Overall great course with good learning materials, instructor(Kevin Ruse) made the learning experience a breeze and was overall a great instructor

This is my second course with ExitCertified. Both classes were accelerated, and aside from being too fast paced for the amount of content, they were excellent classes with excellent instructors.

The course was in depth, plenty of resource were provided and learning practice exams.

I recommend this course for anyone who is interested in data mining and analytics.
