Scott21 July 2020

Absolutely -- I was seeking a primer course that conveyed general concepts I could immediately apply to managing my home network. Course thus far has exceeded that expectation. I especially appreciate the incorporation of photos and video of network equipment into the presentation. It should assist me in making my own future purchase decisions.

Mohamed24 May 2020

It’s very simple and easy to understand , by the end i get to the information directly without any complicated

Natadthep16 May 2020

Most of it starts of a little bit basic, yet the course later on becomes more interesting as the subject continues.

Andrew2 April 2020

This is a very comprehensive course that introduces a lot of networking topics without getting bogged with a lot of network theory. There's a little bit of theory to explain network addressing and subnets, then the rest of the course covers different networking technologies and how they are used. The tutor knows the subject and explains things clearly. I learnt a lot and found the information interesting.

Don21 December 2019

The first half of the course was excellent and was what I signed up for. Not sure the purpose of the legacy videos were. While interesting not sure I see how they relate the the purpose of the course as outlined

Jose2 December 2019

So far so good . He is keeping it simple but that's a good thing , i already know some of this things so far but am glad he is starting from the ground up .hoping he goes this way on the next videos.

Josh5 November 2019

I'm not exactly a beginner with networks, but this seems very informative and easy for people that may be. I'm looking forward to the rest of the course.

Ayume25 September 2019

Matthew30 August 2019

Covers the basics well, thus far (I'm still in Section 1, chapter 5.). All content presented in a straightforward manner.

Kristaps6 February 2019

Thank you for really enjoyable course. Greatly made although I think quizzes could be a little bit more complicated and with more questions but other than that great :)

Tim24 November 2018

At times the videos flashing by in the slide while you are talking are distracting. The course was well prepared and beneficial.

Michael13 November 2018

It looks like it is too basic. I am familiar with what is covered so far. We got into areas that I did not understand. This was beneficial.

Terrin6 November 2018

Simple, practical, and easy to grasp. This is a good start as a complete novice, or a good refresher for those who might have been around in the IT world for some time.

Aga22 October 2018

Realy nice and easy to understand course. Very good for beginners. I learnt a lot of useful things. It was a perfect match for me. I like it!
