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!

The course labs should have more practice sessions in order to have the materials well in hand.

The courses get more challenging, but accessing the support through chat really helps.
