Keith Barker walks you through CompTIA Network+ and all the exam objectives for the N10-006 exam. This course offers the perfect way to kick off your network career or improve on the networking skills you already have. It's also a terrific introduction to computer networking for business professionals of any stripe.

This exciting CompTIA Network+ course begins by providing you a solid foundation of how computer networks operate, and builds upon that knowledge with real-world examples of network technologies and protocols including the OSI model, TCP/IP, DNS, ARP, IP addressing (including subnetting), and media types and connectors, including fiber optics, copper, and wireless.

Keith uses real-world experience and analogies to explain complex CompTIA Network+ topics in simple, easy-to-digest, bite-sized chunks, and makes it fun. In addition to live demonstrations, Keith includes protocol analyses (using a protocol analyzer to show the details of what is really happening on the network) to reinforce the concepts and ideas learned in the videos. This new Network+ video course covers each topic in the latest exam objectives for the N10-006 exam.

This course includes recommendations to view Nuggets from other CBT Nuggets courses. While the course duration is listed as 17 hours, you should expect to spend approximately 21 hours training.

Welcome to Network+ N10-006


Welcome my friend to CompTIA's Network Plus N10-006. Let's get started. I wanted to take a few moments in this introduction to chat with you, to tell you about how excited I am about joining you in this journey to the world of Network Plus. Now, I realize that not everybody comes from the same background.


We have different levels of experiences and different expertise. And regardless of the reason that you want to master this content-- maybe it's a job promotion, or you want to fill in some of the gaps. Regardless of the reason, I am super excited about logically taking you step-by-step through the entire process.


And all it's going to take is like 10 to 15 minutes a day. And I guarantee you we're going to have fun in every single Nugget. So I'm keeping this intro really, really short. And we can start the training with the very next Nugget. I hope this has been informative for you, and I'd like to thank you for viewing.
