This class was tough.
I am only in my second week of the class, but from what I have seen so far there are many things to learn. The information in this course is very applicable and useful for someone pursuing a career in IT, but there is a large amount of material to cover in a short time, so students may not be able to soak it all up in the time given for this class.
The best thing that I have learned so far is how to use threat modeling using the Microsoft threat modeling tool. I also like how this course requires students to apply their learning to a real organization.

Advice for students:
Make sure you set aside plenty of time to study. Ask for clarification on the assignment early on in the week because the descriptions can be ambiguous. Use a Google search to find examples to work from, then adapt those examples to fit your own unique model.
