Course reviews

Nishant starts from the basics. My skill level was 0 out of 10 at the beginning, but now I rate myself 9 out of 10… and I’m certified PAWSP! Another great thing about this bootcamp is that you need nothing on your own computer – you don't have to worry about your VM and which version of Kali you have, and you don’t have to invest time and money to build your own lab to test your WiFi skills.
