This course is a foundation course that explains and describes how computer networks are designed, installed, and administered. Introduction to communications concepts, networking, and internetworking. Review of major network components: protocols, topologies, hardware, and network operating systems. Hands-on experience by using class room networks and web-based simulation labs tools. Preparation for the CompTIA’s (Computing Technology Industry Association’s) Network+ certification exam. Students who have completed or are enrolled in CIS 66 may not receive credit. Strongly recommended: Computer Information Systems 50.
Obtaining the CompTIA Network+ Certification.
You may schedule, and take a test at on almost any day of the year by contacting Prometric www.2test.com or Vue at http://www.pearsonvue.com.
Ask the instructor about discount vouchers for the official Comptia exams.
Student Learning Outcome(SLO): Install, configure and maintain various home and business networks.

Free similar materials online at wireshark.org. Wireshark User's Guide.
Free Sample Captures.
Students interested in a packet analysis course ( CNT 7502 Wireshark) may request access to Netlab+ virtual machines.
This course has two goals: to provide students with an introduction
to the basic concepts of computer networks, and to prepare students
to pass CompTIA’s
Network + exam. Students wishing to gain general knowledge of the fundamentals
of networking will find a wealth of information in this area, while
students who wish to pursue the Network + certification
will find significant
support to achieve that goal. Achieving the Network + certification
is a good beginning for anyone aspiring to a career in the IT (Information
Technology) field. The course covers a broad range of networking-related
topics, including protocols, topologies, transmission media, and network
operating systems. Also covered are the elements of network design,
maintenance, security, and troubleshooting. The text should cause the
elements to come to life through the many real-world exercises provided
during the course of instruction. Most important, though, is the emphasis
on gaining basic skills to start the student who desires a career in
network administration on the road to success.

Final grades are determined through a weighted average of mid-term and final examinations, quizzes, laboratory assignments, homework assignments, and class attendance and participation.
90%+ = A; 80% to 89% = B; 70% to 79% = C; 60% to 69% = D; 59% & below = F.
Final grades will be posted on the school website; usually within two weeks of the end of semester. If you need to know your grade sooner, contact the instructor.
Additional optional practice quizzes can be found on BlackBoard http://clpccd.blackboard.com/
All assignments are to be turned in on the due date. Students may be allowed to make up any late work by prior arrangement with the instructor. I try to accommodate most students, but very few excuses are accepted.
Parking Permits Available Online
Parking permits must be purchased on CLASS-Web. You will need the license number and description of the vehicle you wish to purchase a permit for and a printer to print your temporary permit. The actual hanging permit will be mailed to the address you provide when applying for your permit. Vehicles not displaying a valid permit, (hanging-type semester permit, temporary permit or daily permit from parking lot machines,) will be cited, even you own a parking permit. If you left it at home, you may buy a daily permit or contact the security office in building 1725 and ask for a temporary permit.
Permit Costs for Semester Permits. Vehicles: $40 per semester. Motorcycles: $30 per semester. Vehicles visiting: 30 minutes; free in marked spaces only.

Adding/Dropping a course
LOOK UP THE W (WIDTHDRAW) DEADLINE IN THE LIST OF IMPORTANT DATES ABOVE.
You may use CLASS-Web on the Internet to drop or add a course from the school home page at https://bw4.clpccd.cc.ca.us/pls/OWA_PROD/twbkwbis.P_WWWLogin . CLASS-Web is an online system that allows students to register, add, and drop classes, review academic schedules, check grades, view unofficial transcripts, access financial aid information, and pay student fees.
Remember! If you enroll in a class and decide not to attend, you are responsible for dropping the class. Don’t assume you will be dropped by your instructor or that the system will drop you automatically. If you fail to withdraw by the deadline the instructor must issue a grade.
Attendance - California Education Code (Title 5) on Excessive Absences
Due to the voluminous variety of knowledge required of professionals in information technology the industry, it is expected for you to attend every class session for the entire class time. Make arrangements with the instructors about hybrid classes. The Las Positas attendance policy will be observed: A student absent for a total of four consecutive or six cumulative instructional hours (1 instructional hour = 50 minutes) and/or two consecutive weeks of instruction may be dropped from that course by the instructor.
In order to be counted present, you must be present for the entire class period. If you need to leave a class session early, please inform me before class begins. Arriving to class late or leaving class early may result in at least one instructional hour of absence depending on the time
In the event that you experience a personal or familial hardship that causes an absence, you are till responsible for the material covered. Our online material has lectures that can assist in learning the many topics, and I am willing to help during contact hours. It is your responsibility to officially drop the course if you choose not to complete it.
wish to drop the course at any time for any reason, fill out the appropriate paperwork at the Office of Admissions and Records. Students who do not report to class on the first day may be dropped. Do not assume that I will drop you from the course. If you stop attending the class and do not drop the class after census day, you will receive an F in the class. See the schedule
of important dates for deadlines for withdrawing from the course.
Back to top
Cell phones should be either turned off or set to silent mode during class. Take your emergency calls outside the class room. Please, put away your smartphones, Ipods, mp3 player during class times. You may bring a laptop computer to class for class work only; not for playing games, chatting, reading the news, checking sports results, or watching funny videos.
During lectures, you are expected to participate. If you are sleepy or distracted, do not come to class. Lenghty texting is not participating. If you wear earphones during lectures, you are not participating. Whispering to the student sitting next to you is very distracting to your classmates and to the instructor.
Official Student Responsibilities and Behaviors
Student Conduct and Due Process
The student is responsible for obtaining material distributed on class days when he/she was absent. This can be done by contacting a classmate who was present or by contacting the instructor.
All work that you submit in this course must be your own, it is a violation of academic integrity to copy someone else's work or to permit another person to copy your work. If any similarity in form or notation is noticed, the instructor retains the right to give a failing grade for the assignment, exam, and/or course.
Students found cheating (fraud, deceit, or dishonesty in an academic assignment) and/or plagiarizing (using another’s work as your own) will receive a zero for the assignment or exam and the incident will be reported to the dean of student services. LPC's policy on academic dishonesty can be found at http://www.laspositascollege.edu/facultystaff/honesty.php
Need for Assistance
If you have any condition, such as a physical or learning disability, which will make it difficult for you to carry out the work as I have outlined it, or which will require academic accommodations, please notify me as soon as possible for special arrangements.
