Great deal on a Hacker course

The apparently regular cost of this course is $1499.00 but it's now available for $59.00. I've used Udemy for security courses and they're often good to excellent.

    Whaaaaat? Looking at their site, it looks good but unrealistic. This one course is supposed to prepare you for your CEH, CHFI, CISA, CISM & CISSP. In just 19 modules. No wonder it's $1500. lulz

    Vizual Coaching Academy. I'm just surprised they didn't spell it "Hackerz"

    "What if"... it's really a very elaborate site to phish hackers and other computer peoples... how epic would that be?

    Can sources using this site weigh in?

    I doubt it prepares you for all those exams. That's not why I posted it. For $59 bucks it's likely a good starter/introduction to the world. I'll spend the 59 bucks and report back in.

    Admittedly, I raised and eyebrow from the initial price tag. It is the Hacker News & those guys are legit security dudes

    Who is the instructor? What is his or her name? If the name looks foreign and non-English, is the speech quality in the video clear and easy to understand? I suspect the answers to those questions might be deliberately obfuscated with this course.

    I have no qualms in learning from a video taught by a non-native English speaker, as long as the English is clearly spoken. There are a bunch of courses online that appear polished and professional on the signup page, but then you end up getting a mumbly Indian accent for the actual content.

    $59 for what is probably better explained in random youtube videos and Cybrary, also free. It's not that $59 for training is a lot, but that if no one has ever heard of it and they make up a random value in the thousands so they can claim a huge discount that it becomes very suspect.

    If I told you that my 10 year old car is worth $50K but I'll give it to you at a giant discount for only $10K, would you run to buy it or question it?

    Udemy is great. However some of the instructors are not.
    Gotta read those reviews.
