this is highly recommended for anyone that wants to understand everything cloud. It puts you right at the center of everything you need to know. In my opinion, this is a hot requirement for any cloud engineer as you can build on this knowledge

I like the fact that I was constantly immersed with the videos though out each course! Also, I enjoyed that after each lesson, you are given a quiz to see how much you have learned and what you can review/improve on.

Just enough details were included about computing, networking concepts, data storage, etc. to lay the groundwork for educating about the related AWS Services. Allows for those who have basic understanding to enforce what they know and build on it. The sections are also bite-sized and not overbearing in explanations so that more advanced learners can quickly get to the details they need. All-in-all it was a very well balanced learning and I believe it has prepared me for the next steps of my cloud journey.

I liked everything about this course. Was quite helpful to learn about all of the services that AWS has and to learn the names acronyms for the services that can be used.
The instructors explained everything about AWS in an easy to understand manner. The pace was just right, and the visuals provided in the videos were extremely helpful too. 10 out of 10, would recommend!
Great introductory course. It provides a high-level overview of some of the services that are offered, how AWS functions, and how services are related.
This was a great course to begin studying for the certification exam. A lot of detail but presented in a way that keeps you engage and awake!
Uses a combination of video, graphic, text elements in a logical structure, with good intro and summary pieces to each section. Well organized and designed in a way that people who learn best in different modes are well served.
