    Did you do the required reading for VLT2 or just jam out the papers? I have VLT2, FXT2, LQT2 left to graduate.
    When you go the extra mile, there's no traffic.

    I think they want like 70% of your paper to be based off the reading, the remaining 30% can be from you own experiences.

    Sorry for not replying NotHackingYou, I missed the notifications. I pretty much just powered through and wrote the papers. For several I did not use references or only used the required reference such as ISO or NIST. It worked out well for me.

    Time for an update, I finished my second term courses a few days ago and start my third term tomorrow. Term three is CEH and CFHI, should be fun.

    Thanks for the follow up. I am still about a year from completing another Bachelor's (online) from a local state school, but pondering WGU and this track when I complete it. I am used to no hand-holding from the current coursework. Is there any benefit to earning the C|EH, etc. prior to starting at WGU.....Would such help from a time crunch perspective, class credit, etc.? I've pondered doing C|EH this Summer as my Bachelor's coursework will likely not offer a class I can take over that term.

    The only real advantage would be that you wouldn't have to take the course, it would be shown as satisfied. You may be able to accelerate enough to cut down the number of terms and save the tuition however if you take the normal four terms there wouldn't really be any cost savings as the costs of the certification are included with the tuition.

    I would not take it prior to enrollment unless you need it to satisfy the prerequisites like I did, OR your employer will pay for it. They're expensive exams.

    Study for it ahead of time, and then you'll be ready to take it once you enroll.

    Thanks for posting your progression and thoughts. I will finish my BS in June and want to pursue an MBA.ITM from them. Conflicted with that and the MS.CSIA since I am trying to move into the CISO/CSO space.
    2018 Goals:
    Complete certifications - CRISC | CISSP-ISSAP | CCSP | Project+
    Finish Degree with SNHU - B.S., Business Studies in Computer Information Technology
    Start Master's with WGU - Undecided (MBA.ITM or MS.CS&IA)
