Types of Networks

http://compnetworking.about.com/od/basicnetworkingconcepts/a/network_types.htm This website was helpful because it lists the different types of networks and gives a quick description as to what they stand for. It then goes on to describe each one in greater detail. Zachary Brogna Date Added: 11/28/15

http://www.igcseict.info/theory/4/types/index.html This website was helpful because it had diagrams beside the descriptions. I then found the website to be even more helpful as the next page in the tutorial is the network topography's. Christopher Phethean 5/3/16

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXMIxCYZu8o May 29, 2014. November 28, 2015 This link allows you to get the full explained version that the chapter is not able to do. The video give a detail analysis of how networking allows computer to connect form across the world. Although i believe it is more detail than most people would need it definitely covers everything you would need to know about networking. Zachary Nader

http://www.igcseict.info/theory/4/types/ Date Added 11/28/15. This website goes into detail about the different types of networks there are. The networks that this site covers are LAN, WLAN, WAN, and PAN; each explanation also shows a diagram of how they work. If you continue with this websites tutorial, it later goes on to explain the LAN topologies, networking hardware, and the internet. ~Caitlyn Lambert-Hutchinson
