my company hired me for Information suppport for networking in a bank, we have server 2003 and 2008 r2. I dont know the first thing about networking let alone a server. i start in 2 weeks and im scared i will fail. They are training me from scratch and i do not have computer education. they gave me the job because i have been with them for 4 years and are will to teach me.

this is a big opportunity for me and i dont want to blow it. I start in 2 weeks and i want to cram as much as possible in to my head. im not so good at reading, im more of a visual worker. does any one have an ideal for ways to memorize things, understand concepts and key words, whats the worst mistake i can make, what to watch out for, and if you know of any good dvds that will show me complete training on dvd but in baby words since im a newbie. im so freaked out! Thanks a million. please save me..... lol :D :D

If they are going to train you, then you have nothing to worry about. They will ensure you learn all that you need to know to get the job done.

First things first, networking is all about that wonderful tool we learn to use in kindergarten, it's called sharing. Networking is simply computers connected to each other so they can share resources. If you really want to jump the gun on your training, head over to your local library and see if you can check out the Networking for Dummies series. http://www.dummies.c...0470534052.html

I have read a few chapters here and there from the "for dummies" series, they are written simply so you can get the basic understanding of the topic. I know you said you are a visual worker... but the visual part will come on-the-job!
