In this course for the CompTIA A+ 1001-1002 exam you will learn about various types of Network Media, Network Cables, and Network Connectors. In addition, you will learn about Wireless Networks and what is used to connect them. After learning about types of Networks, you will be introduced to how machines communicate with each other using TCP/IP, which is the standard communication protocol suite used today. Then you will learn about different types of Networks: Workgroup, HomeGroup, and Domains. For domains we will cover how to add a user to the domain, as well as pre-staging a computer that is going to be added to the domain. Finally, you will learn about different tools that will be needed for helping with Networks during their career as an A+ technician.
