Great course. It is great for beginners and for people that may have forgotten a thing or two. The way it was taught makes it so much better than reading man pages or something else as dry and boring.

Apply yourself to these terms and concepts and you will gain knowledge that is presented in a very understandable way. Watch and rewatch the course videos and I promise it will all start making sense!

Too fast and to get it better you will need to make a lot of notes and perform extra deep dives if you would like to understand it all.

Great overview of networking concepts and mechanics and gives just the right amount of detail to send you down the rabbit hole later.
