Re: Pre PWB tips

If you've got the basics, as you'd listed, I'd say you'll do fine.  The only other 'necessity' is........

TIME

If you've got that, you'll come out alright.  As you're learning, if you have any questions not answered by the offsec folks, feel free to PM me on here.

Good luck, do well, and enjoy the experience!

Thanks hayabusa,

I have got plenty of time I believe, 60 days of lab access.  I'll be doing the course at home and at work, but if I do run out of time extra lab time shouldn't be a problem as I'm company funded :)

Re: Pre PWB tips

Good luck.  I would agree about time and perseverance! I would like to add great note taking . Really helps during report time.  You will enjoy the pain, trust me.  Sad but true.  ;D

Re: Pre PWB tips

Your python skills will be really handy and the habit of documentation is really good and helpful.

Good luck and all the best.
