"I have trained with Firebrand before, the "boot camp" ethos suits my situation and I have never failed to take value back to my everyday work. The ISTQB course is very in-depth and pre-reading is essential, I would suggest trying to ensure the books are delivered at least a couple of weeks before the course. The instruction, as always, was exceptional and littered with real-life scenarios, which helped to put the content into perspective. "
