How to retain what you'll learn in this section
This section has several commands that will be demonstrated to you. It will be difficult for you to retain all of these commands by just watching the videos. We do our best here at Server Academy with challenging quizzes and hands-on IT labs, but ultimately you've got to roll up your sleeves and put it to work to remember.
Take what I'm showing you here in this section and try it in your own IT labs or any projects you've got going. The more you mess around with these commands outside of this course, the clearer it’ll become – when to use them, why they're handy, and all that.
So, don’t just stop here. Play around, make mistakes, and learn from them. And if you've got a real reason to use these commands, even better! The best way to understand them is to see them in action, doing something meaningful. Alright, with that said, let's keep moving forward! See you in the next lesson.
