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.

Great overview of the technical aspects of networking that, once again, started from the very "I know nothing basics" and moved to more advanced topics at a rate that this beginner could keep up with.

It was a lot to learn. Struggled a bit but being able to go back and refresh was great. It's what helps me to have that access to re-read or re-watch videos.

Some of the material was difficult to grasp but overall simple and well layed out. Networking concepts are by nature fun and enjoyable when taught in this way.

Great course! Lots of theory , I think adding more practical and visual activities to the course would allow for some the concept to come across more clearly.

That's a lot of information in a small package. Very clearly presented. Challenging quizzes but the hardest was the assignment to put it all in my own words.

Good course. Especially if you have a basic understanding of internet. The only issue I would have for this part it only touches a little on a lot of topics.

Esta buenísimo el curso, los fundamentos están perfectamente explicados y entendibles, pero aún esta un poco desactualizado, si cambian eso será excelente.

Excellent material. The only reason I did not give the course 5 stars was how difficult QwikLabs is to navigate and use. Otherwise, the course is 5 stars.

I hope the final certificate has more hands on assignments. I learned a lot of concept and the organization of IT but I need to do, to learn and remember.

Great all around course, very informative. Had issue with a few of the module labs and the graded written assignment, but seek help from the forums for it.

Some lesson plans didnt seem a fleshed out as others, and certain topics were brought up but then never touched on later or just didnt show up on the test.

This course is decidedly more in-depth and geeky than IT Fundamental course 1. The presentation and layout are the same as course one, and well organized.

I found the course challenging, but if I thought about it and paused for a second; I could search through the videos for what I needed to know and Eureka!

It is a bit difficult to get through, but if you take good notes and review regularly it is a great educational step in getting familiar with IT concepts.

It's a very exciting course, and the instructors are hard-working people to deliver the courses smoothly, I forward my great appreciation for all of them.

Good course with a lot of theory and lack of practice. "Networking" is a subject broad enough to implement a specialization or a professional certificate.

I learned a lot from this module. I would have given it 5 stars except the transcription was missing for the last week. Other than that, I enjoyed myself.

The course content is sufficiently in-depth. The instructor is fun and exudes the right energy for learning. The concepts are presented with much clarity.

A little hard to follow sometimes. A lot thrown at you at once. You may have to watch the videos more then once. But once you get it, you'll be satisfied.

In concerns with subnetting in particular I feel there should have been a dedicated course to this particular topic , otherwise this course was amazing.!

some of the topics like the routing table could have used a deeper explanation like there are three rules to IPV6 compression and more examples as well.
