I do have to say that the Backtrack product is superior to anything on the net.
Saying that, I have recently (re)looked into taking either the OSWP or the Pentesting with Backtrack. Both peak my interest very much and I'd like to get to know BT to its fullest capabilities. But the Pentesting course would be beneficial in what I currently do. With all the comments I have seen, I am curious about a few.
Leo. I've read where learning Leo would be beneficial. Is it something that others think is needed?
Scripting. Is there a lot? Can it be something picked up as the course goes? I have some programming knowledge.
Time. With a full-time position (24x7!), what kind of time did people put in? I know there is 7 hours of video and obviously 30/60 days of lab time. But - did the people that took this take a week off or did they do this at night/day when not working?
As with others, I do not want to be behind in the course. I have had attended several SANS courses and have obtained the GCIH certification. Granted the semi-new GPEN certification is more in-depth. Being able to take a week off to attend the SANS courses are beneficial since you can (try to) put work off for that week.
Any thoughts or comments to these courses are appreciated in helping me make my decision. I just have to take that leap. But first, I would like some reassuring information!
Thanks in advance!
