I think I am now more ready for my lab exam. I passed my written one after using this course and I have been doing more and more practice. I intend to sit for my lab exam in a few weeks. Thanks for the nice courses that you have.

I’m in the middle of studying with this course and so far everything is okay. I hope the rest of the topics and lessons are like what I have come across in terms of presentation and the ease in understanding.

Nice course, but the instructor was a bit fast in some topics. I had to replay videos a number of times to understand. All the same, it is a nice course. It helped me a lot in preparing for my 400-251 exam, and I know I will pass both of the exams.

I’ve just completed the course. It has been great studying with this deep course. It covered a lot of things that I never knew existed in network security. I learnt about SDN, IoT, how to implement various technologies and ASA and many more things. It’s a great course, no doubt.

The video quality is good too. I learnt quite a lot and by the time I was going for my exam, I was confident that I would pass. And that’s exactly what happened. Thank you so much for the course.
