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.

the topic of subnetting, specifically for routing IP addresses should go more in-depth. The modules do not provide enough preparation for the assessment. Other than that it was quite insightful

Extremely dense material for a beginner, but definitely worth the time & effort! Although networking is not necessarily for me, it was crucial to have a basic understanding of how it all works.

This course was a bit more challenging for me and I definitely have to go back and review it to make sure I understand everything. I'm glad that I did it though because I did learn some things.

Would have preferred some more "hands-on" lessons, but in general I enjoyed this course. I learned a lot and will be furthering my knowledge and skills with outside materials over time. Thanks!

Besides the technical problems and lack of an actual teacher to assist with questions when I had errors, I developed a great understanding of the subject matter. Overall, I enjoy this course.

This was by-far the best course in the professional certificate program. The instructor sold the material, had a great personality and I felt like I picked up a lot of knowledge along the way.

I got so much to learn, I understood why things work the way the are n all. But it was all difficult, I wish they would've taught better by using non too much technical language and animations

The course is great.However, all important points are just being spoken. It could have been more efficient to just let us read through the course. Cuz i am mostly relying on the transcripts.

I really enjoyed the course. It was differently more difficult then into class. lol

I wish there were more training and labs on troubleshooting. It seemed to just brush over troubleshooting.

It was full of new info and tons of details about networking. maybe those information would be much easier to understand if they were put in a certain scenario but overall it was fanatastic

This course was a tough one but very rewarding in the understanding of network communications. Be sure to take enough time to understand the different components and how they work together!

This course is not for the faint of heart. It's hard, and highly recommends some additional reading to get through. That being said, it is an excellent section and I learned a lot from it.

The course was really helpful for those how have little knowledge on Computer networking. Specially liked the simulated Exercise works than the typical MCQs. Learnt a lot from this course.

A lot of information as expected. I wish there were more hands-on or how-to with some of the topics but overall a good introduction. I hope to obtain more skills in the following lessons.

Good course, my only critique is that not enough time is spent on the IPv4 routing and subnetting. That's a big component of the A+ exam I'll be taking after I finish the complete course.

this course was extremely difficult. I had a lot of times where things went over my head and it seemed a bit haze, but I stayed the course. I definitely learned a lot more in this course.

If you would have included some Access control list topics and some Stimulative examples for understanding that would have been great waoooo... Thank you for valuable time and info bro...

Hard course so far. A lot of new concepts and tools. A lot of conceptual material but really useful. Definetely need to review and do more research about this subject as I keep learning.

The course was fine until I got to the IPV6 Compression Quiz. It wouldn't let me pass even though I was getting the questions right. But once it was finally fixed, things were smoother.

over all I have a better understanding of what the IT support people I have talked to over the years. Once I have real world experience I will have a better grasp what I have learned.

Some of the terminology end methods used in this differ from other organizations like Comptia, but the course was good for providing an abstracted, baseline understanding of networking.

Very technical with a lot of detail that one has to pay attention to., especially the network part. Still, well worth it and learned a lot abut networking during this specific course.

Lack of visual Aids or Graphical Explanation

Explanation needs to be more Graphical or consist of more visual aids which smooths the transition of understanding in some critical topics
