Have you ever been at one of those all day meetings where you quickly find yourself nodding off or poking at your phone? This WILL NOT be one of those. The class was kept engaged all week.
Well done! I was very impressed with the knowledge and passion for teaching. He made a very complex subject fun and informative.
The course materials here were the best I have seen. The homework items really help to put knowledge into practice.
I would give every aspect of the course a 10. I was amazed at the instructor’s knowledge of the material as well as his ability to teach the material. I felt ready for the exam immediately following the course. Great Class!!
The InfoSec books are spot-on. I appreciate the "need-to-know" material verse all the bloat that comes with trying to sell a book!
When we first started the class I was a little concerned with some of the methodologies but now feel certain I have what I need to pass the exam. I would not be prepared had I not taken this class.
I feel 100% more confident about taking the CISSP exam after taking the boot camp with you
I have been in this industry for over 10 years and I have never seen/heard anyone explain complex ideas and systems in such an easy to digest manner. If the same instructor teachers PMP, you all might see me soon.
Finally an instructor in the industry who can relate real world experience to the way that ISC2 wants you to learn it! Amazingly kept the class engaged on subject matter that puts most people to sleep. Knowledgeable, resourceful, and approachable if there was something you need more clarification on. I was very fortunate to have him as my CISSP instructor.
Prior to attending training the thought of attending class seemed to exacerbate my anxiety about the CISSP exam. However, the class and instructor, exponentially made things better. My expectations were far exceeded. Throughout my years, I've participated in many technical events and this was by far is the best instructor - hands down without question the best. I am much more confident about my approach to the upcoming exam and I credit you hard work and efforts. I believe that I have been provided with all of the right tools to be successful to complete my endeavor of earning my certification.
My instructor is truly a professional and knows the content of CISSP. He had a perfect balance of material and supporting experiences to support subject matter. After spending a week in his class, I am going to miss him!! :) I nominate him for a HUGE RAISE! He will bring back plenty of business for InfoSec!
I have nothing but great things to say for the class and instructor. Above and beyond.
I like how the InfoSec material eliminated the fluff and focused on relevant information for the text expected. The material is dry enough as it is and I don't need the additional snooze sessions with Shon's book. Excellent job with sample questions scenarios. The method of breaking down the question and systematically assessing each answer has changed how I look at those types of questions. In the Skillset online sample questions, the approach has already made a difference since I would have been wrong on my initial rush to judgments for answers.
Excellent class at getting the required information across. One of the best teachers I have ever had -- added to the short list of people I will never forget. Thank you.
First off I want to thank you for an enjoyable week.... Well at least as enjoyable as possible. I learned a ton! Understanding the answer is much more important than remembering the answer. Great job in explaining each concept.
I very much liked his superb knowledge of the overall field, and how he did not just simply read out loud from the book. He had personal experience and historical knowledge which he conveyed and provided context for the material. It felt like a university course.
I appreciate Mr. Barbara's approach to teaching this material. His enthusiasm and knowledge of the material brought about an improved comprehension of the domains.
Fantastic. The instructor is beyond knowledgeable. He knows the CISSP content inside out. In addition, he has a bit of a humorous way that makes the time pass amazingly quick, while still imparting the information. Certainly one of the best intructors I've ever had.
Course materials are excellent. The instructor knows the material and continually emphasizes what is most likely to be on the test. The morning and end of day reviews was excellent. This course and the instructor way exceeded my expectations.
I'm a visible learner and it helped to have the many diagrams to explain the theories and concepts. The instructor is always looking to ensure we understand the material. He is patient and always available to help explain things further. He adds some real world examples to also help explain.
