Great pacing, clear instruction. Still early in the course, but it is just what I needed as refresher, so far.

Sushant13 October 2020

I chose this course after seeing the high review ratings. Alan has covered the topics very well and the sample questions were very helpful. I was able to clear the exam on first attempt. Thank you Alan. You have done a great job!

Sumith9 October 2020

Excellent Course , very well designed as per AZ 500. Perfectly aligns. Just little more usage on using AZ commands as well could have made all round

Allan8 October 2020

This man really knows his stuff. I particularly really like the theory part, straight in to the practical. This has really exceeded my expectations in terms of his ability and clarity. He easily proves his knowledge with the practical straight away. I would recommend this to anyone doing this course and indeed, I would recommend this for the Azure Administrator course. I have found a lot of teaching in this that I was questioned on for the Azure Administrator exam.

Mark1 October 2020

A great course with excellent explanations of content and instructions on how to implement items within Azure.

Adam27 September 2020

The walk through of the concepts using hands on lab was really interesting and also helpful to learn some side channel information

Franklin23 September 2020

Great explanations. Alan knows very much the topic and he provide extra efforts for his students to pass.

Jouni16 September 2020

Sorry but if I'm honest, it's pretty annoying to listen you talking because you don't have that normal flow that people usually have when speaking, this is more like one word at the time. Also, you repeat way too much yourself, and talk little bit like you would be talking to a retard person. But sure this is really good way to have longer videos and therefore more material.

Eduardo15 September 2020

The AZ-500 course is complete and it's always updated by Alan. I've been studying for almost a month and during this time the exam has been updated so he updated it alongside the exam outline and it not only cover the content but a bit more in case you are going through this exam without never used Azure before. In my case I've taken other exams but it will suit fine for those who haven't

Vinicius7 September 2020

Thank you Alan Rodrigues for being an amazing instructor and top course. This course is excellent and helped me too much to PASS in AZ500 oficial exam. I recommend this course!

Ruma6 September 2020

The course was fine and the tutor has put in a lot of efforts. Pros: The course is updated as per the changes/updations in the course structure by Microsoft. Cons: I felt that it would have been better if the tutor could have focussed more on the concepts instead of just labs while teaching. After taking this course, I am still confused and not very much clear on few of the concepts.

Rajesh5 September 2020

Starting this course just now assuming further courses will explain in depth for knowledge and certification. Found the answer to question is wrong , Azure AD Identity Protection... Risk has to be Medium where is it is written as LOW.

Frank24 August 2020

Excellent course and nice to see the instructor adding a bunch of new lessons after the course has already been published.

Thinh24 August 2020

I took my AZ-500 test last week and passed it! Practice tests in this course were a big reason for my success! There were at least 20 questions on the test that were directly taken from these practice tests! Also, the case study I got on the test was almost the same as the "Case Study 2 - CloudPortalHub.docx"! Even though I didn't get the lab tasks in MS test, I can say that the content and practice questions were a huge help! There were 4-5 questions on "MS Sentinel" which is not covered in this course. So, please include that topic in the future course updates.

Huy4 April 2020

Alan is an excellent instructor. As always, he explained the concepts in details and his courses are very well structured. A+
