Here are some of the users who appreciated the course with below comments

Ajaz Ahmed - One of the finest course on Udemy for learning Cisco Nexus Devices, the Instructor ( Ashish ) used his best way to explain everything about Nexus which you can find in Production Networks. I was just a beginner when I started this, but after completing this course, I got a very good grip / Knowledge on Nexus Family. The instructor is always ready to clear your doubts. I insist ,if anyone wants to learn about Cisco Nexus, then this course is FOR YOU!!Thanks Ashish for the course, the way you explain it just OUTSTANDING.

Justin Swanson - Exceptional course put on by Ashish. I just started having to configure some Nexus switches at work; mainly 3500 series but the concepts, etc. are the same. I gave 4 stars at first as some of the drawings/handwriting using MS paint are a bit messy, but after continuing through the course, the content far outweighs this. I especially like in the vPC portion that he doesn't just go over a configuration once and the subsequent expects you remember it all already; he really drills into your head all the necessary steps. I would whole heartedly recommend for anyone interested in learning NX-OS and its features.

Cyrus Ramirez  - Excellent detail.. Real world information. I've used these videos to help me with my day to day work in my nexus environment. Thank you

Sandeep Prajapati - It's a Good Overview course of nexus 5K, 7K learning. Trainer is skilled pretty good & enough.

I wish this could have been in more details. But over all it's a nice one for grabbing a fair understanding to pick up the other advanced learning materials comfortably.

Ron Ferriolo - I thought the course was very good. It was much more than just an overview of Nexus. It contained theory, detailed configuration, and numerous show command outputs from beginning-to-end including many real world scenarios such as installing, updating, and backing up license files. There was a lot of emphasis on vPC & FabricPath configuration and troubleshooting which will be the focus of any interview. There were also several "show" commands that I never encountered in my CCIE Data Center studies. I would recommend this course to anyone, whether they have studied Nexus previously or not. If you have access to Nexus physical or virtual devices, the course will be even that much more valuable. Hopefully there will be more to follow.

Tim Pastick - Love it have been working on Nexus switches for 6 months now in a production environment and never had one show me so much useful information behind the scenes. Normally just adding port-profiles etc.

Darby Weaver -  Excellent Review Course. Clear Essentials. Much needed. Thanks Darby Weaver The Cisco Network Architect

Devinder Sharma - Excellent course at great price. The OS version used is bit old based on what is best available to him ,and instructor can add a slide lecture, without actual configuration tutorial, highlighting the new features in versions 7 and 8 as well as mention newer platforms like 7700 and 9000 and new line cards. Overall great product.
