  • You should be able to do basic mathematical operations.
  • You should have a very basic knowledge in using a computer.


Information Technology is a huge topic and I believe that Networking and Data Communications are a major branch of that topic. This course might serve as a stepping stone into a whole other world if you want to change the path your career is heading or if you are simply eager to learn something new. IP addressing is a tool that will make computer networks way easier to understand, because it can be explained with many real-life analogies and the knowledge can be applied elsewhere immediately.
