Customer Review

Dropped good money on these courses for my school. Most buggy, glitchy pile of dog water I have ever used. I actually skipped some of the labs and missed points only because I literally could not get them to even power on or run for longer than 5 minutes without bugging out. Furthermore, some of them blatantly waste your time and don't pass you because of not closing a window? or not checking the machine before you ran your labs? I know you nerds and IT losers all have nothing better to do than this shit, but if you are going to make someone pay for your program, at least have the balls and brains to have it running properly? Dog shit service.
