This course is giving me the broad overview of GCP, which is what I was looking for at this point. I'm using this in combination with qwiklabs in order to hopefully prepare myself for the Assoc exam while also getting a better understanding of GCP.

Hammad8 March 2020

Description of what members and roles are in IAM is totally incorrect. This instructor clearly seems to have little experience past trying to teach how to pass an exam.

Pablo5 December 2019

Es un curso demasiado lento, redundante y muy general respecto de los contenidos, hubiese esperado una revisión de los productos de GCP en mayor detalle y dejando de lado los ejemplos prácticos, considerando que este curso tiene como pre requisito estar familiarizado con GCP en términos generales

Les1 December 2019

Second course on GCP ACE other was Coursera course by Google this is more real world and less high level overview.

Janusz17 September 2019

Clear presentation and explanation of subjects that can show up on the exam. The Beta exam (somehow outdated today) is discussed in depth.

Elias16 September 2019

wish there was more Hands on activities like LinuxAcademy has. This is an expensive youtube channel. But the information is good.

Pavlo14 April 2019

The author is referring to the official google cloud documentation, too often. Looks like the course​ was quickly prepared by the lazy guy.

Nishanthi3 March 2019

Hi I'm happy to say I passed the exam and this course helped me tremendously. so thanks to the instructor! I have been working in the GCP environment for the past 2 years and I found the exam fairly challenging. There were many questions where the right answer just clicked from what I remembered from the lectures! For other test takers, I'd say going to the links that is mentioned in the course is a must. I kept reading through the links as I went into the google documentation (feed your curiosity). There are a lot of questions on Networking, found only one pricing question (much to my disappointment), lots of command based questions(kubectl, gcloud).

Locke7 February 2019

Provides good coverage for exam. Feels like it was rushed out, which makes sense since it was the first course on the exam. There are some hiccups in terms of precision of language and consistency, but nothing that really undermines the objective. In one lecture, the audio was missing for a few minutes. Overall, it gets the job done even if it wasn't one of the more enjoyable courses to go through.

Andrew4 January 2019

Read Googles exam prep and then go read Google documentation don't bother with this "Bootcamp". The bootcamp tells you to go read Googles documents. I had the audio set to 1.5 speed because the instructor is slow. At 1.5 speed the audio seems normal.

Guilherme2 January 2019

I was really expecting to have something really useful, but there is a lack of information, just a quick overview, not going through really good examples, no command line execution, just reading and going, most of the time, through the Google Web Console. I am not ready to take any exam with this course. My expectation was to have something like "A Cloud Guru" for AWS.

Gary17 December 2018

Provider: Thank you. It's good to have any content for this certification. There isn't much out there. I'm pretty sure some of the questions/answers (3 or 4) are not correct. Probably just entry mistakes. Consumer: I haven't taken the real exam yet. I'll see if I can update the comments after it's over. Even with mistakes, I currently recommend this practice test. Errors and all it's always good to research answers you aren't sure about. You can learn even from questions that have errors in them.

Niko11 December 2018

I needed the Associate cert for my new job which deals with GCP. I saw the GCP console for the first time on Nov 26, and bought this course with the idea of trying to get the Associate cert asap. After 2 weeks and a day of this course and reading the recommended documentation, I passed the Associate exam without much trouble on Dec 11. Thank you!

Palanisamy23 November 2018

There are lots of hints on what needs be studied from the google documentation. But what I expect was all that details are part of the course, so we don't need to go read the full details and waste our time. Important things from those pages should be copied to the course, so it is taught part of the course. There are way too many repetitions and boring to listen. Instructor is very slow on where he needs to be fast and fast on where he needs to be slow. There are no other better course available at this time is the truth behind taking this course.

Suresh8 October 2018

It should be more practical instead of theory. A proper sequence should be maintained while creating a project from beginning and should create that thing while going through that part theoretically.
