CompTIA IT Fundamentals+ (FC0-U61)

Taught By Multiple Professors
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep them coming! I agree that an otherwise 'dry' material was presented in a fun and engaging manner. I caught myself binge-ing tech lectures, no way! I have a moderate to extensive exposure to technology and still learned many things from the material. I do hope that the follow-on, more in-depth courses are made available from GC+ ! This is a brilliant partnership GC+.
