Very good couse and again we would like to see more videos on removing FRUs
Instructor was great, course was mostly very good except for too much focus on pricing
I liked the pace of the course. I like that I have more than instance to use the lab.
This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.
Although there seemed to be too many links for the course, everything worked smoothly.
