I've read the official CEH book by Graves, viewed the Career Academy video series, and I started reading the Exam Prep CEH by Michael Gregg. I plan on working the lab exercises from Exam Prep on my lab (w2k3 DC, w2k3 ISS and MSSQL, my attack laptop with WinXP, while considering if I want to install Linux or just use a live CD on another PC.
I do vulnerability scanning, so I am familiar with NMAP and various vulnerabilities and exploits. I've used Ethereal (Wireshark) and I am comfortable with them. I plan on focusing on Snort, Nessus, and Metasploit.
I am feeling really good about this.
