The experience was absolutely great. The study material provided is quite effective, self-explanatory & for the most part, I liked that there were many questions from the test bank to help me prepare for the exam and I passed on 1st attempt!

Very good course, would have liked if the mock exams were a bit harder than the ones that were provided as the real exam was much harder but I already brought this to Jason's attention and he said he was in process of amending the mock exams.
