I need some advice in pursuing cyber security. Currently I am enrolled in a Career Center that is ran by a local college (Tidewater Community College).
It is a 2 year program I am currently in the 2nd year. The program consist of
CompTia Core 1
CompTia Core 2
The first year I took the CompTia Core 1 and failed by a couple questions
I did not get to take the Core 2
I am suppose to take the Network+ exam soon
I am now learning security+
I have a decent understanding of networking and there parts but not in detail to be able to understand how to fix a problem in a scenario.
What should I do in order to succeed in pursuing this career?
To be more specific I am confused on where I should be heading.
I am thinking about going to ECPI which is a hands on local college that has programs on cyber security and will enable me to pursue certs.
I believe I want a degree but am worried on certs.
