I worked in the police in the UK for 12 years as a patrol officer and detective. While I was in the job I helped teach the new e-mail system to other officers. I took a few IT exams and then left for a career in IT in June 2000.
I took a few more exams with vendors such as Cisco and Microsoft and got a job working for Cisco for two years. I then started an IT training company teaching Cisco and computer networking courses. I built the business until it had several offices in the UK and then sold it.
I now run a publishing business and several websites teaching IT related subjects. I've learned how to build a successful company and how to make it in the world of IT. I hope what I've learned helps you too.

Most IT Engineers Can’t Subnet…here’s why…
Understanding IP Subnetting is a vital skill for every IT engineer and yet most don’t know how to do it or go about it completely the wrong way. Once you understand a few simple techniques of this subnetting tutorial, you can actually easily subnet any IP address in your head.
Does this sound familiar?
This is where Subnetting Secrets comes in.

If you can count to eight in your head then you can use my method explained in this subnetting tutorial to:
The techniques taught in this subnetting tutorial have been tried and tested by myself to learn to subnet, pass my MCSE, A+, Network+, CCNA, CCNP and many other non-IT exams as well as easily pass interviews for Cisco and BT. They have been used by many other students to effectively study for and pass their exams also. I know they will help you too.

I believe I can continue practicing and I feel more confident in subnetting now. I would certainly recommend to the student to write out the grid you refer over and over first so you have it memorized.
I have been studying for my CCNA for quite some time now. I was able to do subnetting before this course but I really was struggling to do it efficently. And on a timed test this could be the difference of passing and failing. I figured for 27 bucks why not. I was very impressed with how simple it was once it was explained properly. And for once in my early career i finally feel comfortable with subnetting. Thanks again!!!
This is a very a excellent, short and precise course on understanding the secrets of subnetting for the real life as well as exams such as CCNA and Network +. Paul does a very good job of explaining the secrets to subnetting in the videos and in his book.
This course is given in a simply way so it's very easy to understand. The first section enabled me to grasp the mechanic of the method. And the amount of exercises gives the opportunity to try by ourselves. Not 5 stars because lecture 16 is labeled /26 Bit Mask while it's /27. But this truly does not have any impact if the method is known. Thanks again.
Paul takes what has been confusing to many and he makes it very easy to learn. Thank you Mr. Browning!
