Great course, lots of very challenging and useful information. You'll learn about Linux and some of the inner workings of Windows, plus lots of tools and programs that are really useful. Great course!

One of the labs with Linux partitioning was extremely difficult and it if wasn`t for the qwiklabs assistance I would have never gotten it.

a lot of the Linx portions were tough, had to go back several times to check the commands, and searching for the errors in linx was rough.

I used to think I am good at Windows Operating System but I learnt through this course that I still need to learn more. I am happy I did.

the labs can be very challenging for weeks 2 & 3,depending on your OS. A very informative course on Powershell and Linux for newcomers.

The last exercise for the course was tough! But worthy in that it really made me commit to troubleshooting and thinking things through.

It was a good course. The graded assignments could have been designed better. It was like simply copy-pasting the commands given there.

This so far was the most difficult course, because the commands are complex! But in the end, it left me feeling even more accomplished.

Some assessments were a bit aggravating, but overall an incredibly fun course that I recommend to any IT-interested people out there!

Great course, but a TON of information and topics are covered. I wish there were more exercises built in to give us more experience.

Although the information was presented clearly, I found it really hard to jump from GUI, to PowerShell, to Linux all really quickly.

Such an interesting course, it provided me with a lot of skills to use them on my operating sys to generate such a powerful machine

Good module, the trick to get the interractive sessions to complete is to spend more than 5 mins on it even if it only takes you 2!

Some of the commands for the labs are a bit outdated in terms of syntax or destination, but otherwise a pretty good overview of OS.

Very good content no matter what level of knowledge you have, and should be required learning for everyone in HS level IT courses.

Last two assessments were a bit vague in instructions, but the overall course was challenging, yet very technical and informative.

This course is the best to start from the basic knowledge of Operating Systems.We get enough about troubleshooting our own device.

Very good course. The end of course exam was pretty tough. Especially the part where we had to figure out on our own. Good stuff.

Great overview of the Operating Systems. Only complaint I have is some of the labs need workarounds to get them to work properly.

The only problem with this course are assessments. You must improve them, it is so frustrating to do all right but not get grade.
