While I think I understand where you're coming from, eRiCtHyReD, I tend to disagree. Don't get me wrong, as I self-study a LOT more than I attend bootcamps, etc. However, bootcamps have more value than simply "sitting on a 5 days class to see how the instructor show you how to hack stuff..." (And this statement obviously depends highly on the training provider / individual instructor, attending members of the class, etc.) I do agree, that simply attending the bootcamp is not enough, and you should spend a lot of time in your own labs, practicing and learning the true workings of the tools and processes / procedures behind CEH.
Bootcamps offer real-world scenarios, where you can discuss, openly, the various attacks, and how they might affect certain sectors differently. In my particular class, we had attendees from the NSA, as well as folks from Police / FBI and other areas. We had the opportunity to openly discuss, and SEE various tools and methods they've used (not just the instructors,) and how they used them, and it wasn't simply a generic 'how-to' on the tools, themselves. Further, you gain insight into thought processes of other pentesters, and might pick up different ideas for how certain things might be accomplished.
So, while I do understand the feeling of "You better practice on some VMs rather than sitting on a 5 days class to see how the instructor show you how to hack stuff...", that's fully dependent upon the circumstances of the individual class offering you get. If it's a well-instructed class, and they offer off-hours lab time and opportunities for discussion, it's well worth it, IMHO.
