Is Professer Messer's Nmap Training Course worth doing?

Some time back I stumbled upon this course and though the website captivated me I have still not make up my mind whether to go ahead with the course.
I think I know a lot about Nmap with the basics of every scan it performs but there's always a chance to learn more.
Would anyone who took this course guide me whether or not to go ahead?

Don't know if anyone's taken that course on here, I bet you'd have better lucky purchasing Fyodor's book "Nmap Network Scanning: The Official Nmap Project Guide to Network Discovery and Security Scanning". It's a lot cheaper and your getting the instructions on how to use the tool from the author of it.

I have taken the course and it IS good, but nothing compared to Fydors book.

Maybe i can post an official review of Professor Messor's training soon =)

Would love to see a review of the course. PM me if this is something you'd like to consider in a more formal way.

Speaking of formal reviews, we do have Fyodor's book out to an EH-Netter. We should have something for you this month.

I've read the book it's not too bad.  I didn't think the topics it covered were all that advanced and at least the version I have is older so it doesn't cover NSE.

Re: Is Professer Messer's Nmap Training Course worth doing?

Wow!  My EH-Net experience has official come full circle.  I originally signed up for an user account on this site to view an Nmap tutorial (and stayed for all the really cool stuff here).  The article gave me an error message saying "Please log in to view this article".  I am sure most of you know that this is an error usually caused by an article being removed and logging in doesn't help.  Here is the interesting part I later found out the article had been removed because of some possible content collision with Professor Messor's Nmap book.  Now I log in today and find a review of Professor Messor's book. LOL!!!  Sorry for being off topic but I couldn't resist sharing this with you all.
