Finished Net+ with 785

I took the exam 06/23/09 My 43rd birthday, I figured it would be a good present to myself if I passed. I have been studying for quite a while. It definitely helps! Read, test yourself and play on a real network if you can. I learned the OSI model inside and out, learned at least 40 well known ports and read the "Tech-notes" from here at least twice...the first time highlighting the important items, then the second time going through and making sure to know them.
Security+ will be next, hopefully this fall. Thanks to all I/O from this site ;)

    Awesome. So what are you overall cert goals?

    Thanks! I studied hard for this pass! I really don't know where to go at this point. I work for law enforcement in their IT dept. I was a Deputy for 8.5 years and moved to the IT dept. due to injuries. I signed on for 4 more years due to them paying for classes etc... I want to learn as much as I can while I'm there, and they're very good at assisting with classes and training, books etc... I am in the process of trying to move to some computer forensics training and think that's where I'd like to go. They have me set to take some training next year on F.R.E.D. (Forensic Recovery Evidence Device) This has always appealed to me, so I'll probably head in that direction. Thats why I'll be taking Security+ next. Any ideas?

    I think the security+ would be a good move. I will be taking that on the 24th due to the fact the I want to work for the government and I do not have a security clearance.

    I have heard that security+ is harder than net+, for this I will be using transcender and reading several books. I plan to try to log 50-70 hours of studying/transcendering (lol). How do you plan to study for it?

    Once I've passed the Security+, I'm moving on to CCE (Certified Computer Examiner).
    This sounds like where I'd like to head...

    ... Professionalize and further the science of digital forensics

    ... Provide a fair, vendor neutral, uncompromised process for certifying forensic computer examiners

    ...Set high forensic and ethical standards

    ...Conduct research and development into new and emerging technologies and methods in the science of digital forensics

    Who offers the CCE? Is that through the police force or something?
