Bundy Posted May 10, 2012 Share Posted May 10, 2012 (edited) So, I made a post that I was interested in taking the offsec courses and learning backtrack, despite having no prior linux experience, and not having any education regarding computers. I was told I need to have a deep understanding of computing and networking, as well as linux or I will be lost. I want to rectify the situation, and am hoping you can direct me to some good books and online resources that I can use to get more familiar with networking, and that would help me develop a deep understanding of computers, that would help me get ready for delving into the offensive security field. The hardest part for me when posting this is not knowing where I stand relative to where I need to be. I don't have any formal computer courses. I am the person who all my friends come to when they have a computer issue, however. I have dabbled around in different operating systems, but am pretty much clueless in anything command line. Sorry for the post that I am sure falls under the "How NOT to ask a question", but I tried my best. EDIT: Also, if there are any other good online courses/certifications that you think I should take before the offsec courses, please let me know as well.
