QoS Outline
The point of this post is to outline where I am headed in my studies. I have been reading three different books in regards to QoS and am starting to believe I have gotten off track on what I need to know for ONT. I’m not too worried about reading too much, but I am worried about retention and memorization for the test. So this post is an outline of what is covered in the ONT book, I will then backfill notes in different posts from all three books. My goal is to formalize my understanding of the topics and keep them in a logical order for when I go back through and start doing exam prep questions from the different books.
