Mick was an excellent instructor. I have no prior Unix knowledge so very good intro course. I liked the hands-on exercises during the course.

As I had no prior Unix knowledge, some of the commands could have used a touch more definition, either verbally or in the manual, such a tee: and -t. I was not interested in the Windows section.
