the course material were the best so far, and I have taken a few AWS classes. I highly recommend it- Architecting on AWS.
