subject matter

He uses great real life scenario examples and geek humor to make this subject matter fun to learn.

Thanks Mike is enthusiastic about the subject matter, so he keeps my attention.

As a seasoned pro, I still learned a lot due to his analogies and ability to simplify some pretty complex subject matter.

This course presents thorough and detailed explanations of subject matter.

While I have experience with the subject matter, I have yet to prepare for certification in a structured way.

You can definitely tell someone who has a passion for the subject matter apart from someone who doesn't.

Although Mike covered quite a bit in the videos, there were several questions on the actual exam relating to subject matter/scenarios the course doesn't touch.

He does a good job explaining the subject matter of the course.

it covers the whole subject matters Ha sido una buena elección Very informative and easy to understand.

MIke is, as always, a fantastic instructor with incredible energy and enthusiasm for his subject matter.

The instructor makes is very easy to understand and provides a lot of examples on the subject matter.

professor messer

Been using it along with professor messers study guide for the 501 exam.

I find Mikes videos to be a little more entertaining and easier to follow than professor messer.

You're better off looking at Professor Messer in youtrube since it's free I work at a ups hub, so I’m doing manual labor yet it’s easy to put in headphones and listen to the courses This course is definitely a good match for me, and Mike Meyers is awesome!

I had been watching professor messer but I really like you're upbeat tempo and examples.

He is better than Professor Messer but at least Professor messer provides notes for a fee.

Get this video series, watch Professor Messer on YouTube, read books, articles, and Wikipedia; and take an unholy amount of practices tests.

I switched over to the free version by Professor Messer and got way more out of his lectures.

For the moment is good but in certains topics I need to look for Professor Messer in YouTube, because he explain deeper than you.

threat actors

Enthusiastic about the subject and slightly comical with Mike dressed up as the threat actors.

But few information are not covered in the previous topic as in threat actors are still classified as more than what has already been explained.

learning about threat actors good It is a good course so far.

Good video quality I think the section on threat actors can be expanded; more in-depth.
