      Start by searching these forums for the answer to your question.

      I think we need a board titled ‘Newcomers’ or ‘New Members’ or something similar where we can copy all of the posts that answer the above question.

      AS biillV said search the forums as this question has been asked about a million + times.

      But here is a quick breakdown

      learn to program perl or python
      build a lab to practice you hacking
      read read read and read
      if you can afford it do some course OSCP,Security +,CEH,Hacking dojo,eCPPT  so on
      Be Ethical dont break the law
      google and search functions are you friend
      IF you can develop tools and give something back to the security community this help get your name out there

      And last but not least Have FUN!!

      I don’t know your background but if you’re completely new to I.T…then I suggest

      – studying for the A+ and Network + exams
      – learn about TCP/IP
      – google “ethical hacker, penetration testing”..and just read anything and everything about the field.
      – go to dice.com, simplyhired.com..type in penetration tester, vulnerability assessment.. and look at what type of experience and knowledge they are looking for.

      First off, welcome to EH-Network!

      I think Jamie and YuckTheFankees summed it up pretty well.  

      Above the “have fun” part, which I think is really important I would add one personal advice:
      To gain knowledge make it a habit to ask yourself the question “How does this work” and try to answer/research it yourself. Researching by yourself first, will help you to constantly learn new things. At least this is what I always try do do  ;D  

      Hacking is about getting down to how things work, reading about them, learn everything there is about them -> therefore devoting TONS of time  😉

      Again welcome to EH-Network.  Looking forward to read more from you!

      Hi Abmart,

      Welcome to EthicalHacker.net. I couldn’t agree with BillV anymore. The best place to start is the search function. This site has been around for years and a lot of questions have been answered. To attempt to help answer your question, the best place to start is to cover a few threads where new comers have asked the same questions and have received responses. Below are some links:

      @ gromic,

      That’s probably one of the best things anyone can do. I’m currently reading about computer forensics books, and as I go through the book, I make a list of the terms, commands, tools, or concepts I don’t really understand, then I go back and researched them further. It’s validates what you have learned and read.

      Thanks everybody for their numerous contributions, I know about netwroking and from what I have reading here now, I think am  gaining something, if you know any books that I can buy to read about CEH I will be glad if you can tell me.

      Thanks once more.
