maybe you should try picking up a book and just reading it. then again, if you want credits, thats a different story
I've been thumbing through some books here and there when I get a chance to head down to BAM, but most of the network security books are either too simple ("How to use Anti-virus software!") or over the security features of Windows Server 2k3. And then there are the books that have the word "Hacker" in the title which are just a marketing ploy. They don't teach you anything but are rather more fictional than anything.
Since I have to take so many hours of credits, you can bet I'll be taking some classes like network security 101.
