dimo, may I ask which materials you used for studying for the CEH exam?
hi awesec , of course I should have given more detail for others interested in sitting,,,,, so here goes...
The CEH Prep Guide: The Comprehensive Guide to Certified Ethical Hacking
by Ronald L. Krutz (Author), Russell Dean Vines (Author) is what I used more recently,
I started out with Certified Ethical Hacker Exam Prep
by Michael Gregg (Author) , this was good but I think the krutz\vines book was better,
I'd advise anyone looking at CEH to know what the main tools are about, snort,nmap,net cat etherealand the switches used, then attacks buffer overflows-loads of questions on this even though they were mainly 'what attack is this-from an example' type questions.... sql injections also.
To be fair to ec council the exam questions your knowledge on the different stages of hacking i.e. information gathering through to covering your tracks so you should concentrate on what tools get you from start to finish or at least understand the concept .
The key for me in final prep for the exam is covering example questions, you can study security from now until the cows come home but you will need to understand the nature of the questions being asked , that is....how will I be examined, and if you're like me get into the habit of timing yourself and running through 150 examples within the time, keep moving along come back to what you don't know later but don't go back changing loads of questions, it's been proven to undo correct ones
look at the net and books to see the way these are presented and go for it
