About the Author


Kevin30 September 2020

The course, I find it somewhat vague, and outdated, the form of oral expression is very weak, and ultimately it does not meet my expectations, I have validated the program content of an oracle exam, and definitely, the different levels leave much to be desired,

Daniel15 June 2020

Not in depth whatsoever for the cost of the course. If you are taking this exam after 2016 this barely touches anything you will see on test.

Mohamed5 December 2019

It's amazing. I got a lot of knowledges. I recommend this course for everyone wants to begins with solaris 11.

Jerry31 October 2018

I'm pretty disappointed right now in the virtualization section. it comments that zones are the only (weird) virtualization possible, when in reality, depending on processor, platform, etc, there are (7) different types of virtualization, including zones, LDOM's (t-series), Domains (m-series), dynamic domains (10k, 15k & 25k), Oracle Virtual box, Xen, KVM. I'm also disappointed were the author incorrectly states that only Solaris can be ran in zones, this is incorrect also, other operating systems, primarily linux & BSD are available via Brand-LX, Brand-Z, and etude for older Solaris versions. Another big problem with the Zones modules is stating that everything is shared. Yes, that is true till configured, but pools, etc all memory, processors, disk space, etc to be allocated or restricted to zones. Not expecting a detailed explanition here for beginners, but to state it doesn't exist is just wrong. Closing out virtualization, specifically X86/x64 only virtualization, Solaris typically can live anywhere BSD, linux, windows, OS/2 or any other operating system can, to include QEMU, VirtualBox, VMWare, etc.

Instrutor conhece muito o conteúdo, material bem explicativo, treinamento perfeito, só faltou um versão em Português. Parabéns.

The course is perfectly outlined and teaching is on point. I feel like I have already passed the OCA Sol 11 certification. I will write in two days and my moral to write and pass is very high right now. Great job Bobb Roggers and the VTC.

Waldemar15 January 2018

Clearly spoken at a good pace and good coverage of the relevant topics. One of the better on-demand courses I’ve taken

Jesse24 July 2017

It seems like this course was written by someone with very little knowledge about the subject and then presented by someone with zero knowledge about the subject.

Edward28 June 2017

on some points it could go a bit deeper in de materie then it does now. i think assesments would help the course - install oraclebox (wich is free) install solaris (wich is free) and then give some things to do instead of saying milion times .. you just play with it. its not really a course more of a short video lecture.

Fabricio3 January 2017

Se tivesse uma legenda sobre o que está sendo falado seria melhor ainda, se ela fosse traduzida para o portugues seria muito mas muito bom!

Jamal5 October 2015

I've also read the OCA Sys Admin Guide for 1Z0-821. BOth are equally helpful. This course because it gives physical examples.
