    FYI in "Types of attacks" the definition of Whaling is incorrect. Whaling is when high level employees are targeted by phishing, not when the email appears to come from them. This is confirmed by a question on the practice exam.

    If you used the ITPro training materials for the exam I have a question for you...

    I just finished the practice exam with a 66% after completing all 27 hours of lecture. The test expected FAR more in-depth knowledge than the videos provided. Is that how the real test will be or is that just how the practice exams are? I was surprised how under-prepared I felt taking it.

    I don't know if anyone's pointed this out, but zeros look like lower case o's in this font. Not critical but it briefly confused me a couple times.

    Since all private addresses start with FC0, doesn't that mean you could put the network ID in the first segment? So I could have 10 networks, FC00 - FC09. That makes addresses even shorter like FC01::1. Is that allowed?

    When a device grabs an IP, is it not assigned to the NIC? IF the NIC operates at level 2 then why does our device need an IP?
    Just signed up, love what you're doing here.

    Other numbers are confusing, too. Example:
    FF09 (FF-zero-nine)
    FFog (FF-"oh"-"gee")

    So why not just use the router's WAN IP for internet routing and use only MAC addressing on the internal network? Is it just for the convenience of managing the network since they're easier to remember than MACs? I doubt this is relevant for the certification but I'm just curious. Thanks for the quick reply!
