Re: How long did it take you to finish the CEH test?

I spent about 3 hours on the test and then about 30 minutes on review. I did not feel rushed and I did take my time. I passed very nicely. :)

My experience:

The test was not really that hard, but then I have done my due diligence. What makes it "hard" is just the fact that there is a lot of stuff to memorize.

<removed> I removed my comments - no questions in here but not sure I can talk about some of the issues with the test...</removed>

All in all, not to bad.

My study method.

17 years of security experience ranging from desktop security to my current job as a Systems Admin/Security Admin for a hospital.
AIO book - Read cover to cover, doubled up on what was new to me.
AIO practice tests - OK for the test, but I wish there had been more of them.
CEH review guide + practice test questions.
Official course ware (OCW) - Read all of the slides and doubled up on the ones new to me.
Train Signal's free video training on CEH.
This forum.
Web research on topics I had issues with.
Hack lab to practice using the tools, sniffing traffic etc.
750 flash cards made by me, for me, based on AIO and the OCW.
1 hour at lunch M-F doing Flash cards ~ 3.25 months.
2-3 hours M-F doing flash cards, practice test ~ 3.25 months
8-12 hours Every weekend doing flash cards, reading the books, reading this fourm, SANs white papers, working in the hack lab, and other various sources. ~3.25 months.

I hope this helps someone else who is studying.

Congrats on passing! I honestly don't remember as it was too long ago. A couple hours I'm sure. Just like you, I know I didn't feel rushed and I had plenty of time for review as well.
