      I consider myself a very creative (out of the box thinker), would programming (specifically PYTHON) allow me to use that?

      Another question….

      I almost have my CCNA, also have my A+ (which means nothing since everyone has it), I was thinking about:

      Linux Certs
      Windows Certs
      Net +
      Security +

      useful or redundant?

      Was also thinking of a
      Win 7 and server 2012 certification as well. I find jobs to be a bit difficult, so far to get. I want something stable/steady with good $ (50k +) so that I can focus on more than this.

      Curious again if these will help or some are redundant?

      I also (surprisingly) dont hear alot of people using Kali-Linux. Is this something that everyone uses and thus so, nobody seems to mention… or… is using this considered being a “Script Kiddie?”

      I worked for a hospital for about 5 months. I took HIPAA training. Online test. I think you can probably go through a vendor who already has this training set up and then have you be the admin of the course… see everyones scores/retakes/create accounts etc.

      What is a good beginner book for learning all this stuff about Linux and what your referring to: IP Tables and such. A good overall book to get my feet wet.

      CCNA (Almost finished)
      CCNA Sec
      CCNP Sec
      Net +
      Sec +
      Linux +

      I dont know how long all those will take.

      Thinking about doing a foreign language and bachelors or something at a college?

      I forgot to add…

      Anyone ever interested (don’t know the specific name) in those courses (not computer related) on how to bug-out or disappear if your being chased looked for… disappear course. I’m sure for this type of career those skills are useful. Even if your doing it the legal way.

      Curious, from a security standpoint- how valuable is a Cisco CCIE Security?

      Wasn’t Kali Linux already hardened?

      I am not that familiar with it, but its basically the same as Debian correct?

      I am going to do the Linux + relatively soon. But I am also curious about another poster mentioned the same thing for CCNA Security???

      I am surprised to hear that the one exam route is easier. I always think if I end up not passing then I just wasted 300$ 🙁

      Odom’s books are super detailed… like chock full of things. I got both books for 40$ I think. 30% discount. Came with a simulator and a couple tests. At one point your just going to have to dive in and do it.

      The other thing is I hear Cisco routinely changes the passing scores…? If too many people pass they raise the bar.

      I have a 3550 (layer 3) and 1 2950 (layer 2). Also have a 1750 router. All three are flashed with the latest firmware to give things like SSH and whatnot.


      their are other ways to find material… p2p networks is one. GNS3 with a IOS pack is another way… you can only simulate routers- HOWEVER you can in some IOS models make it a SWOUTER- which is a router with a 16 port switch blade. So you can do both.

      Live Lessons

      IMO do a video course, take notes and then read the book. Its much easier. Mr. Odom’s book was easier to read after I understood the material in a video I had already watched.
