I loved this course. When I had issues support was awesome sauce. I really enjoyed the puns this instructor used to keep you from going off in a daze. I really wish I would have found Coursera sooner.

This was really time-consuming but it was really worth learning. Although in the end, it seems to be very basic things, they would be essential through whatever you want to accomplish in the IT field.

It was great! You guys could help me learn how to launch a rocket on the moon. I am convinced of it. That's how impressive your pedagogical skills are.

An excellent insight into networking, although i feel i need to physically practice it, otherwise skill fade will set in and away it will go. Thank you
