I loved this course. When I had issues support was awesome sauce. I really enjoyed the puns this instructor used to keep you from going off in a daze. I really wish I would have found Coursera sooner.

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.

A lot of information, a lot! But how it was presented and sectioned off made it digestible. I would have loved to see a lab actually configuring a DNS server.

Overall I really like this class because all lectures, assignments, and tests are straight forward. A couple things I dislike about the class are that there.

difficult, wordy, and informative. This is how a course on networking should be. More animation regarding how the network works would have been great also!

Alex is an excellent instructor. So many perspectives and techniques were covered in the course.
