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.

It was very high-level and I learned very little from it. AWS Cloud Technical Essentials course had a great lab to work on,  and this one didn't contain any practical assignment. Instructors tried to be funny, but their sense of humor was childish and very cringe-worthy - not something I would expect out of a technical course. The whole idea of explaining services in "bees on Mars" context was ridiculous and made it harder to understand the topic. Referencing some real-life projects would be much more helpful. Many times the quiz questions were not in line with training materials. I found some typos and outdated information. Also, Hong has a very strong accent, and while I didn't have much problem understanding her, it was still a struggle to listen to her. Even the subtitles were wrong a lot of times when she was speaking (I'm guessing they were autogenerated). If you want to pay specifically for this course, you really should reconsider, as this is a big waste of time and money. The instructors were constantly saying to check out the public AWS training materials and whitepapers to get a better understanding of the topic discussed in the video - and to be honest, without those links you won't learn much... except for cheesy jokes.

By trying to be funny, the instructors were over-the-top corny which made the course ever so annoying. I couldn't wait to complete this course as it is a part of a specialization I seek. Further, one of the instructors (Hong) was incredibly difficult to understand. While she may be bright, her accent made it very difficult to comprehend what she was sayiing.

The educators were very funny and I'm grateful to them, but I'm not satisfied at all with the content, the lack of visuals and Labs. This is the 2nd course on the "AWS Fundamentals Specialization" and I feel the way it was performed differently to the 1st course.

The first AWS course in the AWS Fundamentals specialization was really interesting. But the AWS Fundamentals: Addressing Security Risk was terrible. It felt as if the instructors were just reading out the descriptions of these services.

It was hard to undertand some of the speakers without subtitels. The topics in the videos covers really poorly the tests. I found 20% of this course to be actualyl useful.

Very short videos but lots of concept. This course seriously needs to be update. There is a lot to grasp but very short explanation in video.

Zero effort to actually deliver anything useful to learn on this course. Without offence you are not right for this job, plus to be frank I had enough of the buzzy bee. You are supposed not to just summarize and provide links to the services which one can find by themselves, you are supposed to have prepared some material to concentrate information and some practical assignments...

Lots of jargon, very little explanation for a beginner, I didn't find the answers to the quizzes in their videos or the assigned reading. I felt the teachers did not have experience teaching and found much better explanations from other sources.

No labs, no good reading material (just a bit of text without schemas and deep exponation). No schemas, charts and diagrams appearing on the video. I wouldn't recommend this course.

I am not understanding the concepts taught in this course. The lectures given by Instructor Hong are not clear. I don't understand the words she says.

There were little to no demos, if this course could be integrated with more demos and not just naming the services AWS offers, that would be great!

They make it hard to pass the quizzes. They make you run around the internet for answers.
