Overall Satisfaction with A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

I was interested in Cloud Computing options that were available, so I signed up for a one year subscription to A Cloud Guru. I completed several introductory courses and then decided to go for a certification. So I took the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner course which helped me pass the certification exam on the first try. I really like the way the courses are setup and the sandbox labs which are used for completing exercises.

Pros

  • Good pace of the instructors
  • Sandbox instances for hands-on practice was excellent
  • The knowledge checks and quizzes were very helpful

Cons

  • The learning curve for using the labs was pretty tricky
  • The practice tests could have more questions
  • I remember having issues with resuming the course after a break
  • A Cloud Guru has not had any impact, positive nor negative, on my overall business objectives.
For me, A Cloud Guru was the best platform for learning and retaining what I've learned. I really enjoyed taking courses at A Cloud Guru. Other platforms where too slow, or seemed to be trying too hard, and I never felt like I was learning much compared to A Cloud Guru.

I believe A Cloud Guru is well suited for studying for certification exams. I tried out several online courses and A Cloud Guru's was by far the best in my opinion. If I had more free time I would DEFINITELY be taking more courses and getting more certifications. Once I complete my degree coursework and finally have my bachelors degree I will be back on A Cloud Guru in my spare time to get more training and in turn more certifications.
