AQA Computer Science GCSE
Networks - Revision
This unit only appears on Paper 2.
This means that questions on it will be knowledge based. You need to learn definitions and the key knowledge elements of the syllabus and will have to write about them.
There may be longer questions on any part of this unit as well as hacking and cracking. The whole unit crosses over in to Unit 8 (ethics) territory.
Syllabus content - a slightly edited version of the syllabus document showing what you need to know in some detail
Booklet to print - an active way to revise the key knowledge required
Key definitions and knowledge - a summary of the things you need to learn all on one slide
Lists from the syllabus - the lists of key points you need to be trying to use in answers
Revision notes - a way of revising. The notes have been started to show you how you might organise the whole unit on one side of paper (or two sides, or a piece of A3 paper - depending on the size of your handwriting.
Note: you will need to be able to write about any of the points on the summary. It's not enough to know that they exist, you need to be able to write about them as well (so, what is MAC address filtering, how does it work, what are the problems with it).
A couple of things that are tricky to learn:
Advantages and Disadvantages of Wired and Wireless networks - along with some Unit 8 EEL work
Protocols - summary of what each one does
