101 Labs - IP Subnetting
Subnetting is one of the toughest subjects for IT students and engineers to understand. You have to master binary math, hexadecimal numbering systems and address classes. You must determine which IP address is in which subnet and which subnet mask will provide you with the requisite number of subnet and hosts-per-subnet. You will often have to do this during a crisis on a live network with your boss, customers and other engineers watching you!
Subnetting questions form around 9% of your score in exams such as CompTIA Network+ and the Cisco CCNA. If you work in IT, you will be expected to understand how to subnet and troubleshoot subnetting problems.
