But its taking forever to get towards the actual classes for my major. So im looking for material to study on my own.

I have an A.S in Information Security (It's called information security not internet security). You are not going to get to the advanced classes in an A.S program, you are just going to get introductory classes, and a few intermediate classes.

If you want the advanced classes, you should transfer to a 4 year school.

If you live on the east coast, each of these schools offer INFOSEC:
UMass Amherst
WNEC
Norwich
Champlain
Kensington State University

there are probably more as well.
