Default College Course Relating to CTN-Rate

Greetings ALL,

From the list below, can someone please let me know the best courses that I should take in order to be more prepared for the CTN A- and C-school.

I'll have to pick one category and take 4 classes in such area and then have 2 separate classes from 2 other categories, such as the main 4 classes from Network Security and taking 1 class from System Security and 1 class from Forensics.

The * means that if I select such category, I will have to take that class first.

The thing about the navy is they want you to learn things their way.
So taking "prep" classes aren't necessarily the best thing to do.
Take classes you are interested in.

Those look like some badass classes. What school?

I agree with Guppy though, the military does tend to teach things differently

#Guppy: Understood. Yea, there is an array of classes that I am interested in and of course, learning a new way is great. Even if it's similar material, I believe you learn something new with a different instructor, etc.

#BonzerAsp: It is Rochester Institute of Technology. They recently had a "Collegiate Pentesting Competition (CPTC)" and placed 2nd I believe. I think the Navy Academy was there, too.
