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.

This was a very fun course! I really enjoyed the style and pace of the information given. A lot of technical information was given while the course made it easy to take in and comprehend the material!

Only reason I am marking it down a star is due to multiple graded assessments being in a different language. Other that that, it was a very thorough and informational course.

This course allows us to know about the communication between computers through networks.

Skeptically described and quite easy to understand someone who is new to this course.

Some stuff could be explained better and slower, also more examples would help a lot of us trying to understand everything that's taught in this course. So much abstraction.

It is a lot of material to learn in such a short period of time and needs some more explaining and examples about everything, nevertheless is a great meterial to learn from.

Wonderful course, I came into it knowing nothing about Networking and now I am sure that I can resolved at least 80% of all networking issues. Not bad Google not bad at all.

I liked the course, I learned quite a bit, but there are a few things that could be more in depth with video lessons and visuals . Compression of IPV6, and network layers.

4 stars because some knowledge really didn't feel practical, like having to answer on a test how many bits something is, while you could easily just look that up if needed.

There was a lot of good material to get through in all 6 weeks of this course. I feel I learned and refreshed quite a bit of knowledge needed for a foundation to build on.

I learned a ton of new information in this course related to networking. From subnetting to IP addresses, it was a fun and stimulating challenge preparing for a new role.

I liked everything in this course it was super informative. I wished though, more time was spent of the IPv6 compress whether in the video or in a supplemental reading.

I feel the information covered and instructors were tremendous, but more real life examples and problem solving applications would help internalize the information better

The instructor seems super nice. The structure and knowledge covered is well-designed and very helpful. However, some of the assignments are quite tedious and confusing.

Challenging, but thorough. There were more than a few times I wish I had a live instructor to ask a simple question.10/10 would recommend for the self motivated learner.

For all courses in the IT Support Professional Certificate, the Text accompanying the lecture videos need to be edited (cleaned up) to comport with the lecture videos.

This course is more theoretical than the previous one. I think it would be a good idea to have a summary at the end of each module. Looking forward to the next courses!

Exam has some tech issues, especially for the final, as some questions will not load at all, and there is no way to refresh the page to reload the content. Please fix.

It goes through a comprehensive range of topics regarding TCP/IP its 5 layered architecture, including the services offered by Internet. Pretty intensive and detailed.

Amazing stuff. The IPv6 compression issue was never fully resolved. I felt I had to give the wrong answers in able to pass due to how you abbreviate multiple zeros.

This course was full of so many different layers and protocols and just networking. It amazes me to now know I know a little about how some of these technologies work.

Was great with my only complaint being that sometimes the material moved a little too fast for me to fully decipher. But, this was fine as I could go back an relisten

Enough to get your feet wet but not as intensive as the A+ cert which requires more topic coverage. I love that there is a dual certification for both and a discount!

Overall the course was great! I do feel that there are some areas which need further explanation and direction. Also, some of the activities need improved directions.

The course was a great course with lots of information. The only thing that I might request is to remind of the abbreviations used like CRC and things of that nature.
