Learn Basic Subnetting
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.
It’s very simple and easy to understand , by the end i get to the information directly without any complicated
Most of it starts of a little bit basic, yet the course later on becomes more interesting as the subject continues.
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.
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
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.
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.
this course really helped me figure out which career path i should go for ofcourse " networking ". Thumps up for the instructor you are the best
Covers the basics well, thus far (I'm still in Section 1, chapter 5.). All content presented in a straightforward manner.
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 :)
At times the videos flashing by in the slide while you are talking are distracting. The course was well prepared and beneficial.
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.
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.
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!
Yes, great very informative. Excellent video's and audio quality! Looking forward to higher learning with same instructor. Excellent presentation. Thank you very much. Currently preparing for CompTia A+ exam. Now, have a much better understanding of functions and features of a router. More importantly, choosing the best one for my needs.
