Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

Hi All,

I have just downloaded practice tests from uCertify for what I think is version 6. It is for the 312-50 exam. Is that version 6? I would like to get a book to go along with this, but everything I see is years old except for these 2:
http://astore.amazon.com/thedigitalcon- ... 1435488539
http://astore.amazon.com/thedigitalcon- ... 143548360X
Which of these books would be better? Is there a book that would be better for me other than these 2? I want to make sure that whatever book I get covers the new material in the v6 exam. I have not worked with much with network security although I do have Security + certification and have been in IT for about 10 years doing mostly PC work with a little server background (Server 2003 MCP).
Thanks to all who could point me in the right direction.....

Hi Virtualwolf,

I personally would go with the "Official Certified Ethical Hacker Review Guide" because the other book is part of a 5 book series. I used the earlier version of the review guide by Kimberly Graves that covers the version 5 exam when I was studying for the v6 exam and found it to be good for getting the basics of each subject into my head. But I needed to do further study on each topic from other sources (the official courseware mainly)

The exam objectives in V6 are the same as in V5.

Re: Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

My understanding is that V6 official course ware has a lot more hands on lab exercises, but the information is still the same.

I read the Official CEH Guide by Kimberly Graves and the Exam Prep by Michael Gregg.  Graves taught me what EC-Council wants me to know.  Gregg taught me why I need to know it and how to apply it.  I also banged out some of the tools in my patchwork lab using two Windows 2003 servers, a Vista and XP client, and a VM ware image of Backtrack 4.  The tools I focused on were Wireshark, NMAP, and Snort.

Good luck!

VW,

I have both the books you've linked us to and I would suggest getting both, plus the other 4 books in that series. It's a 5 volume series.

Re: Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

Thank you all so much for replies. Very helpful. Andec, did you pass the exam? Has anyone out there used the uCertify products? It is the first time I am using them after not much luck recently with Transcender. I checked out a couple of demos and uCertified seemed the best and so far I really like them, but all I want is for them to get me to pass the exam. Thanks again everyone...Happy trails....

Re: Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

Congratulations Andec!!! Can you tell me a little bit about the format of the test, such as the following?:
How many questions were single selection multiple choice?
How many questions were multiple selection multiple choice?
How long were the questions in general (one, two, three, or more sentences?

Also, what is your IT background?

And again congrats and thanks for your feedback....

Re: Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

Also, as far as the questions go:
How many present a scenario and ask how many of the tasks will be accomplished?
When they are multiple selection multiple choice, is there many that say "Choose Two" or "Choose All That Apply"?

I hate the ones that say "Choose All That Apply"!!!

Thanks

Re: Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

@virtualwolf. Because of the non disclosure agreement I signed before I took the exam, I am not sure that I can be very specific about the actual exam. I will say that there was a good mix of single/multiple answer questions and the majority were more than 3 sentences long. I think that's about all I can say about the exam.

I get the feeling that you are worried about being able to answer the questions in the given amount of time. If you are prepared, you won't have a problem.

My background in IT is as a programmer.

Re: Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

Thanks for the info. Andec. I just want to make sure I am prepared. I have failed the last 2 out of 3 exams I have taken. The last 3 I have taken are very different from the practice exams I studied.
Windows Server 2003 "The Beast" (Failed)
Security + (Passed)
Windows Vista (Failed)

I have several others that I passed (A+, Network+, Windows 2000 Workstation, & Windows Server 2003), but I don't want to fail this one because it is extremely expensive and there may be a job opening soon in Network Securty where I work.

Can anyone tell me if they got any questions about hexadecimal?

Thanks to all.....

Hexadecimal isn't really that hard to understand. Do you have any specific questions about it?

Re: Many, Many Questions about CEH v6???

Hi All,

I'm new at this forum!

I would like to have some advice on the time it on average a person takes to prepare for the examen. This is important for me because I've read somewhere that from the beginning of JUne the objectives of the V6 will be examinated on the examen. Until that date the objectives of V5 are valid!!

As I've read that the objectives are extended for the V6, I prefer to be examinated based on the V5-objectives. For these objectives the books and other study material is finalized.

So this is a serious request for advice. Based on the answers you are giving me I have to decide if I will sit before the beginning of June or not!

For your information I can not start preparing before mid of March!!

Thanks for your answer in advance.
