cisco packet tracer in 7 reviews

You will see here how to understand patterns like TIA/EIA, you can see how to use cisco packet tracer minimum resources and how to understand in practice what we can at home and in small business using coaxial, fiber-optic and UTP & STP cabling.

it's my first attempted for online course and this is very useful course, and also Cisco Packet Tracer is interesting and awesome software to practice same like real life networking.

Loved Cisco Packet Tracer.Suggestions: If possible, please provide more reading materials.

It was a very well structured course with apt attention given towards the application of the knowledge of networking learnt through the simulation performed by the Cisco Packet Tracer.

it's a wrap knowledge about Networking, especially details from basic til Cisco Packet Tracer.

During the course Cisco Packet Tracer is introduced as tool which is suposed to help us understand how networks works which is really nice but the introduction is made in so bad way that if I wouldn't configure Cisco switch by myself some time ago I would have no idea what is going on.
