The Exam itself
The author starts the course with a clear vision and details the expectations. The flow of the course is very logical and easy to understand.
Very basic security skills Test exam content is average; some answers are not entirely correct or badly worded
The content covered is very relevant. However, I found that some of the presentation was a bit dry. I've taken quite a few online courses both on Udemy and other content sites, and this one was difficult for me to get through due to the dry presentation. Also, due to the cadence of the audio, running at over 1.5x speed is a bit difficult to understand.
With the details provided in each lecture I dont think any one will be able to pass the exam. Cannot use this to prepare for exam. Waste of Money.
This was a very comprehensive course and taught in logical way that clearly presented the material. It was clear that the instructor had extensive hands-on experience and the additional advice he provided will be very useful to me.
Content is good, but sound quality is not. It echo's. Ooo and the chapter/loading film handle is not great (slow and sometimes don't load/start at all.
Course just started but I believe the instructor knows what he is doing. I have already gained some new concepts on encryption.
Very good course because easy to follow and understand although it sounds a bit like a robot talking. For me, this works perfectly!
Good course, thanks! Some more docs for subject outline summary and guidance to download would help more.
Alan knows his stuff, and really tried in explaining it. still needs to learn more on how to teach. And I also have a some problem understanding his accent. Other than, he's very good and knows what he's talking about. Thank you
I'm missing a few things. When I encrypt a file using the techkey we created, the file gets encrypted. However, I cannot open the file. It is giving some kind of error dealing with signature version 4. But the solution is not mentioned in the course.
Till now I am liking the way the instructor is providing the explanation. I am able t follow along and learn the requirements. I edited the review as after giving the exam at the end I cannot get the result it just takes you to the conclusion of the course without giving the report and the answers
Good demos using AWS user interfaces. Could be made better by giving short description of newly introduced services, objects, whatever.
Clear, concise explanations with outstanding examples to demonstrate/reinforce the concepts presented. Presenter has a solid understanding of the AWS technology. Best AWS training course I have taken!
Many Thanks for putting together this excellent course. For anyone who wants to get in depth knowledge on aws as well appear the certification exam this course is must. The course content is enough for securing good percentage. It also helps in understanding the core concepts of AWS, which are needed for clearing the exam.
