Introduction Hello and welcome to the CompTIA Network+ courses by Pluralsight. I'm Jason Helmick, an author here at Pluralsight, and in this introduction we'd like to address some of the most commonly asked questions about the certification and the exam. Now I say we, because today I'm joined by the two authors of these courses, Tim Warner and Ross Bagurdes, and gentlemen, welcome to this little interview. Now before we start discussing the Network+ certification, why don't you guys take a moment to introduce yourselves, I mean after all, people are going to be kind of hanging out with you for quite some time as they learn about the CompTIA Network+. So, Tim why don't you go ahead and start. Sure, well, my name is Tim Warner. Like you Jason, I'm a full-time trainer with Pluralsight, and I guess I'm more of an IT generalist because I love technology so much, I just will teach anything that I have an opportunity to, so I'm awfully glad to be your co-instructor for this Network+ learning path. Well that's fantastic Tim. Ross, how about you? So I'm Ross Bagurdes, I'm an independent author for Pluralsight. I work full-time at a college in Madison, Wisconsin teaching IT data networking. So I have a lot of experience working one-on-one with lots of newbies trying to get up and running into the world of IT. On top of that, I have nearly 20 years of industry experience just dorking around with all kinds of IT equipment. Thanks for introducing yourself guys. You know you both have a lot of experience, and certainly well qualified to teach these courses. I actually, I'm really excited to check these out for myself. Before I do that, I think it would be very helpful for everyone to learn more about the certification and exam process. So, coming up next, let's talk about the most commonly asked questions regarding the CompTIA Network+ certification.
