The course covers a lot of content and there is a lot of supplementary information that is part of the reading material and must be covered to get a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.

Excellent Experience. Couldn't expect anything better. Both the instructors were cheerful throughout the duration of the course and made me build my colony on MARS. Thanks from Elon Musk as well.

I enjoyed the course, the instructors were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It's a good next step if you've done some work on AWS and want to understand the suite of services available to better secure your environment. It definitely helped tie together my understanding of the many moving parts across various services. I would have preferred more real world case studies than the bees, which felt childish at times. Overall the material was well presented, dense but not overwhelming, and worthwhile.

Overall, this course can do better. I think the videos focus too much on theory rather than showing working examples. In this line, the better approach would be to use AWS to do practicing. Using actual AWS services (eg. how we use QWiklabs in Google IT support certificate as a practice). I wouldn't mind if this course is 60-80% practice lessons on AWS.

Plenty of valuable information in this course, but there are several quiz questions that are either in the wrong week or do not align with the notes from the course. Do yourself a favor and download the lectures notes and skip the videos. It goes a lot faster and you'll retain the information better this way.

I was re really satisfied with the course offering, as I am new to AWS. The videos are not too long and the concepts are explained well, using many examples to assist you in understanding a concept or process. Thank you to Coursera for making learning so simple and effective!

Course videos and reading materials are well explained. Rudy is awesome dude, Hong as well, but I didn't understand Hong sometimes, thanks to subs. But demo and some projects wasn't enough, I hope AWS will add some projects for us, hands-on experience definitely required.

Pontos positivos: Conteúdo bem extenso. Instrutores bem preparados e bem humorados.

Pontos negativos: As vezes as perguntas dos quiz não refletiam o conteúdo apresentado. Boa parte do conteúdo foi apresentada de forma superficial sem muitos laboratórios práticos.

Very good content and well delivered. Reading sections are key to further the understanding of the concepts. Quizzes are just the right difficulty level to ensure the learner has taken the time to understand and read up on the subject matter.

This course is a good comprehensive overview of the broad range of products that AWS offers. Being a beginner, it made me aware of the multitude of products but other than that its missing the hands on part but maybe that was intentional.

there was a far less demo videos in this course and was a little bit of confuing too ( i dont know if it is because of new stuff or because of the anomalies ), beside this the course was great and helped me learn lots of new stuff.

I learned a lot in AWS Fundamentals: Addressing security risk and now I developed a sense of understanding how the security issues handled in any organization in real time. But I really don't have much hands on experience. Thanks!

A good course that introduces the concepts of both AWS and how to secure your environment. I strongly encourage those taking this course to read the webpages found in the links included in the Reading sections.

it was a beginner course in my opinion. concepts were easy to understand and well taught.

the quizzes had duplicate questions. but were easy to solve if you were paying attention during the videos

Very nice review to have a basic understanding of what's available for security in AWS. Would've been nicer to have an in-depth example of using each service. Maybe in a complementary course.

Excellent material and overview. Some of the quiz questions were not covered in the course lecture but overall a good course for understanding the underlying terminology in AWS.

Great course, I struggled to hear/understand the lady. I had to read the lecture when she was giving it. She knows the subject matter very well, but the accent I struggled with.

The content of the course met my expectations. However it would have been better if more time is spent on demos. The instructors rushed through many of the important concepts.

Good one related to security. Need more labs like how GCP is covering in their course. Ofcourse GCP can't beat AWS but still AWS needs to have more labs and capstone project.

The materials are good but there are too many concepts and services to learn. I wish they could provide a summary at the end to summarize the key concepts and services.

It was great to gain insights into security aspects of AWS but I would like to see more short demos of mentioned services like CloudTrail, GrandDuty, etc.
