This course was amazing and helped me understand so much more about networking, things I never thought I would know or understand. Very fulfilling and I can't wait to use this knowledge going forward.

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.

Really good course, great videos and clear info! Still the peer reviewed assignments are a disaster. They should be optional.

I pretty much taught myself how to route and subnet. Otherwise, there were some decently explained lessons in this course.
