Since my last post, I’ve managed to get chapters 5 and 6 of Darril Gibson’s book read and I’ve completed the end of chapter review questions for those chapters. There has been a bit of convergence lately with my community college classes. For example, chapter 4 of Darril’s book covers wireless security which is the same as Chapter 8 of Mark Ciampa’s book. We just covered chapter 8 in class last Thursday so I felt like I got a double dose on the topic. Tonight in my A+ class we’ll be covering chapters 9 and 16 in the IT Hardware Essentials book by Cisco. Both these chapters are on security and cover topics such as security policy, viruses, worms, trojans, etc. So it seems as if I have been getting security material on all fronts recently. After class tonight I’ll be watching Survivor from the DVR and after someone gets booted off the island it is on to chapter 7 in Darril’s book.
