5 stars Good experience

Good experience

4 stars Too much focus on Microsoft technologies
8/12/2016 9:05:36 AM - Abdel - Clearwater, FL US

Some technical inaccuracies. Overuse of analogies that are too simplistic, not relevant, not technical. Too much focus on Microsoft technologies and a bias towards them. The issue is that most of security tools used in the real world are not Windows based. Some important concepts were glossed over while other unimportant ones were talked about in length.

5 stars Instructor did an excellent job!

The trainer did a very good job of presenting and applying real world situations to the material.

5 stars Clear, Concise
