This course was more intensive than the first one, but felt a little more hands-on. I am excited to see how the next course goes. I do feel I learned quite a bit in this course and it was challenging.

It was difficult with making IP smaller. More practice on that. Make it easier to view certificate. Still having trouble with that.
