Not only the purpose for the application of the exam of NC2 but ultimately for your works and setting computer networks in your house or a In- house Internet Cafe.  Talking with the exam of NC2 this is perfect to perform because this is one of the critical aspects during the actual and oral interview. All you need is to memorize and familiarize the procedures and the Basic Knowledge Of Computer Networks that I was posted here in this site.

But first and foremost before the Computer Networks you need to perfect the installation of the Operating System and its two partitions and Network cabling using the RJ 45, this is very critical of the exam.
