Everything is really good, but it would be nice if all of the resources were on one website or at least shared a login. I don't like that I had to create three new accounts to manage the course resources.

The instructor is very good and very accommodating and excellent in answering participant's questions.

J`aime l´environnement, la façon dont les labs sont organises. Sauf que je ne peux pas faire de click droit sur ces pages. Pour les labs çà aurait été utile.

AZ-300 course experience was good . Eylem Uysal was very good, the best instructor and i had really good experience attending course and classes with Eylem.

Excellent remote class environment and it was a good experience of remote learning.
