It's good for developers and those with technical backgrounds, but not for business personnel.

Class & instructor was very knowledgeable. I can honestly say I received a lot of information that I am retaining for my exam. Material was taught in the right tone for IT and non IT students.

Knowledgeable instructor with lots of resources provided and a clear teaching style.

Great delivery skills by the facilitator and good course content.

Like the class materials and labs. The content is large, and the labs helpful, but when I get on my own, I will not have instructions like lab has and that is concerning as I will not be sure what I need to use or not use on a lot of the item builds. Will require a lot of practice to learn to use.
