This course prepares students to work in a network environment along with preparing students to write the Network+ Certification exam offered through CompTIA. It offers students the opportunity to prepare for the exam while gaining knowledge in networking technologies and key TCP/IP and networking concepts. It also provides a comprehensive look at many vendor neutral networking technologies with a focus on topologies, protocols, network implementation, wireless networks, the OSI Model and critical network support concepts. This course is intended to help prepare students for the CompTIA Network+ Certification exam (N10-006). The certification exam is not part of this course. Students wishing to write the certification exam must make their own arrangements (including paying the required fee).
Prerequisite: Students should be quite familiar with the Windows operating system and have a very basic understanding of networking concepts.
