Compared to the NYU cyber sec intro course this one is not as "education" based, it is more reading palo alto documents and answering questions on what you read.

Great Start to figure out "what the heck is this Palo Alto thing which all employers are demanding that we know?" You'll definitely be enabled to answer that question and why employers are demanding it! In 2021, Palo Alto overtook Cisco in the market place for security. The ease of use and design for simplicity makes Palo Alto preferred by nearly every online blog, over Cisco and Checkpoint. I'm a fan, thanks to this training.

It is quite a comprahensive course on cyber security fundamentals, especially the topic of zero-trust is very interesting and well covered

Some of the presentations are not reviewed very well. If the pronounciation of the presenter is not clear wrong words are printed, which can be quite misleading.

I like it. Perhaps you will consider not reading the handouts fully. If we are told to read the printouts, why are you reading them in the videos?

Overall the material was informative. I would suggest to improve on the video by teaching the concepts in a different way than reading the course material. The video on Securing the Datacenter was the best in this course. I wish the course was more interactive and less reading of material.

Lastly, there was an instructional video on seting up the NGFW. It would be nice if there was software provided to be try it out.

Among all other cyber security courses available. I find this course cover bases of both beginner and intermediate. The reading materials is superb and its really not necessary to go through the videos as long the reading materials are mastered. The fact that it's not a peer reviewed, in my opinion is better as I do not have the luxury to wait for the certificate to be ready. The quizs on average is more in-depth, hence that more or less compensated the lack of peer-review.

The course is excellent. Its a very good combination of Reading content complimented by Appropriate videos as well as assignments which are subjective as well as objective. The course is pretty good who wants to have a broad understanding of Cyber Security.
