Overall Satisfaction with Pluralsight

I have been using Pluralsight to learn the programming language Swift, at a beginner level. With the help of Pluralsight, I learned it almost within 20-25 days which is a very quick turnaround time and I also use it to update my skills on iOS development. It provides very high quality video tutorials and I was really amazed to see the content explanation and its depth explained in a very easy and simple manner.
  • All the available courses have been explained in a very professional manner by International industry experts with the help of easy to understand course videos.
  • One can track their overall progress in learning with the option of pre as well as post assessments for the course module which provides a better insight on where one actually stands before the learning phase is started and after the learning phase.
  • I can always repeat any particular module if it is not clear to me on the very first attempt itself for an unlimited number of times. So, it is definitely better than classroom sessions where repetition can't be done.
  • They also offer a certificate for passing the assessments successfully.
  • There are no videos available for the expert level. It would be great to see that feature too as sometimes you need to look at the videos to understand the concept easily.
  • Due to the differences in environment, the exercises section gets stuck sometimes which confuses me and I can’t figure out my mistake.
  • While using XML instead of http, I got 5 different instances of an icon whereas I should have seen only 1. So, this is a major drawback of Pluralsight.
  • I am currently paying $29 per month as membership fees for using Pluralsight, but the knowledge I am getting in return is far more valuable and useful for me.
Lynda is only a half-assesed online course whereas Pluralsight has a robust catalog of courses.
Pluralsight has a robust catalog of courses starting from beginner to advanced levels. It is well suited for someone who wants to enhance their knowledge about latest trends, technologies and programming languages. Exploring the courses is very easy using the filters like popular courses, expertise level and more. Courses like Java, Microsoft and Android have been explained in a very detailed manner so that everyone can understand it.
