Feedback from students

"This course gave me the confidence to go for my first AWS certification."

"Alan's Q&A has really helped me achieve the certification. His course content is very relevant from the exam perspective and his lectures are the shorter compare to CloudGuru, which to me is great as I am time pressed."

The AWS platform is one of the largest cloud platforms. The AWS Certifications are one of the most sought after certifications.

The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner is the newest entry level certification from AWS. This is a must have for any student who begins their journey to Cloud computing with AWS. 

After taking the exam myself , this course has been structured in such a way that it will help students to become more confident if they want to appear for the certification exam.

I am a Certified AWS Cloud Practitioner and hence this course is designed specifically to help student pass the Certification exam

Recommended course to all the beginners who want to know and build their career in cloud techonology.

Aditya23 August 2020

This course is very well designed. on completion it gives us immediate knowledge levels on the course content

Ravi18 August 2020

Only thing I observed is that it is moving slow, and so I run at 1.25x times some of the videos. And the points are repeated sometime, which can be avoided to save time. Since this is online Video course, no need to repeat the concepts and points. We run more than once to gather the key points.

Ravishankar7 August 2020

The course is good. the practice test is very exhaustive and I don't think the videos covers all the queries asked in the practice test. The course is structured well and gives an initial ideas on the AWS and cloud computing. This field is very huge and realised after attending the practice tests.

Sam4 June 2020

This is my third course with Alan. He is a wonderful instructor. His content and practice tests really prepared me for the exam. If you are thinking "IF" you should buy this course. Don't hesitate. Alan can definitely help you get there!

KAVYA9 February 2020

i passed my practitioner and azure fundamentals only because of this mentor.. i would like to thank you heart fully for creating this beautiful content and helping beginners like us ...keep going sir !

David12 January 2020

Decent course, but not as good as others covering the same topics. I would have appreciated more frequent quizzes to check my understanding throughout the process. The organization of topics seemed somewhat disjointed. Final quizzes referenced services not actually covered in the course. Still, for all that, it seems to cover the key material and I think leaves me decently prepared for the certification exam.

Rinku6 January 2020

Course is good but not mobile app friendly you can barely see the the content, screen could be more zoomed in because it is hard to read.

Ken5 January 2020

Would like to have more quizzes along the way to test how well I am retaining the material I'm learning.

Spauls1231 December 2019

I took the Amazon version of this training and this presenter has much more personality... which makes it much easier to consume the material.

Mike30 December 2019

Very good content, very good pace. The practice exams are also very helpful, allows me to review the answers and learn more after you complete each test.

Todd16 December 2019

The class was done very well. I have no complaints. The reason for 4.5 star is that I found another course very similar which was a bit better than this course. Therefore, this is a relative rating.

Stephen13 December 2019

I like how the content is broken into units of 4 - 8 minutes each. This is easier to learn, stay focused and take a break if needed.

Liz13 December 2019

It is very informative so far. I am new to this so this introduction helped take some of the questions about what the cloud is and what it is intended to do.

Hstanton11 December 2019

The course speaker is v.e.r.y.... slow, can't be downloaded entirely for poor streaming connectivity issues. Powerpoints and presentations should be downloadable and in a format that cannot be modified.
