"This was my first course with Firebrand and I must say, its been an overwhelming experience.Hands down it is exhausting and taking two exams at the level of difficulty like Java 8 SE OCA/OCP within one week is not for the faint-hearted. However, you would hardly ever get any better chance to succeed in this task at that pace. This was among the most intense training experiences Ive ever had, with one of the best trainers Ive ever met, a real Java Expert being able to answer almost any question right off the bat and teach the unteachable within the limited amount of time. He got the penny to drop for me on several things I didnt understand within 4 months self-studying before, and he made it within 5 minutes!The whole training is extremely focussed on getting you to learn and understand everything thats needed to easily pass the exam, as long as youve been doing the basics beforehand. You have little to no distraction, ensuring youre totally committed to your objectives all the time.At the same time, you meet other experts being in the same boat with you, giving you the chance to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the topics youre struggling the most with.All in all, this was a week I will never forget, an instense experience second to none and definitely something I can recommend for anyone with real dedication and skills.Theres no better way to prove youre a pro.You wont regret it."
