Requirements
  • You should already be familiar with the decimal numbering system. This is the system that most of us learn as children and includes the numbers 1-10 and is also the system we use in our everyday lives.
Description

In this course you will learn how to convert numbers between different numbering systems in preparation for a certification exam or your networking or software development career.

Learn how to convert numbers in your sleep (or at least no longer have nightmares about numbers).

  • Understand the decimal, binary, and hexadecimal numbering systems
  • Learn how to convert binary numbers to decimal and hexadecimal numbers.
  • Learn how to convert decimal numbers to binary and hexadecimal numbers.
  • Learn how to convert hexadecimal numbers to decimal and binary numbers.

Take the fear away from subnetting and feel comfortable under exam pressure!

Let's admit it. Thinking about different numbering systems can be intimidating. Most of us have worked with the numbers 1-10 (0-9 actually) all of our lives and it's difficult to think using different numbers. I've taught networking students to subnet since 2003 and the problem for most students is that they aren't that good at math. But binary and hexadecimal numbering doesn't even use math we're used to so it can be even more confusing.

Over ten years ago I developed lectures on number conversion for a college that were so powerful I was asked to write a textbook on network subnetting by a major textbook publisher. The challenge was that the lectures were so powerful that I was also offered a promotion and had to move. That meant that I couldn't finish the textbook, but it gives you the ability to experience the content here. 

This course contains the original textbook material in article form along with explanatory video lectures, quizzes, and case problems so you get the best of both worlds. You'll get all of the information you need in the video lectures, but you can also read the textbook content, take the quizzes, and complete the case problems to increase your learning.

I designed this course to be easy and accessible to beginners yet also good if you've learned the different numbering systems before and just need a refresher. 

At the end of this course you'll know all of the basics of understanding and converting between different numbering systems and be ready for your developer or networking career or certification exams.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for anyone that wants to learn how to understand and convert decimal, binary, and hexadecimal numbers.

My name is Ric and I'm an Information Technology Geek. It all started when I got my first computer, an Atari 600XL when I was about 12 years old (it was new back then). I've since went on to become the Director of Technology for an international oil and gas company and then a college instructor and dean.  

I enjoy teaching and my students are a priority. I've taught and developed college courses since 2003 in subjects including Linux, UNIX, Windows, MS Office, Game Development, Web Server Administration, Network Security, Internetworking, Cisco Routing, Cisco Advanced Routing, Cisco Switching, Career Development, and even Mathematics. I've also been a peer reviewer for IT textbooks published by both Cengage Learning and McGraw-Hill. 

I currently hold or have held the following certifications: Certified Scrum Master, Titanium Certified Application Developer, i-Net+, A+, Network+, Security+, Certified Novell Administrator, Certified Novell Engineer, Master Certified Novell Engineer, Cisco Certified Network Associate, and Microsoft Certified Professional. Okay, so those Novell ones don't mean so much now, but they were a lot of work so I'm including them :)
