I enrolled into the Security+ course with Ed2go because of positive reviews from several colleagues surrounding courses they had pursued through Ed2go. I am ecstatic that I enrolled in this course because it provided a wealth of information. The course was self paced and had a great instructor. As a direct result of this course, I was able to enhance my IT Security knowledge immensely. I would highly recommend to anyone to take a course through Ed2go.- A.E., University of North Carolina, Greensboro
The CBT Nuggets were the most beneficial to me in learning and retaining the information. Hoping all my future courses integrate this style into their teaching method.- A.S., Excelsior College
