As a complete networking newb this course was great for explaining how things work at this level.

For sombody who understands networking it might seem to watered down but from the viewpoint of sombody like me at times it seemed overwhelming. I did listen to every course twice. Once at work on my headphones. And once at home on my comp while taking notes.

I did pass this course and I feel my knoweldge of networking is of at least a novice level now I would not say im ready for an IT entry level job in networking. Since thats not my goal thats ok. But if that is your goal i suggest after you finish this course you continue your networking schooing at other places while finishing the three remaining courses.
