The lab environment wasn't working properly. Also, the introduction into Burp Suite is very basic, much of if you can find on Youtube. Save your money, watch YouTube and install the Community Edition on your laptop.

This course never gave option to practice.The cloud was inefficient to use and the required software was not installed on it.So the course was difficult to understand.Kindly improvise the cloud experience.

The necessary software and settings are not preinstalled, thus making it impossible to complete all tasks and follow along with the instruction. If this is fixed, it will be 4 stars.

Can be better and longer. It was not what I was expecting. Definitely not for someone who is just starting web security.

Nothing prepared on Rhyme. I can install Burp Suite myself but without a prepared testbed there's nothing to test on.

Its a guided project and was not functional although the content is good.

The video explanation is perfect. In order to get an overall experience, there should be a proper cloud-based environment to practice the skills learned.

In this course, the cloud-based environment has a hanging problem even in an Alienware laptop which I am using. It also pops up lots of errors which makes the entire experience quite messy and not up to the mark. We could get the same video content for free on youtube. The only reason anyone would buy this course is for the online cloud services which they provide. If that is not proper I find no point in buying this course and I would strictly not recommend this to anyone.

Seems alike a scam!

The setup environment is not complete.

Further, there are no instructions how to install the missing software, you have to dig yourself through the internet.

The author ignores all the forum's posting about these issues and does not provide answers.
