Gordon’s Cloud Academy Experience

“I believe that cloud technologies are the future of IT. Cloud Academy’s courses are detailed and thorough, and cover the type of esoteric questions that vendors tend to ask on certification exams.”

Gordon was impressed by the level of detail of our courses and quizzes:

“Cloud Academy courses are rich in detail.” “I like the depth of coverage and the quizzes. The quiz engine is outstanding.”

Gordon recommends going through as many quiz questions as possible to prepare for the exams. He especially likes that the platform allows students to learn from their mistakes by providing an in-depth explanation to incorrectly answered questions.
