    This is the second course that I have taken on the subject of Computer Networking. Overall, I thought everything here was pretty straightforward, and the course topics were well-organized. I was able to move along the course fairly quickly and finish the specialization.

    I took this course to get the undergraduate credits. The quality of the material was excellent and the teacher answered my questions on a regular basis. I would take more classes like this one from the teacher.
