Hello experts, I'm a student of 3rd yr computer engineering. Actually I'm not good @ language so suggest me course details in network or system management. What kind of basics should I have that will help me in course + refer me some books online to built my base? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The Comptia Network+ certification is a good baseline for network knowledge. As others say here, nothing can replace experience. So practice networking on your own network or volunteer for some organization needing assistance with theirs.

    Depends on which route you want to take.  Do you want to work with servers? Or do you want to go the networking route?  Both are good fields and the server area is changing due to the cloud, and some tech classes, like Security+, is needed for both career fields, especially if you want to find work with a company that deals with the government.  Look over your options and then go either to Microsoft or Cisco and find the area that shows you the career path for your certifications to take.

    Good luck.
