Roberto8 October 2020

Scott does an amazing job explaining each section and thanks to him I was able to pass the az-104 exam!!

Kuldeep6 October 2020

Course is really good and the instructor is well informed on the subject . Need little practice for which the instructor has pointed out really good labs . happy learning .

Keri5 October 2020

This course was a great tool for preparing for the exam and helped me complete the certification. Thank you very much for the insight and topics covered.

Ian5 October 2020

Very good course. Very detailed. Like Scott's presentation and delivery style. Very thorough course, not to do the exam!

Hrishikesh30 September 2020

Scott Duffy has done a wonderful job in creating the course content and really sets the bar high by regularly updating the course matching any permutations made by Microsoft. This can be a great starting point for anyone with basic cloud knowledge interested to know more about Microsoft Cloud. This course as well as the other resources shared is worth every penny!

Eric27 February 2020

Outdated. If Im going to pay money and the statement is going to say it is updated to 2020... then why am I seeing commands that are from early 2019 to late 2018?

Meinout26 February 2020

There are several Azure 103 trainings around; like acloudguru or linkedin training; this one seems more focussed on the certification requirements and more up2date

Igors24 February 2020

course is good, but in some lectures could be shown way how to get those sections in azure, like - go to dashboard, then resource groups and then choose your group, because layout of my free azure account doesn't look the same as modified one that speaker has

Rafah19 February 2020

Navigation is a bit fast by the instructor. on a few occasions, the presenter is not showing how he got to a specific screen. I have to pause and find my way through it. Example: Section 64 - no mention how he got to template, and the content of the Json file.

Tanimu18 February 2020

I had a lot of experience with Microsoft AD deployment but most of the deployments are on premise ones. Now with Azure knowledge i have added a lot to my skills for Online AD deployment.

Arun16 February 2020

Azure in nutshell, straight to the point. Very engaging and educating without any unnecessary contents. I hardly finish the courses I buy, but this one was a clear ride to finish line.

Hung15 February 2020

The videos are very helpful. I have learned a lot. Hopefully by the end of this class, I will have a good foundation to prepare me for the exam.

Bryan15 February 2020

This was a good course however I think it may not be in-depth enough to pass the exam, it seems like more of an overview. I would supplement with many other courses or formats, video, and books.

Rakesh15 February 2020

Till here it is good, but I do wish the hands on was part of this... this could be a higher expectation, am not sure

Kevin14 February 2020

So far pretty detailed, I'm already fairly familiar with cloud infrastructure so translation is going well.
