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.

An excellent insight into networking, although i feel i need to physically practice it, otherwise skill fade will set in and away it will go. Thank you

Learned a bit more on IPv6 after taking this course. Most was practical knowledge gained over the years but I did manage to pick up a few new tidbits.
