Thank you for the answer.
Congrats for the book, I didn't know you have one.
About the study methods, I like the books but I prefer the practical certs. Unfortunately there are not enough practical certs. Yes, the offsec ones, eLearnsecurity, and few others, but the rest are just books.
I would love to see certs that cover the same curricula like SANS, for example, but the exam to be hands on only. It is possible: forensic, incident handling... Maybe not online, but it is possible.
Congrats Vivek for the cert. I followed some of your Metasploit videos and I really liked them. Because I have done OSWP I will skip the wifi cert, but when you'll have another one put me on the list.
Until then I hope that I will finish GWAPT and OSCP, at least
PS Maybe someone starts a new topic with a practical course/cert they will like to take/pass (at a decent price), and some of the senior members will come with a solution. As an example Vivek has wireless and maybe Metasploit; Jason and Ryan can create one where they’ll test your scripting skills. Maybe will not be very appreciated by the HR, but we will appreciate the ones certified. Also, when someone will be in a hiring position will be able to differentiate between two candidates.
I am doing certs for few reasons:
1. You learn something
2. I am lazy and I need a deadline in order to motivate me to work harder
2. They are good in the resume. The HR people and the pimps (recruiters) love them
