Although it seemed complex at first, I found that the more you progressed, the more easily the preceding chapters were understood.

I liked the systematic approach to each topic, and the logical order in which they were presented (later sections explicitly built on topics presented in earlier sections, for example).

The course material was well paced, and the note taking tools were very helpful.

What I liked the most were the Try-it-yourself questions and Lab sessions, because they allowed me to practice and use the different commands available in the terminal. I also liked the fact that the course was very complete, it helped us, the students, to understand everything from the beginning.

A current course that helped me a lot when learning about the Linux environment. I bought a portable computer to install Linux, and work with programming. The course helped me to install and handle Linux. Great!

It's a great course. Both for new users and old users who need to recycle new ways to do things in Linux. Really like the depth in the bash coding chapters.
