Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
I would recommend this course for anybody interested in securing a computer and their online identity. Everyone needs to know computer and networking security these days and this class covered everything. The instructor made the learning fun by calling it "offensive security" and teaching us how to work and think from a hacker's point of view. After all, if you can think like a hacker and have their tools you can secure yourself from them better.
Highlights of the course were the troubleshooting labs that taught us how to hack so we may protect ourselves from hackers. It was not easy, but because the instructor made it a point to help us individually and share experience for the whole class, it seemed fairly easy to grasp.

Advice for students:
I would advise you to be determined to take and finish all lab options for the course instead of just doing forums and writing a paper.
