The feedback that we have received from hundreds of students and professionals is that, it is difficult to understand complex concepts just by plain reading the document or going through the ppt. Learning through video is more convenient as you get lots of information neatly arranged and explained in a better manner. Most importantly, you do not need to flip through hundreds of pages while preparing for an interview.


If I find that something is not there, Can I request for a lesson additionally?
