Hi everyone, im about to start a diploma in computing and IT, one of the modules is around networking, I have no experience in this field and was wondering if I will be able to grasp it? I have a decent understanding of working Pc's doubt this will help me. Any feedback guys will be greatly appreciated.
Congratulations on getting ready to start a diploma towards computing and IT. Being a novice it's understandable that you don't have any experience in the field but that's what school is for, right? To answer your question networking is just like any other subject matter - you get out of it what you put into it. Some areas are easy to grasp while others are more complicated -- and this varies person to person. However, if you are willing to take the time and study then you should be able to grasp the fundamentals of networking and then build upon your knowledge base from there.
First, you've made a great choice by deciding to purse your degree in the arena of IT; this is a very dynamic field that will most certainly enhance your current skills while allowing you to gain a plethora of other useful skills. As far as grasping the concept, I think you'll be fine to be honest--always remember to ask questions! If you are willing to learn and you put forth the effort you will most certainly succeed!
I feel that Justin and Tish have more than adequately addressed your concerns when it comes to your grasping of the knowledge. As a former Computer Science major who turned to Networking, I noticed that networking at its core is a far cry from many other fields of IT.
In IT courses, you may become used to being in a very conceptual environment. One that deals with the hows and whats but not necessarily the whys, from an implementation standpoint. Networking can be very practical if you allow yourself to perceive it that way, and it helped me immensely to regard it as something more physical than logical. I find that this mindset alone can help you wrap your head around the topics of Networking.
I wish you the best in your studies. You've chosen a career path with an extreme breadth of options that will take you as far as you want to go.
