I really like the idea of studying the metasploit book.  My work schedule
often keeps me from attending the classes, so take my vote for what it's

> FISMA Compliance
> Security Blitz on OWASP
> Mobile Security
> TrueCrypt
> Kiosk Security
> OWASP Top Tep
> Malware
> PhP security (Cheet Sheets)
> Scripting Languages
> ZAP\Webscarab\Burpsuite
> Geolocation use\exploits
> InfoSec Professional Development (Certs\Resumes\etc)
