Really liked the teaching style of the instructor. Exercises felt relevant and we created full works vs. just practicing and following steps in the book.

I would highly recommend NetCom because they are professional and I learned so much in the classes. The instructors are amazing. I think like the classes where some so I felt it was a very personalize situation, therefore I got so much more out of it. Classes are not easy but very professional and I love that you can retake the course and view online (webinar) nothing bad to say.
