GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is designed to continue the program begun in NET 101 and NET 102 in preparation for the CCNA examination. Those two courses are prerequisites for NET 103. The student should also be very familiar with Windows 9x computers and be comfortable using computers before registering for this course. This is a fast paced, course for the motivated student.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: To help prepare the student for the CCNA certification and to cover important advanced LAN topics such as virtual LANS and access control lists.

COURSE OUTLINE:

  1. Review of the OSI model and routing basics
  2. LAN Switching
  3. Virtual LANS
  4. LAN Design
  5. Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP)
  6. Access Control Lists
  7. Novel IPX Protocol
  8. Network Management

STUDENT ASSESSMENT:

On Line Examinations: 25%
Labs / Practicals:: 25%
Attendance/Participation: 25%
Online Written Final Exam: 25%

ATTENDANCE: Attendance is expected at all class sessions. The material presented will be varied, and some material may be covered only a single time. In the case of unavoidable absence, arrangements to make up missed assignments may be made at the discretion of the instructor.

Due to college rules, attendance must be taken and submitted to the administration.

ASSIGNMENTS: All assignments should be submitted either before the class, during break (if there is one) or at the end of the class in which they are due, so as not to disrupt the class session. Any assignment may be submitted early. Late assignments will loose 10% per class session.

Every student is expected to submit all required work. Makeups for absences may be allowed (at the discretion of the instructor) and, if allowed, will generally be somewhat more rigorous than the original assignment. Makeups must be submitted as early as possible as the amount of lateness will proportionately deduct from the grade received.

This is a fast paced structured course. All on line examinations must be completed during the suggested time frame. Typically, there will be 1 or 2 new exams given each week and an exam will not be reactivated after two weeks. It is imperative that each student remain on track.
