Default Speeding/Speed Zones

Okay...this is what I learned in Driving School, circa 1983. When approaching a speed zone while in a 55mph zone, you have until the SECOND reduced speed sign to get to the new speed. For instance...I'm driving in a 55mph zone. I see a sign that says Reduced Speed Ahead or Speed Zone Ahead. Then I see 45mph, then I see a second sign that says 45mph. Was I taught wrong or do I have until the second 45mph sign to get to 45 miles per hour from 55?

In case this law varies from state to state, I'm in NY.

Would love to know your answers...
