I have not received the welcome kit yet however I did pass the exam. I sat through the online class and took the exam the very next week. I passed with a low score but I still passed it the first time. It was a great feeling when I was handed the printout showing I had posted a passing grade on the exam.
It has not impacted my job in one way or another. I have seen quite a few sites that are listing CEH as a hot cert for 2010 and the DoD validating it also boosts it the value.
I do not believe that having the CEH will be a game changer by any means. In fact, it feels like I did all that work for nothing but personal glory. I don’t believe recruiters will be chasing me down the street because I passed the CEH but ya never know I guess.
