It was easy, clear and somewhat precise, though I wished that it would be in much greater detail; as in commands usage.

It would be very useful if you are brand new to it support. If you have some experience it could be a little redundant.

Course was great and easy to follow, however, constant issues with the labs and grading really drag down the efficiency

Learned a ton, but I wish the week-end tests were more like the final, without holding your hand as you go through it.

This course was little bit different from other course because it was very difficult from to understand the question

It was an awesome experience, but you should include more complex practical labs like the final one in between too.

At times it was tough and at times the lab instructions were a obtuse. But all in all the course was very helpful.

I ended up having to do all of the labs twice because they don't register as complete the first time! Please fix!

Buggy Windows labs that tend to not grade right as always, but I really enjoyed the material. A good foundation.

I am ok with learning powershell but I did not find it useful just yet. Rest was ok but labs was pretty annoying.

It's very good but Specifically talking about linux there should be more knowledge and practice should be given.

The content was great but the presentation was too slow paced, I had to speed it up by 1.25X and even 1.5X speed
