Classroom Experience - January 2021

Student Comments

  • “The instructor made all the topics easy to understand and had the information build onto its self (CMDLETS -> Variables -> Conditional Logic) So there was rarely a point where we used something that wasn’t taught to us. The labs were also very helpful since it gave us time to do research to find the correct CMDLETs and Syntax letting us.”
