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.

Apply yourself to these terms and concepts and you will gain knowledge that is presented in a very understandable way. Watch and rewatch the course videos and I promise it will all start making sense!

This is good course.

Logical block exercises are very good for learning in my opinion. Courses need to use more of this kind of exercises.

This gave a really good intro to networking. It also dove more in-depth but not so much that someone new to the subject couldn't follow.

Too fast and to get it better you will need to make a lot of notes and perform extra deep dives if you would like to understand it all.
