CEH self study - eligibility code

Hello friends,

I will be taking the CEH exam EC0-350 in a week's time . I have received the eligibility code as well. I must admit that I am not so confident of passing the exam, so might postpone it to another week.

But, I wanted to know if I failed the exam can I use the same eligibility code used in the 1st attempt, to register for the exam second time again? Please clarify? I am not able to obtain any information from EC-council on this.

Regards,

Mes

If you do not pass the exam, you will need to obtain a new eligibility code. You can do so by sending an email to info@eccouncil.org

Thanks for this!  I failed awhile ago and was just going to use the same code...

Thanks for the clarification Bill.

Grinch, please inform us when you receive the eligibility code the 2nd time. By the way, How was the exam? Were there a lot of logs related questions? What was the percentage that you got? How long have you been preparing and what were the reading material used?

Re: CEH self study - eligibility code

Failed by one point (69%).  I used a lot of stuff:

CBT Nuggets (information is old)
Exam Prep CEH
Offical CEH Study Guide

I think the shear amount of questions is what really got me.  Plus I should have known Nmap a lot better.  Beyond that, just had to focus a little more and I expect a pass this time!

They got back to me late last night and said I had to buy a voucher for the exam and then e-mail them back for another code.  Not too difficult and fairly fast response.  Hopefully be ready to take it in a week!

Re: CEH self study - eligibility code

hello,

sometimes, books are theory based and it's for your understanding. However, it should be noted that most exams test you on how to apply the tools you've learned, not churning out facts. (although simple ones like social engineering, ethics and moral is there for few marks!)

so the best for you to pass the exam is to do a lot of sample questions. like i mentioned before in the previous thread, the nearest and closed to the real exam is the Pass4sure test which consist of 600 questionnaires in it. (disclaimer- I'm not promoting for them!).

In addition, i also noticed that the exam focused a lot on the following:

1) Nmap (types of scan -O, -U, Xmas, and interpret the scan results using which switch etc)
2) Snort capture results (IDS)
3) know how to read ethereal results (sniffing)
4) enumeration (Netbios, SMB, types of port used 137, 139, 445)
5) analyze the logs result (mostly buffer overflows)
6) Sql injection attack on website
7) use of Net-cat
8) interpret the C or C++ codes (mostly related to buffer overflows again)
9) pwdump, lophtcrack and know how to read the password hashes (less < 7 char)
10) types of DDOS / DOS -> Smurf (ICMP) and fraggle (UDP)

I hope that helps and good luck.

Cheers,

kennut
