A little background:
I am working on my BS in Networks and Security with UMUC and have knocked out all of my general education requirements. I am pretty much only taking courses related to my major at this point. I have a background in Desktop Support with some Server Administration. Currently have Security+ and MTA: Windows Server (98-365). Here is my course plan broken down by semesters and in the appropriate order:

Previous Courses taken with UMUC
A+ and N+ equivalent

Spring 2015
Session 1 (Now)
Intro to Computer Forensics
Cisco Networking – CCENT & CCNA
Session 2
Server 2012 – 70-410
Ethical Hacking – CEH

Server 2012 – 70-411
Computer Forensics – CCE

Fall 2015
Session 1
Server 2012 – 70-412
Advanced Security – CISSP
Session 2
Server 2012 – 70-413
Network Forensics – GCIH

Spring 2015
Session 1
Linux Administration – Linux+/RHCSA
Degree Capstone

I am currently focusing on school and not working, so I am putting in a lot of time into these courses in hopes I can study on my weak points at the end of the course and then attempt the certifications, if I feel that I have a good grasp on the subject matter.

Are there any courses in this list that you feel should be bumped up or down in priority or order? Would the linux course be a good subject matter to have a handle on before working on the forensic courses?

Thanks for taking a look.
