The course is good in general. However, there are a few points that this course (and perhaps the whole SSCP specialization) could improve: 1) adding a 'Summary' at the end of each module; 2) adding more notes after each video for a summary; and 3) revisiting the quizzes and assignments (I found that the assignment in Week 3 is a bit off compared to what have been discussed in the lectures / videos and/or previous quizzes; perhaps adding more details and solutions could be helpful). I believe the Certified in Cybersecurity (CC) specialization from ISC2 does better in terms of linking lectures, videos, quizzes, and assignments together; as well as putting materials after each video as a recap. After the course, I believe students can revisit quickly and even take the CC exam. However, it is not the case for SSCP specialization at the moment. But anyway, good course!
