Many broken links in the course reading list, and peer reviewed essays were unfairly rated - other students didn't follow instructions for ratings. Many exam questions were impossible to find in the reading material or via a search. Broken links may have prevented me from finding important material I needed to be able to study certain topics.

Too microsoft-oriented, too much reading (sometimes not very related to the topic) that is not unique and can be easily found on the internet without attending this course, not enough video presentations and explanations.

Final exam seemed to me a bit out of topic.

I want to be deeply honest, I really thought this course was made better, I was really hyped when I joined, because the title was really standing out. Yet. I learned something new, so I can't claim everything was already out, but yes, it could have been better.

The course content does not follow the exam question is totally different what you learn from the two-minute video. You need to have the background in the field. This course should have gone through the beta test before release to the public.

The subject matter is very interesting, the reading material is well-chosen, but the video lectures are superficial, to put it mildly. I recommend doing th course, but strongly suggest the staff upgrade the lectures.

The 3 stars are because it is a basic course, the questions were not hard, it will be like a introductory course for anyone wanting to start in cybersecurity, but is just the visible part of the iceberg.

The videos in this course do not contain much information (not enough to pass the quizzes). Most of the course material is actually links to other websites. There are some typos in the quizzes.

I find this course very informative, but at the same time the videos seem pointless. All the quizzes are on the suggested reading material. The videos are quite cursory- almost an afterthought.

This course was really good but not too deep. I went on to study the CISSP manual and some additional training. This is a great course if you want an introduction to cybersecurity.

Course is just about Ok. Gives you a very basic understanding of cyber-security. Does anyone actually read through the thousands of pages of material that they provide links to?

The free course is very short and only give a generalized information of the cybersecurity word. I can't review about the full course (but you should pay for it).

I found the course interesting though the continual music being played in the background was a distraction for me and felt like a brainwashing exercise.

A little bit too much generalist, need more precision.

And unlimited attempt for quizz is not a godd idea, because quizz don't mean anything

For those looking to understand the basics of cyber security, this is for you. This is not for intermediate or current IT practitioners.

Course material reference readings were good but videos were pathetic. It was more like a high school kid reading the slides.

I do feel that I learned from this course, though I almost feel that it was too easy to earn the certificate.

Some information was offline, some exams questions were difficult to interpret (and also were repeated)

The course isn't bad, but the videos explanations are all way to general, they should be more detailed.

It is actually too much reading compared to other courses. Like to have more lecturing videos instead.

Great introduction to the scope of cybersecurity. However, there is very little depth on any of them.

A good course for people who are trying to lean the basics of cyber security.

Too little course material; video's too flashy (noisy) and do not discuss enough information

Too much reading from outside sources. Videos are kept to a minimum and only the big ideas.

Quiz isn't challenging enough to validate the understanding of the user taking the course .

Somewhat basic, but have a lot of reading resources that are helpful for future studies.
