Enter OSCP...I hear good things and it seems to be extremely useful in helping one really learn the concepts. But how long does it take to go through the modules? The site recommends the 60 day program and it seems many people here opt for that. Can it be done in 30? How many hours a day does it take to work on it?
My situation is I just graduated with my masters in computer science and am currently unemployed looking for a job. So i have plenty of time and can spend several hours each day easily. If it can be done in 30 days, that would be nice, after all im unemployed and on a pretty tight budget!
Id like to do it now if possible while I have all this time though...idk if it will help me tremendously in my job search or not since from what i hear its not as well known or popular as others even though its every bit as difficult if not harder than most. But i do feel it would greatly help my skills overall, which is the main goal anyways. Its a tough choice...not the cheapest for someone unemployed but if im gonna do it i should do it now...
So is 30 days reasonable if I can put in several hours a day? I also have a pretty strong background i feel in security even though i just now starting to take certs for it. Ive used a lot of the tools already rather than just read about them and have good programming experience from school as well.
