Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

It's personally your choice, you could go for the 30 day training or the 60 day training depending on how much money your willing to fork out. After the training you take the final challenge.  8). What I'd like to know is, how many hours per day do you guys spend in the lab practicing?

Congrats to Dark_Knight as well. We may have taken the exam at or near the same time. Just now getting around to joining the fun here.

To answer the most recent q, I took 60 days mainly just to build up my confidence.

I highly recommend getting 60 days of lab time.  It will take some time to work through all the materials, and you will want to have some time to get through the final challenges, as well as the "extra mile" exercises, and perhaps to work on additional machines in the lab not attempted or addressed in the courseware.

My second question is: Did you take CEH before this exam?

Hey eternal_security waz man? So this is where you are these days  ;D ;D ;D

<impelse> I did do the CEH before this course. However they are miles apart. The CEH acted as a good introduction to the world of security imo.

Hey Dark_Knight,

I've been around, on IRC too...just a little sporadic over the past couple of weeks.

<impelse> Like Dark_Knight, I also did C|EH long before OSCP.  I highly recommend OSCP.  C|EH was a good introduction, but it is very tool-oriented.  OSCP is more concept-oriented and helps you develop the pentesting mindset better, IMHO.

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

<eternal_security> I took mine Jan 16-17. What a fun experience.

To those considering this path, I also recommend getting 60 days of lab time up front unless you already have a couple of years hands-on experience with pen testing. Even so, the extra lab time might be nice to bring your l33t skilz up to this century (relatively speaking of course).  ;D

For me, I had about 50% of the course content under my belt, but all of it was self-taught. Having the structured course materials that matched up with the vids worked well for my learning style.

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

This would be a great new thread. Be sure to ask for thoughts on the differnces on both the 2 courses AND the exams.

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

I have time on my hands at the moment and was wondering if 30 days/9 hours + a day would be enough for this course or would I be better going for the 60 days?

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

It really depends as there is alot of 'research' you need to do to compliment the learning experience.  However, if you are spending 9+ hours a day and maintain that for the 30 days, you can amass enough knowledge to see you through.

It is a excellent course, you wont be disappointed!

Good luck!

Re: Next Up OSCP101 v2.0

That helps a lot since I don't know anyone with nine hours a day to sustain for 30 days.  Seriously, thanks for the opinion.
