This is a great course by all standards. This course is supposed to be practical in nature especially the System Administration part so that students can practice all the permissions that were taught.

Alex Campos was a terrible presenter; Jude Lancaster was good; but Dmitriy Beryoza was absolutely amazing: he's organized, speaks at the perfect speed (uninflected), explains thoroughly and clearly, and has no grammatical/pronunciation issues (which greatly diminished Alex's presentations). The course material had a bit of repetition, but was generally very well done.

Dmitriy was unique, in that he let you know when he was deviating off into esoteric minutiae that was not central to the topic. Can you get him to do ALL the courses from IBM?!?

It was really informative. The instructors are professional at what they teach and overall I'm satisfied with the course. The main area of improvement: while some of the speakers were not native, some of them were, but in the end, most if not all of them were quite difficult to catch up with every so often because of their unclear articulation. Also, the images used and sound quality in the lectures were not up to par.

I would like you to have more questions for the third week, as the content was quite long, it could be better explored. About the fourth week, I think the content was great, there could be more questions. An important issue, the questions could be random on each trial. Thanks for all!

Its mostly theory based although there is a little bit of practical applications.Courses like these should provide more hands on practical methods of teaching.The instructor seems to know/have a very vast and wide knowledge on the subject.I was impressed with the teahing.

Not five stars because on video Key takeaways crypto & encry the presentation is repeated and only the audio not slide or graphical images or images ...only dark on background ... it's ok or there is some problem? i retry more times with the same result.

S​ome errors on some of the quizzes, not so much the practice quizzes. Unfortunately, had to wait 8 hours to take a quiz again. Quizzes need to be corrected.
