Instructor largely succeeded in presenting a very technical subject in plain English. My only recommendation is that a few of the technical terms could have been defined - course assumes you have a certain level of systems architecture background.

I like the fact that the materials were explained in plain easy to understand terms and that we were able to see the repetition in audit steps across the layers (helps to make the information stick)

I liked the course but the initial plan was in a different order than the slide show. The areas repeatedly discussed were not always the ones tested.

The audio disappeared for a few minutes right before the one-hour mark in the continuous play file. Other than that, I think this course was good.
