    Hi all, been reading posts for a while, I've finally registered as I've just started to study the Network+ course, which may I add, is proving to be a bit on the tricky side!

    Hi NB! I've just started the Network+ course and I seem to be having 'headwork' with the OSI model! Whilst I know what all the layers are, I just cant get it into my head what they all do! I hope to take the exams (I'm doing A+ as well) by April so I'm starting to panic a bit now. Maybe I should just move on to the next topic and not worry about how the OSI works in detail at the moment??? Just feel a bit 'lost' with it all!

    Hi Mark

    If you've hit a topic that you keep 'merry-go-rounding' (with a little less merry) on, then I would skip it and return to it later.

    Alternatively, do a search on here for 'OSI' - there's a couple of threads summing the topic up, and hearing it from a different slant may help things to stick a little more?

    Oh - and welcome to CF :biggrin

    I'd agree with Arroryn, hopefully after you've gone over the rest of the material, the OSI model will become easier to understand. I must admit it took me a while to fully understand it all, reading explainations from many different sources helped a great deal.

    Google is your friend. :)

    Welcome to CF also.. :biggrin
