What material is good for CEH v6 ? Exam Prep sufficient?

Hi again!
I want to begin study for the CEH & hopefully take the exam within a months time..
I'm interested in the latest v6 CEH.

I was going to buy the "Certified Ethical Hacker" Exam Prep book (Exam Prep) today as I've read it is pretty good & seems to cover alot of ground.
But I am wondering if its valid for the newer v6 test?

If so, is this enough to study for the CEH test or are there other guides/test materials out there I should look at?
I don't think I want to spend $600-$1200 on a course for CEH, as from what I have read it seems I have alot of the necessary knowledge & experience already - I just don't know what else i need to know for the CEH and want to fill in gaps.

Some background on me, I am an experienced security/analyst & former network/systems administrator. I've worked for a major security company for past few yrs doing Intrusion Detection stuff, so I definitely have the experience required.
I'm familiar with security tools & networking concepts including many hacker tools, attacks & techniques.
By no means an expert & would like make sure I get the right material to pass the v6 exam.

Suggestions?

Sounds like you've got enough work/hands-on experience. I would just go with the official review guide and take the test.

I didn't do the course when I took mine. I picked up a few different books to study from and drove some of the tools around a bit that I was less familiar with. Sounds like you'll be fine from the experience.

Reading about your experience and knowledge I would assume too that you have good fundamentals and more which are needed for the CEH. As you can see in the course outline which topics will be covered I would recommend too, to study those topics which you are not very familiar with.

awesec,

get these:

1) Official Review Guide - Kimberly Graves
2) Exam Cram 2 Michael Gregg
3) CEH Prep Guide - Ronald L. Krutz and Russell Dean Vines
4) Pass4sure test exam

add on to those modules which are new in Version 6.0, that should help.
