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.

It's a course that is difficult but if you want to learn all about the network and how it works and you study it would be easy and fascinating.

Really good course. Technical and short. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but you have to try it. I am walking away with more knowledge.

The course opened my eyes to a lot of IP addressing that I never knew about and it was delivered perfectly by the video. I gain a lot from it.

Simple to understand and very easy to follow. Week 1 seems very easy, but does get progressively more difficult. Highly recommend this course.

Amazing instructor. Very useful course, although I was familiar with 60% of topics. But I never had any idea about how all they work together.

Networking is my steeze. Although subnetworking could use an easier explanation, I thought most of the course was informative and interesting.
