computer networking is a set of computers connected together for the purpose of sharing resources. The most common resource shared today is connection to the Internet. Other shared resources can include a printer or a file server.


Computer networking is very easy to learn, but you have to follow some path in order to learn about networking.  Learn computer networking skills to become a Systems Admin and Network Admin.

First off, I can tell you what not to do. Do not try to memorize Cisco certification exam brain dumps.

Do not approach networking with the intention of mastering by memorizing. If you are a beginner you have an advantage in that you can start from a blank slate.

I would break down the learning approach into the following steps:

  1. Identify resources: Figure out how much you want to spend (if anything at all) to learn networking. Then look for resources that fit within your budget. Things to include in your search: Online resources, books, courses. I would recommend identifying one primary resource (whether it is a book, course, series of videos or anything else) and multiple secondary / tertiary resources.
  2. Start going through the material in your chosen primary resource. Focus on understanding the mechanics behind the things that you’re learning – try and figure out why network protocols have been designed to work in the way that they do.
  3. Cross-reference topics against your secondary resources. This is especially useful when you come across topics that you do not fully understand using your primary resource. Use your secondary resources to see whether a different explanation helps you grasp the material better. Cross-referencing is also useful in correcting any mis-conceptions that you might have acquired in your first reading through.
  4. Perform hands-on configuration on network devices. This is absolutely invaluable in mastering networking. Networking concepts can often appear to be abstract, building different scenarios help solidify the abstract concepts into more tangible ideas.
  5. Test your understanding. The only way you can be confident that you are on the right track is by testing what you know. The best way to do this is to build out different scenarios in a lab.
