Here's where I am deficient..any tips?

So I am a prior CISSP holder, but I expired in 2014.

 

I am taking Infosec Institute pre-assessments....Can any give me tips on these deficient areas and how to study?

 

Cryptography

Networking - Devices and Models

Databases

 

Did these areas give anyone else problems?

Re: Here's where I am deficient..any tips?

If you're looking for lots of (mostly)good, free security training then check out https://www.cybrary.it.  They have a class on cryptography and many on networking and networking devices, including CCNA-type training.

 

I'm not sure what they've got related to databases... seems to mostly be about SQL injections and whatnot. I don't know if that's what you want.

 

Cryptography is a particular interest of mine. Depending on how deep you want to go, maybe check out "Serious Cryptography" on No Starch Press, which is new and covers a lot of good stuff.  Also, "Cryptography Engineering" and/or "Applied Cryptography", both by Schneier et al.
