This training could be substituted with a 5-minute YouTube video. Not worth it.

Course should be included in the subscription, not worth $9.99. But hey I learned something I didn't know. Had high expectations.

It's clear and straightforward. It showed me things I'd never seen before. It was good for that. HOWEVER, it was VERY BASIC. Though I haven't looked on YouTube, I bet you could find MUCH better content there for FREE (and since this cost money, I'd say it's NOT WORTH IT.)

way too basic.

For Beginners to be taken extremely literal. Could be nice for someone with 0 knowledge of computers. Not worth $10. Gives the bare minimum of knowledge with Windows Defender and allowing / blocking in Windows Firewall. Could use more tasks in the labs to understand more functions and false flags.

Will not work. I have been trying to do these projects for weeks and they simply will not load. I have a gig connection and zero is wrong with my network. Please help. I have even tried different browsers and such.
