This class was tough.
I was able to get prior learning credit for this class by getting my Security Plus CE certification. It was a great class and being an industry standard certification, it allows me to make a big step towards higher positions.
The minimum that you would learn from this class are the basics of network security, host and application security, compliance and operation security, different threats and vulnerabilities based on the environment. You learn the history of cryptography and each type of encryption level and how each brings different levels of security.

Advice for students:
This should not be the first class in your program. I recommend having a basic understanding of IT before jumping into the class. Read each chapter before class and make notes on anything you do not fully understand the first time around. This way you know what to ask during class.
