A lot of information, but i feel like i fully understand core networking concepts. A lot of this info has helped me comprehend what will be required for me when I take my Network + certification exam.

what an amazing course, so much information and yet so easy to understand, would recommend going over a few of the videos and supplemental reading a few times, take the time needed, it'll be worth it.

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.

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.

This course was very informative and took a lot of hard work to complete. I would definitely recommend it for anyone new to computers who want to further their education in this field.

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

Good course but they don't explain some of the new concepts as thoroughly as they did in the first course of the specialization so some of the concepts may require more outside study.

Very technical, and the delivery was quite fun and filled with Jokes and puns that made it a lot more enjoyable. A very tough course but very well rounded and informative. Thank you!

Course is awesome, learned so many new details. Wish there was a way to do some lab/hands on training on commands and real life outputs. Similar to labs done in 1st module of course.

I think a lot of the concepts here need to broken down even more if we want to understand networking better. This only touched the surface, and I feel like I needed more information.

A little heavy on the OSI model. I first learned this stuff around 20 years ago and can honestly say that I've never specifically needed to know which layer something might be found!

A lot more detailed information about the internet and networking works. It was challenging and a lot of information. The training increased my respect and awe that it works so well.

This was a very difficult course, but a strong learning experience. There were a few tough assignments that I felt needed more information to support them. Overall still pretty good.

Good course with a lot of technical detail and helpful animations. I would have liked more hands-on practice. Overall, positive experience and I learned a lot of useful information.

Most of this information was accurate and well laid out, however, a fair chunk of time was spent outlining outdated and unused features that will rarely be delt with in actuality

Good course overall, Viktor is amazing, but I really didn't like graded assessments as sometimes they were really disconnected from the content and some questions were very vague.

Great course! Some of the graded work was tough, but good information. I didn't give it a 5/5 just because some of the graded material wouldn't load and/or a bit hard to control.

This course is amazing. you will learn basic to moderate knowledge of networking. but this course is full of theory. some more practical and real world videos may help beginners.

Great course and instructors!

You may have to fix some of the glitches people were encountering when taking the graded exams! Or maybe they were part of the challenge :)

Thank you!

It took me longer than expected to understand some of the materials.. more graphic examples were helpful in understanding some of the information provided.. I enjoyed this course

There are code issues in the answers versus the questions in IPV6 compression quiz. A few answers do not match what is taught in the course, This needs to be thoroughly examined.
