The offers of outside help through email or whatever has been truly awesome!

For a course I wasn’t so thrilled about taking, I don’t think I felt more engaged or had as much fun as I did in Security +. PLENTY of laughs, great analogies, the material was broken down to a level that we could digest it and just overall learned a lot of really cool things I didn’t expect. Steve is a bad dude! I don’t know what else I could ask for out of this course. I got all I needed, it’s completely up to me now and I logged off our last class fully knowing and understanding that and was completely comfortable with it. 5 stars!”

He simply just made it fun and kept us in it. I mean Steve. Not sure why he made us watch a video we’ve seen like 6 times in this track already, but it’s a good video so we just went with it. LOL 😉 I kid.”
