kinda confused, I am reading a chapter on IP classifications and it mentions the high order bits. For example it says that Class A is used for very large networks only. The HIGH ORDER BIT in a Class A network is always zero. What are they referring to when they say high order bit? Just need some clarification, if I can get it.

Thanks Monk, the link is very much appreciated. I have already figure out that it related to on and off bits and the binary counting scheme. but this site will serve me well later on down the line. I am starting to study for my MCSE cert, and I have not been to school in a while. Just had to brush up on a few things. thanks
