I'm planning on taking most of these, but since they're really expensive, I wanted to see which certs you guys would recommend
Network + Certification
Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) -- I've heard this one is a joke.
Security Certified Network Professional (SCNP)
Security Certified Network Specialist (SCNS)
Security Certified Program (SCP)
Security + Certification
Offensive-Security 101 (OffSec 101)
EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA)
Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)
Certified Penetration Testing Specialist (CPTS)
EC-Council Licensed Penetration Test (LPT)
Electrical Engineering course on circuits, capacitors, etc.
Windows/Linux Professional Certification
Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
I didn't even see CCNA on your list which in my opinion is critical if you want to do any network work.
I want to be a pentester, so which courses would u rate as critical?
P.S. (shameless plug for myself here) If anyone on the forum has any job recommendations or open positions for me please shot me a PM
