  • Thanks for all the comments.  I’ll definitely check out the Shon Harris videos, thanks for the suggestion H1t.  As well the CISM evaluation might come in handy.  Since i don’t really know the format or “feeling” of the questions on CISSP, I’ve been casting a pretty wide net and relying on memory techniques.

    For example, I’m not sure i need to be…[Read more]

    Don’t be too worried. The CCNA:S is like Security+ but from Cisco. You can probably study up and pass it without too much work. I think my CCNA took me like 5 months but the CCNA:Security took like a month and a half.

    Thanks knwminus.  I’m still going to re-read the Todd Lammle book and throw my notes into an SRS system to get…[Read more]

    I remember trying GNS3 back when I was originally studying for my CCNA but I recalled having a lot of trouble with it.  I’m sure it’s made some serious strides in 3 years so I’ll check it out again.

    I’ve got the full meal deal with the dead tree pages, dvds… you name it.  I’m just using the book for now, since I feel I should get some use out of that thing other than a door stop, or something to smack a burglar with.  Though.. if I had a kindle, I’d probably use it. :/  Santa never arrived with one this year heh, maybe ne…

  • Not sure if you got the book with the DVD included, but if you did, there is a chapter-by-chapter copy of the book in PDF format included on the DVD.  Pretty nice for tossing onto the Kindle/iBooks/etc instead of carrying that brick of a book around.  When I’m reading at night, I’ve taken to reading from the dead-tree version, but when I’m at w…[Read more]

  • Just went through the copy I bought today (recently decided to push from System/Network Admin into heavier security and work towards a cert) and only counted 8 diagrams in 50 pages that I selected entirely unscientifically.  It varies, obviously, but as I look through it, it’s not what I would consider diagram heavy, and what diagrams it has…[Read more]
