Acknowledging Mumshad Mannambeth, thank you for what you and your team at KodeKloud is doing, Kubernetes is not new to me but to find a course which is streamlined and laser focused on the exam objectives is difficult, you can know so much and yet sink in the exam because of it's unique format and time management that you must learn to do for those 2 hours, your modules definitely help with understanding the exam format through labs and mock exams.

Thank you so much Mumshad Mannambeth for the awesome course, I couldn't find better than yours. These courses are well designed with awesome practice labs and have more than the required content to learn and pass the Kubernetes exams. Not sure how you are managing them with these much of low cost.
