  • Dakota State is about $1200 per class (3 credit hours) so it isn't bad at all. Definitely one of the reasons I chose them.
  • In the 2 classes I've had so far, the professors have recorded their in class videos and those are posted for the distance students. We also used some inexpensive books and DSU has a website called "Desire2Learn" that most of the class content goes…

  • I'm currently taking my second course at DSU and am enrolled in the Graduate Certificate in Ethical Hacking. I will most likely be moving into the MSIA program afterwards. I've really enjoyed the classes I've had so far and the instructors have be…

  • Seems to me it would be hard to rank schools if you don't have first hand experience with them.
  • I start a new job next week and really for me it was when I received the official offer letter from the organization. I guess it is possible that they can contact me before I start and pull the rug out from under me, not sure how that works from a …

  • The cost of hosted Exchange gets very expensive the larger the organization is. For instance, 20k users at $3-4 per mailbox is $60-80k per month. You can easily build an exchange deployment for $400k that will last you a good 3-5 years.
  • Go with what you want to do and have a passion for. Don't pursue a degree/career just because it pays well, you'll most likely be miserable.
  • I'm really not sure how strict they are on the pre-reqs. I haven't applied for the MSIA yet, just doing the graduate certificate right now.
  • In my Offensive Network Security class last semester I think I spent $10 on books, the professor mostly went by his notes. The graduate students had to read a book called "Cyber War" and take some quizzes on it, I believe it was $8 for the Kindle v…
  • I'm currently enrolled at Dakota State University pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Ethical Hacking and will move into the MSIA program afterwards. I can guarantee you won't be teaching yourself. About a year ago I was trying to decide between …
  • Your best bet is to just start going through Technet. Exchange Server 2010: Exchange 2010 Help
  • I have one that I use on our playroom TV. I have one SD card that runs RetroPie for game emulation and another SD card run RaspBMC. I have a dual-tuner card in my main PC that I intend to record over the air TV on and then watch the shows on the R…
  • What kind of workstation do you have? Instead of spending money on a server that will be loud and require more power, why not just toss 16 GB of RAM in your workstation and an 1 TB HDD? My main PC at home works just fine for a small lab running VM…
  • Why not keep your job and go back and get your Masters on a part-time basis?
  • If you want to become a software engineer then I wouldn't bother with the normal IT entry level certs. I would just start coding. Find an area that you are interested in and just start whether it is web or your standard local programs. Maybe see …
  • I'm currently enrolled in the Graduate Certificate in Ethical Hacking program at DSU. They have changed their coursework a little which isn't reflected on the website right now. I'm enrolled in INFA 736 - Offensive Network Security which is a netw…
  • Be sure you know Snort rules, hping, netcat, and how TCP/IP communications work (know the flags and sequence of communication).
  • My path over the past 13 years has been. desktop/server support in a small company->desktop support larger company->systems admin in same larger company->larger company bought by even larger company and eventually promoted to senior syst…
  • ptilsen is spot on. This is usually the case when it comes to a MS in Computer Science. I spent a good part of 3 years taking prerequisites for a MS in CS because my undergrad degree was a Business/CIS degree. I never finished my prereqs and have …
  • I use Google's Blogspot.com and if you want to do videos then the easiest thing would be to upload them to Youtube and link them into your blog.
  • Just got back from the testing center and passed verion 7 with an 80%. Not as good as I wanted to do but I'm glad it is over. Some of the questions were worded kind of bad and I had at least one that I knew the answer but it wasn't one of the ch…
  • I haven't taken any classes at Dakota State yet but I do know that these 2 professors are two that I will be taking classes with. Dr. Josh Pauli ==> Home Home I believe they both have spoken at Defcon/BlackHat and do penetration testing on…
  • You should check out Core Courses - MSIA - Master of Science in Information Assurance - Dakota State University. I am starting next Monday and will be working on a Graduate Certificate in Ethical Hacking but will most likely move into the Masters o…
  • If you are running Windows 8 then why not just use Hyper-V? It is built into Windows 8.
  • Good Luck. Just scheduled mine for Aug. 26th at noon.
  • You should be able to run a decent lab with your current box.
  • It is a combination of time and coming up with creative entries as to why my blog has little content.
