Course content supplied quickly by IT Governance - the content was clear and concise in bite-size modules. Course certainly met with my expectations. I have taken and passed the exam. Overall, if I were to do something like this again, I would prefer and opt for Class/Live Online as mainly engaged in the course in my own free time due to operational reasons - though this is more of a personal issue rather than any sort of criticism of the course. That said, I rate the course as 5 stars
