    I'll have to do one "When a Degree isn't a Degree". In Canada if you attend college you end up with a Diploma (whether it's a 2 year course or a 3yr). While if you attend University you get a Degree (whether it's a 3 year course or a 4 year). WTF is an "associate degree"?

    /sigh something else the planet obviously needs to standardize.

    An associates degree is an degree earned after 2 years of study in college. Its the lowest degree on the totem pole.

    Hell no! We're keeping our feet and inches, just like that other third world country!
    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

    So I decided to tackle a 2 year Associates degree at my local community college. I opted to get my degree in Network Administration. Since they don't offer a class called "Everything you need to be a Ethical Hacker" or something obvious like that,..I opted for this. Is it a good choice?? I have prided myself on my unique ability to be self taught and to be able to apply that knowledge. Now I want to step it up and be the best wireless security or best network Admin that I can possibly be. I'm 31 years old and droped out of high school to join the Army National guard at 17. Then I got my GED in 2000. I passed my entrance exams with flying colors..all except algebra. So I have to take 3 semesters of remedial algebra untill I can take algebra 101. I haven't any clue if what I chose is right to be a penetration tester...but its all that I saw that my community college offered. There were some cert classes...but to tell you the truth..I don't have a lot of faith in myself to be able to pass any certs....yet.

    So over the next 2 years my attendance here will be cut dramatically. I apologize in advance to everyone for my soon to be lack of presence here on forum.remote-exploit.org. But rest assured, I will be on as often as I possibly can. I have classes Monday and Wednesday from 10-2:30PM and Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00AM-4:30PM.

    Wish me luck everyone. And any advice or encouraging words or help on what certs or alternative degree plan would me much appreciated. Thanks guys for encouraging me to strive to be the best here, at college and beyond.
    it depends on what certs your going for, but im A+, Network+ and AMP TYCO certified. all were very easy tests as long as you know your stuff and study before the exam. the only drawback to these is they are expensive. average is about $225 for one test. ask your counselor, some schools have testing centers and offer tests at a discounted price. since i attended the career and technology center my senior year at high school i took my exams exam made by comptia and a few other for 1/2 price and can go back any time to take more at the 1/2 price rate.

    btw, i dont know where you guys are going for an associates degree but the cousre im taking, computer netwoking and systems administration, is only 5 grand a year. granted it has bs gen ed classes that teach you how to resize windows (yes, dragging the corners to make the window larger) the information in the course is very good and their job placement rate is 98%

    Thumbs up

    Ok!! UPDATE!!!

    I took my first college algebra test today....33 questions....

    results are...
    .
    .


    .

    94%!!!! My first College A !!!!

    I only missed 2 questions!!!

    So right now..my GPA is 4.0!!

    Sure hope I can keep that GPA throughout my 2 year stay..but I'm off to a VERY nice start!! Grant it, its a remedial college Algebra course..but God Damn it I'm proud of myself. I flunked Algebra and Geometry so bad in H.S...but then again..I was to busy trying to get my first piece of ass and getting drunk and getting high..I was "2 Cool For High School" ...Funny how what you hated when you are younger (like going to school to learn)...comes back and bites you in the ass like that huh?? Difference now is that I WANT TO LEARN..and back then 15 years ago..I didn't want to even be in class....Well that and I'm having to pay for college...that has a LOT to do with it as well.

    Thanks again guys for listening to me rant about my college life. I really am enjoying it and learning about Network Administration. Please feel free to give me any feedback and support you can think of.

    Later guys!!

    4.0 is maintainable as long as you can stay diligent and not party too much!! I think being that we're about the same age, we're both old enough to realize that school, especially when we're paying for it, requires that we take it seriously enough so that we choose study time over the (random) Tuesday night kegger

    Good work man

    Yep..my kegger days are behind me now. Not real far behind though...just far enough away that I can still reach em. And thanks for the moral support.
