The reading link to Week 03's Framework and their purpose is Broken. Please Fix it. Everything else seemed perfect. I would recommend this course for people who think of starting their careers in CyS.

The content is good, but the audio quality is too poor, sometimes is difficult to understand especially if you are not a native speaker.

Hard to understand some instructors due to mic quality.

Extra unnecessary details that appear to act as bulk and just prolong the course.

Information is decent but the audio is absolutely horrible. Cannot believe that IBM allows such thing to be published under their brand.

The course content is well constructed. Only the structure and how the different chapters are put together could be better.

The transcription of the audio was problematic. The courses need proofreading and grammar editing for clearer learning.

Wish the audio was better, subtitles kind of helped but would have enjoyed this more if the audio was of better quality

I think the topics are reviewed in a rush, you need to look for external information to understand some of the topics.

We should be able to see the questions we got wrong and/or there should be an explanation of why we got them wrong
