    i know this are broad certs, anyone specific specialization to go for? I am partial to anti hacking, i have a CEH in mind but i realize that requires proof of positive character, i unfortunately don't trust my school, i believe they would try to sell me something before they gave me real advice, that why i recently signed up for this site to get real world advice, not a sales pitch (school is new horizons btw)

    If you are going the Security route, make sure to take the Comptia Security+ exam. It will get you a basic understanding of best security practices. After that, I would try to get some real-world experience at a job for a few years, studying for the CEH and eventually go after the CISSP.
