Excellent and Exceptional course. This course blew my mind completely. I learned a whole lot more. I will vouch for this course a trillion times.

The author explains well, the course is appropriately paced. You have to write the code down yourself but you learn a lot already from the start

I will be super honest for this course, I had to give up, I was really wasting time in boring explanations, a course that is not challenging at all and they did not have imagination to create a lab environment or recommend something nice or challenge (There are really a lot of option out there)

There are videos that are cut in the middle, code that no longer apply and do not work even if you try really hard.

This course concentrates in windows computer (Windows computers!!!!!!) where sometimes things does not for the simple fact that is windows.

The attacks perform are with administrator accounts so obviously it will work.

I would recommend to retired this course and start from scratch. (I do apologize)

There is no hands-on and step-by-step instruction. It's a joke.

Maybe the instructor is an incredible e-hacker, but it is a terrible communicator, so an awful teacher: an absolutely linear voice, without a body expression ... it is a zombie or a robot. The subject is somehow challenging, and that is why he must stay focused ... but not boring. Teaching is not for everyone. Why people ar still thinking they can??? It is so difficult that it was even deciding to leave my cybersecurity training.

Good course material. Code files should be provided in addition to the course material.

There should be practical labs for people doing the course, it will be easier for us to learn and understand the code rather than just watching the video.

I trully have enjoyed learning from this 5 courses. My comment applies not only to this course but for the whole "Python for Cybersecurity" specialization. The introduction to the MITRE framework is great and the selection of MITRE techniques to be studied in the exercices is great as well. Explanations about cybersecurity stuff are crystal clear. Courses always follow the same pattern : content flows from theory to an in-depth use-case ending logically with a Python example that is a very good illustration. Python code is clear and well explained. Python code addresses security concerns for Windows or for Linux, which allowed me to discover some Window OS internals. I strongly recommend this course to everyone interested in cybersecurity and preferabily has always practiced Python.

the time of the course was really efficient . the 5 to 20 minute was really good and easy to listen several time. the teacher was really good i wish he explained more some concept . i learned a lots of things from him like scanning , initial access , and etc. this course was very good in case of teaching me things a bout attack vector and i will use them in order to defend against. one of the problem of teacher was his voice in this course. also this course could be a bit longer in case of number of video not the duration of the videos. i really liked this course and learned a lot about it and interested to finish the specialization of it.

I've been through many cybersecurity courses that just didn't get it. This is not one of those courses. I had to take the time to respond to this because it is succinct, clear, and concise, the best ways for me to learn. I look forward to the other courses here.

The code explanations are really good. The teacher does a great job at patiently going line by line and giving context and pointing out all the subtleties. One improvement is for quizzes to test on what is covered in the code that is analyzed.

Rating course as EXCELLENT, but wished that I could have carried out the lab. Struggled to follow how to achieve this. but have not given up.

Amazing. I wish there were scripts for more techniques, but this is enough to teach us how to write them ourselves. 5/5

Good course, but I feel more deeper explanation of the python codes would do much better. Thanks.
