This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

Great and very intuitive. Better than the traditional hit the wrong button/lose points.

This was effective way to provide a ton of information in a short time period.

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

Very good material, the instructor was clear explaining the topics, and the labs were easy to follow it.
