Course Description

Using plain English and full-color diagrams, this course will teach you the fundamentals of network engineering via the two most important skills all students need to learn first: understanding the IP environment and how to subnet an IP address quickly and accurately in 3 easy steps.

Understanding how to subnet is necessary for creating new LANs, reading routing tables, mapping networks, and troubleshooting. In this course you will learn how to subnet IPv4 and IPv6 addresses in 3 easy steps; along with how to reverse engineer an address; how to subnet an already subdivided address; and how to properly and correctly number and count host addresses in both environments.

The 3-step method will save you precious time on your exams. But just as important, is the context in which this course is taught. Each lesson fits together, growing your understanding gradually, with chapter quizzes to strengthen your knowledge and confidence.

I hope you will take this course and continue to grow in your IT career.

Thank you for reading this, and for watching my introduction video.
