    This course was way over my technical knowledge in some subjects. Even though I don't have experience/knowledge in some of the areas, I still came away with new information. This is all due to how well Bill explained all the subjects.

    I prefer a course that isn't so singularly focused on the exam. While the exam is important the backend information is what will be applied on the job. Having time during the course for Labs is strongly recommended so the instructor can assist with them. I have taken several courses from New Horizons that included many hands on sections that improved information intake.

    The course was excellent, Mr. Clark was an outstanding instructor and the reference materials are well written. However, it is impossible to nail down all of the Security Plus material in only 5 days, so before I test I will need a fair bit more time to study.
