Don't take this course. I really don't recommend this course to anyone who never learned computer network. Rafail Portnoy should explain materials in the course more and more.
The reason why I felt like this is because I also took Computer Hardware and Operating Systems by Daniel Katz-Braunschweig and his class was too GREAT! He teaches with a lot of easy examples and fully explains why, what, how.... and so on.
On the other hands, all the videos of Rafail Portnoy's class are shorter (videos are around 30 mins each) and of course less explanations, so I kinda had hard time to understand what's going on.
Anonymous is taking this course right now.

David Chen completed this course and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
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.
very good course. i helped me a lot. i think some of the examples could be explain in more better way and also some of the concepts could be made easy. the overall course was very good. i appreciate the effort of the teacher. thank you
Very good course structure.
It is suitable for both beginners and experienced persons.
I recommend to take this course not only for knowledge but also for career in near future.
The course is very helpful because it has a good explanation of networking from basic. It is self-paced and learns as per your preferable time.
The course is really good but I wish for a simpler example It explain all layers
you may get bored in the middle of the lecture but
don't worry it is normal
and highly recommended this course as one who doesn't know anything about
i have always wanted to know how computers communicate with each other and finally, I have the chance to learn this and more amazing stuff
I think it's great material but because I'm on a limited budget can't afford it and it doesn't allow me to keep score
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.
Good feature - containing Powerpoint side with simultaneous presentation.
