Students Reviews

Check out the student reviews for “Learn Ethical Hacking From Scratch” course.

  • Dindayal R C (5.0/5) “Thanks so much for your very valuable training sir. I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot from it and appreciated that you made it easier to learn. Zaid sir is an excellent teacher for teaching ethical hacking.”
  • Karthik R. (5.0/5) “The best part of the course was the organized content in which Zaid talks about the various methods to find vulnerabilities and the last lecture of the respective section talks about preventing such vulnerabilities. Also, the way of teaching was very good to explain concepts in an intuitive way. Hacking is a subject on which we can get a good grip only after intense practicing or experimenting.”
  • Steve W. (5.0/5) “Great course. Had a lot of fun going through the practical side and Zaid makes it really easy to follow. I really liked the broad scope of topics too.”
  • Zach P. (5.0/5) “Fantastic Course! Zaid is awesome! Obviously, some things are dated and not everything works exactly as you would hope right away but that’s the point. This field is constantly adapting and evolving. This class gives you all the info you need and shows and forces you how to adapt to this evolution. Looking forward to part two Intermediate to Advance Network hacking!”
  • Sajid S. (5.0/5) “Yes, I have enjoyed my experience with this course. However, most of the hacking tools I have learned to use so far either don’t work as expected or fail to work at all. Regardless of that, I am still eager to learn and hope that what lies ahead will work out for me!”
  • Michael C (4.0/5) “This was an amazing course. There are just a few things that need to be updated for it to have a perfect record. Autoit doesn’t exist anymore so that portion of the course can’t fully be completed. The Veil framework also doesn’t work anymore. Outside of that, this was a brilliant course still worth getting to get a general overview of everything”
  • Jordan B. (4.0/5) “Really enjoying the course, but just a few things that don’t quite work due to updates. For example, the Veil backdoor that is generated doesn’t work on a current Windows 10 operating system with no antivirus installed. I am now going to experiment and try to generate a backdoor that can’t be connected. Overall, however, the course is very well presented, easy to follow and provides a great introduction to hacking.”
  • Dohyeon K. (4.0/5) “Overall, the contents were awesome but some were really hard to understand and couldn’t resolve the problem. However, I highly recommend this course to those who want to learn about the basics of ethical hacking!!”
  • Laso M. (4.0/5) “The course is above my expectations. It is well structured. Videos are short enough to keep engaged alongside the tutorials. Presentations are clear, simple and easy to follow. And as for me, I am delighted with the instructor’s experience and knowledge in his field. Overall, it’s a great course for beginners! I highly recommend to go for it.”
  • Elijah S (3.0/5) “The course is good. Zaid is a very good and competent instructor who took his time to develop and structure this course. His teaching is amazing as well, however, some of the content in this course requires a lot of maneuvering on the victim’s side, which is almost impossible. It’s almost as if for the victim to fall for some of these schemes, they must be on your side and playing so that they can be hacked. They are just unrealistic. For these reasons, I’m viewing some of these videos for the sake of completion because it wouldn’t make a difference if I learned them. No one would fall for them.”
