Pearson - Networking Essentials 3e (Course & lab)

Gain hands-on experience in CompTIA Network+ certification exam with Pearson Network-Essentials course and performance based labs. Performance based labs simulate real-world, hardware, software & command line interface environments and can be mapped to any text-book, course & training. The course and labs provide expertise and technical knowledge required to identify network limitations and weaknesses; establish basic network design and connectivity; understand and maintain network documentation; troubleshoot, configure, and manage common network wireless and wired devices; and implement network security, standards, and protocols. The CompTIA Network+ certification is designed for IT professionals, and IT network practitioners.

Here's what you will get

CompTIA Network+ certification is a globally recognized, foundational-level credential demanded by industries these days. In CompTIA Network+, the topics are mostly generic in that they can be applied to networking equipment regardless of vendor. The Network+ exam was designed to test the skills of network technicians with 18 to 24 months of experience in the field. It tests areas of networking technologies such as the definition of a protocol, the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and its layers, and the concepts of network design and implementation.
