The instructor was the best teacher I have ever had at any level. I learned more in the last 7 days than I did studying on my own for the past 6 months. The material was presented in a way that was easy for everyone to understand. He by far had the most knowledge of anyone I have ever met in the subject and I hope to learn more from him in the future.

- James Barbee
Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.
- Byron Caswell
My instructor is a genius. He has the perfect combination of knowledge and humor. I learned so much this week and enjoyed every minute of it!
- Matthew Miller
Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.
- Thomas Dunn

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.
