This course really helped me to know how to build my own network rack at home, Course is focused on practice topics, that was exactly what I expected, great explanation, advice, tips, fully recommended. Thanks Marious Happy student
Very well done. An idea that is out of the box thinking and very handy to have it at home. From my point of view I'll add also an access server to this. But maybe that is more necessary for a home full size LAB rather than this particular type of setup.?
I liked the course. Its good to see someone who knows his stuff explain it to you like you were over at his house, without the jargon.
Marious makes a convincing case for building a home lab as opposed to relying entirely on software, and has produced a nice step-by-step course which anyone can follow.
I really appreciate the Instructor's time, effort an energy in making such a course. He has a really nice setup. Good job Marious. However, the course is lacking in its contents. First, the complete step by step video should have been included on how to setup the lab, and it should not be left for the student to say that they want it. Second, if there is a part 1 of anything then a part 2 should be included to make the course complete - for example the NAS part was incomplete. All in all, it was a good course that one can learn from. I support Instructor Marious Kuriata because he cares about his students.
Good information on real world application. Info that is needed that you dont realize until you hear explanation and application.
Marious published many high quality networking courses on Udemy. In the past, many audiences always asked "How to build a Real Lab at home for CCNA ?" on his forums. Now, he shows you how to plan & build a modern real lab at home in this course. Furthermore, it is good for a beginner to gain hands-on experience in networking!
I wish that the instructor should do more courses on network easy to understand. I like when he start to talk about the network topology and what comes first into a computer Rack.
First of all this is a break with traditional IT courses, where the aim is to teach and get you through an exam. This is designing a system for the real world, making it acceptable for your wife /girlfriend. it's a working system and to learn with. Totally enjoyed this course wish it was longer, and yes part 2 on the setting up of the individual components is a must. Well done Marious
