It focuses more on theoretical knowledge..should focus on videos with practical explanations showing how to use tools perhaps...great lectures..

Some text was hard to understand, and the written text did not always follow the spoken text. The introduction content is up to the expectation.

S​ome of the audio in these courses was very poor, especially the cyber kill chain. I had to watch videos on you tube to learn this material .

Some of the instructors were hard to understand. Some questions in the quizes asked about topics that were merely browsed over in the video.

Useful, but several of the links take the student to missing/deleted articles. There are also many typos. Thank you for the introduction.

Excellent delivery of a comprehensive course overall. A small select few of the videos can be hard to follow due to poor sound quality.

A few of the materials and content seem to be very old (2017-2018). Otherwise good course to learn on the basics of cybersecurity
