packet tracer in 8 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 makes you understand the basic concepts.Love doing the Packet tracer Activity.

Good materials and the Packet Tracer software, provides a good understanding of the concept Nice basic and small lectures on networking coherence The week three assignment failed to load and still reflects incomplete.

I learned many things The initial packet tracer activity introduced a lot of concepts that had not previously been explained.

The teachers were brilliant and I really loved the way we could do the packet tracer activities wtih them.

I really like the simulated "hands on" experience using Packet Tracer.

The one thing I would improve is the introduction to Packet Tracer (first 2-3 walkthrough videos).

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.
