active directory in 17 reviews

I hope that there are more practical approaches in the lecture, there must be more labs about how to manage Active Directory.

Great Course Interesting insights in the day to day job of a sys admin with a particularly deep and interesting dive into Active Directory.

success great Most of the modules in this course are pleasantly brief, except for the lengthy module about Active Directory which was a little dry.

I would have liked to see more emphasis on Active Directory.

Maybe too detailed on Active Directory and not so much on Web Servers.

I personally didn't enjoy some lengthy parts about Active Directory as I'm sure I won't be dealing much with those features of the Windows OS in my career, but the concepts are interesting and useful nonetheless.

I really enjoyed learning how to maneuver with Active Directory.

feel like in 10 reviews

I really feel like a more confident I.T.

exellent thanks for everuthing I really hate giving this 3 stars because it is actually filled with a lot of material however I do feel like there was room to include more videos in substitution and/or as a supplement to the supplemental readings.

still feel like i need to know more Everything in this course is Great but I cant give it 5 stars because most of the Qwiklabs do not grade properly or do not work at all.

great Thanks for the exciting lectures interesting I feel like I learned so much!

I almost feel like it could have been split up into two parts.

I feel like there are some holes still in my knowledge but that's generally because I learn from doing.

I feel like this gets into the true heart of what it means to be an IT specialist.
