Content was quite good. I learned a lot. Though I am curious if anyone is editing these courses. The spelling and grammar errors are numerous and distracting. It's very unprofessional and someone should be able to, at least, spell the names of the IBM products. Thank you.

The Penetration Testing portion had good examples with Links to use when we actually do it.

Python scripting is just beginner level & can be advanced if possible.

Incident response & Forensics are moderately good.

Good for overview of topics. However more graded hands-on lab should be provided (as Google does) instead of just providing links in additional resources.

Pros: Very straightforward and good frameworks for a number of topics.

Cons: Dated (old tech), some lessons have audio that drops in and out

The course contents and the reading materials are a good introduction.

One of the course audio was not clear. hence the reduction in rating

Great course and really got to learn a ton of stuff! Would have been more helpful if hands-on demos were included in some of the topics.

Course Content is excellent.

One Star reduced for the audio quality, which was not audible in many cases.

I think a little more guidance for the labs is needed, specifically in Penetration Testing.

Audio is better than average for IBM, although this course is really basic.
