Re: eLearnSecurity opinions?

I have an opinion about this thread.  I'm currently working on this cert.

I have found that for me this course is one that personally I could afford, spent my staff training budget I think on CEH. But wanted more, so for the first time in my career I put my hand in my own pocket for a course.

So far I can honestly say I don't feel anyway disappointed.

The course is a real challenge instead of a walkthrough for a change, been on many a course over the years and a few other cert, this course encourages me to think, research, test and learn.

I like the fact that vulnerability  assessment tools don't make it easy,I expect that manual testing and proper understanding and willingness to research etc is what a tester needs to be.

I can also say that so far commitments that have been made to learners to continue to improve the value have been met and I don't foresee any changes to that.

I have recieved support to broaden my understanding from the tutors, the forum is the main method at the moment, but like someone else pointed out there is a need to be patient which I can understand.

I don't know if it is best to do perhaps ceh, sec+ before you go for this one but I would at least suggest anyone thinking of signing up makes sure they allow enough time for independent research. Like I said there is no walkthrough, and its not like training for a mc exam.

One more thing I will add lifetime access at the price set is also of value.

Re: eLearnSecurity opinions?

Will do. Hopefully well, my feelings about my confidence levels of passing are up and down :-)


But it wont be for the lack of effort.

Re: eLearnSecurity opinions?

Again, thank you all for your input.  After reading all of these posts, and seeing that PTP has been updated with additional information, I'm starting to consider taking the class again.  I can probably get the $$ allocated from work, so it's just a matter of deciding if I really think it is worth the time and money, and getting my boss to approve it.

Has anyone enrolled since the courseware has been updated?  If so, how much value to you think the updated information adds to the course?

Thanks!

Kind regards,

Re: eLearnSecurity opinions?

Here's the update information:
a) The upgrade consists of an overall improvements in the language, corrections of typos and a multitude of minor bugs.

b)We have also included a new wonderful module for you to study: SOCIAL ENGINEERING
You will find this module, including 30 minutes of videos on Social Engineering Toolkit, in the Network Security section
.

I haven't checked the module because my semester exams are going on, so I can't comment on the updated content.

Re: eLearnSecurity opinions?

With regards to the upgrade there has been  a variety of improvements in terms of the readability of the slides. I have still noticed a few bugs, but as yet have not had a chance to feed these back to Armando at elearn but I am confident he will be happy to hear about these and improve further.

The new Social engineering section is quite informative and the SET video is excellent in my opinion.

I also believe improvements are on the way with regards to more labs and further expansion of the report writing guides.

Re: eLearnSecurity opinions?

Does the Web Pentesting module have to be done first, or can the order be switched around?

Re: eLearnSecurity opinions?

I am not sure about the price of the student version. I believe that this is to be set and will be public fairly soon.

Content wise this has not been made public yet but I believe it is to lead up to the Pro version so more introducing concepts and skills that you need to get you up to speed for Pro.
