Well, I've finished About U's Introduction to Security Tools, and I can't say I'm the least bit impressed. There was no depth to any of the sections of the course, and the "final exam" was largely random, insignificant memorization in which many of the correct answers could be guessed since the other choices were so obviously wrong. Should we care? Maybe not, but I'm always concerned about people thinking they know something about an area when they don't. And this Introduction to Security Tools will generate a few of those people. OTOH, I'd like to mention their Spanish Word of the Day as a worthwhile use of time.
