The course was a decent match. Reminded me of a few things I'd forgotten about and showed me something new in the Windows Admin Center.

Alex was an extremely helpful instructor and always took the time to answer any questions no matter how small. He even took the time to engage in some Skype sessions to make sure any problems were addressed. Thank you.

great course! instructor and you can hear from the instructor's soft tone voice he's not rushing the content. Would recommend others who are entry level into IT to have a go or just a refresher if you're an IT Pro. Like a quote he always uses "very nice"

The instructor has great knowledge in his course. He provides clear and comprehensive information through out the course.

The course is good so far. It is simple enough for a newbie and even people with a little bit of experience can get something out of it

The course is pretty good. I like how the instructor kept it short and to the point. A few more quizzes I think would be fun.

This course is great and really informative. Velvet relaxed voice of the lecturer helps to digest information easily and the background music helps to really relax as well. The lectures are short and I find it very useful as the course can be taken during short breaks while at work or gym etc. I really enjoying listening to such a clear speech without any filler words. Although sometimes it gets monotonous. Also, I was hoping the lecturer would use something more professional like VMWare Workstation instead of a Virtual Box. I especially liked the DNS part of the course. Very informative and useful.

Fantastic course. Alex knows his stuff and has some great info in his course.. Clear and gets to the point on topic. I'm an old dog and learned some new tricks from him on the latest version of Windows. Tips to use Virtualbox was helpful to build my lab and practice..Thanks. I would recommend this course to anyone just starting out and/or needs a peek into Microsoft's latest and greatest Windows 2019. Thanks for an awesome course. Will watch out for more of your courses. Keep it up!!

I enjoyed the course, the instructor made step-by-step instructions for beginners while also providing a nice refresher for someone like me who has been away from the Windows Server platform after version 2008 R2.

Otto3 January 2020

I don't know if we use Server 2019 yet, but it's generally a good idea to future-proof yourself. The music was nice. Larger and more frequent quizes would be good.

Joe2 January 2020

Great course for a beginner! I really liked the step-by-step instructions and how the instructor explained every button and option and still kept it short. I think this course will be pretty useful for me and for anyone who wants to get up to speed quickly with the latest Windows Server OS.
