I took this course after I was convinced by a colleague who had taken the same course before. I was a little sceptical about it, more especially because I had been disappointed by another course before. Though I was reluctant at the beginning, the whole thing actually surprised me. The training is on point and covers the exam objectives in detail. For the first time in my professional life, I have come to love video courses. Thanks for making it easy for me to navigate through the course topics, concepts, and everything regarding the SY0-410 exam.

This is such a nice course on security. I have been in networking for sometime and came to love this course as soon as I started with it. I can’t really compare it to the other courses I have taken before. But if I had to do so, I would say this one beats them all. The course is precise, video clarity is high, and the practice test that I downloaded has really helped understand the concepts more.

It’s a good course for cybersecurity. I like the details involved. Only consider doing something about the practice test. Maybe, you could add a few more tests. All the same, the course is good.
