Just had my first attempt at the exam and failed so going back through materials. I *think* I know what you are aiming at here.

Re: OSCE advice?

I wouldn't take it too badly - I failed my first attempt and am currently revising for round two. Wish I'd found this thread before starting (that and read a bit more around the topic)!

Have to say that the OSCP and the OSCE have been the absolute best courses I've taken in this field. I didn't find the CEH or 7Safe offerings to be much of a comparison, despite their prices being far higher.

Re: OSCE advice?

Have you found any specific good materials to review?

Hard to have this conversation without spoilers for others. :-)

Re: OSCE advice?

I may have gone overboard. Amazon is a terrible beast!

I'm currently getting through:

    Windows Internals 6th Edition
    The Shellcoder's Handbook
    The IDA Pro Book
    Hacking Exposed Web Applications 3

I found that I was blindly fuzzing things and looking to copy techniques without really understanding what was going on 'under the hood'. I'm also using OWASP's WebGoat to practice.

I find going through the exercises in the books to be the most useful thing (for me). If I don't apply what I read it just slowly exists my brain! I'll supplement my reading list after looking through this thread though.

Do you have any thoughts?

If you guys want to post general topics you're struggling with, we can try to provide additional resources.

Also, feel free to PM me if you're concerned about spoiling anything by posting publicly (though you won't get any spoilers in return ;))
