Priyanka1 September 2020

It was a good course and i got detailed information about the content which i want in the course... and quiz was good .. thanks :)

Rodrigo26 July 2020

i really liked all explained. The instructor gives a real examples, show a many types of network devices and configurations since Small Office to Biggest Networks!!

Mark3 May 2020

I have been following Marious courses for some time now. I like that he takes his time to explain things simply and with no rush. He also is very good at providing real world tips. Most importantly you can tell he loves to teach and this is important and explains why his courses are very good. 5 stars from me!

E.7 April 2020

I had started this course before back when it was CCENT but i didn't finish it to the CCNA level. Before i distinctly remember this course being much harder it's only now i realized that the course wasn't hard at all it was my lecturer, not that he didn't know his stuff, he did he was very experienced but his teaching skills was off. now that I'm doing this course with Mr. Kuriata it seems much easier his teaching ability in general is flawless.

William22 March 2020

This was my second go around with Marious and again I am not disappointed. I like the style of teaching. I got through my ICND-01 pretty easy and waited for this exam instead of get the old one transferred.

Agbonghae22 December 2019

Yes it is a good match for me and i like the way he explain the hardware components of the cisco device. i appreciate the time and effort

Tom29 August 2019

Disorganized. The update for the new exam materials is just tacked onto the end, and multiple pieces of information conflict with multiple other pieces. For example: At one point, instructor says the RIP protocol has been removed from the exam. Later he says "it's back!" Which is it? It's a thirty year old protocol that (literally) nobody in the real world uses anymore.

Gus18 May 2019

Too much talking about different things but about the subject. As an example on the overview of encapsulation all I got is that a box is inside another box. On the 7 layers did not get anything out of it, he gave an example and did not gave the answer.

Pankaj9 May 2019

It was nice explained and covered all CCNA topics. Thanks Mr. Marious, you have created best of best one to get as much as possible.

Aga22 February 2019

A really nice course. Easy to understand. Many interesting real world examples. Very detailed and informative. I really enjoyed it. Thanks!!

Lawrence16 November 2018

This is a very good course with good explanations. I will recommend this course for people planning to take CCNA examination and also those already on the job. Good Job !!!!

Tony26 August 2018

There are some parts in the coding process of the Cli that is not directly explained but rather done by the teacher. Nothing that can't answer ;) , but just sayin. All good nonetheless.

Ron22 August 2018

I took the Network+ course at the Community College and was lost. This helped clear some of the sticking points. The instructor was very informative with his knowledge of the subject and what the exams will cover and what they do not. Real World samples are more of what these courses need. The colleges are behind in technology and I know people who were NOT up to par in the real world when they were done with college classes.

Eric28 May 2018

This is a detailed and well-made CCNA training course. The instructor conveys subject matter in a fashion I can relate to and understand. Very good product and I recommend getting it.

Benard18 April 2018

The material is very clear and easy to understand. I like the way every thing had been broken down so far.
