The course is virtually all hands-on and is a great way to learn the basics of computer networking. It also serves as a good supplement to your CompTIA A+ or Network+ training.
You can purchase the entire course on Pearson’s website at this link. Enter the code PROWSE70 at checkout to receive a 70% discount.
