The CompTIA Network+ certification preparation course from SimpliLearn is user friendly. It also allows you to study course work via your smartphone or via pdf if you are in a situation where you may not be allowed to access the internet for personal stuff. The pdf also allows you to reinforce your learning at a slower pace than the online tutorial. I am enjoying it.
