    Great Basic Linux Course with a lot of extras.....

    5.0

    This was a great basic Linux course with a lot of extras. I have tried several other basic Linux courses prior to this one, and in my opinion, Jerry was extremely in-depth in his teaching while covering a lot of material. In addition solely, in my opinion, what was extremely useful for me being from the US, was his clear pronunciation of the information he presented in the US English language. Prior I had watched/listened to other similar courses (definitely not with this much content), and I would have to say; a lot really has a lot to do with the fact a student can actually understand what is being presented. For me, Jerry covered all the learning bases. Overall extremely pleased with this course.
