Course Description
The CCNA Introduction to Networks course introduces the architecture, structure, functions,
components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. The principles and structure
of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to
provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of either course, students will be able to build
simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing
schemes.
UAA Student Code of Conduct

also plan to spend at least 18 hours outside of class each week to study and review the
course materials.
Take advantage of the regularly scheduled open lab sessions in UC 135, or as arranged with
the instructor at other times.
Form a study group that meets on a regular basis. Get this group together early in the
course, and meet often.
To do well on each chapter
o Review the objectives of each chapter.
o Take the quiz for the chapter first to see where your strengths and weaknesses may
be.
o Use the study guides prepared for your benefit in order to help guide your readings
and study of the materials
o Go through the lesson online. Make sure you examine all pictures and presentations.
If you encounter a word you have trouble defining, look it up in the online glossary,
and make a note of it.
o Take the chapter quiz again to test your knowledge.
o Complete your labs throughout the lesson, as you encounter them. They are placed
within the course materials to help reinforce the concepts being introduced.
o Review the objectives of the lesson to make sure you have gained knowledge in each
area.
o Take the online chapter quiz for the third time.
o Review your notes and vocabulary each day.
o Again, commit the time necessary to succeed.
