Too many issues I experienced with the course. I like the fact that I get hands on with the curriculum. However, the week one project instructions contained many errors which made it difficult and frustrating to follow. Accessing the AWS VM was another frustration which came from the instructions. I do not know how to hack and was using the course to develop a base knowledge to add to my Info Sec skills. If the instructions were easier to follow I may have stayed enrolled but they were frustrating at least for me. This may be a good course for someone with a foundation already but I do not know.

Se asume que el estudiante tiene una tarjeta de credito y otras facilidades para todos los proyectos. Ademas el metodo de calificacion demora demasiado, acabe el curso hace mas de dos meses y hasta ahorita estoy recibiendo mi certificado. Uno aprende cosas interesantes pero los proyectos deberian estar diseñados de manera diferente y más sencilla

The perfect teaching given by Edward Chow and the main important thing is hacking material you can't get this type of material.

Try to complete full course with all specialization which is given by Edward chow.
