I am wondering how it compares to say the OSCE.
General discussion of ethical hacking concepts, experiences, ideas and certs.

660 you will learn not just how to write advanced exploits, but you will learn some of the theory and technology of memory and processors to better understand why and how exploits work thus enabling you to better build your own no matter what anti exploit technology faces you.
660 also shows a lot of neat tricks for just hacking in general which go well beyond what you learn in any other hacking style courses.
It is in my opinion that 660 coupled with 710 are a great combo since 710 picks up where 660 leaves off in regards to exploit development and goes well beyond what OSCE covers(based on what I have heard about OSCE).
Now OSCE forces you to actually build exploits, but not necessarily understand how or why they work, and you are prompted to learn some of that on your own since it is self paced.
I think those who take 660 are a more well rounded advanced pen tester, and those who take just the OSCE are very good at writing exploits for many situations but not all.
Keeping in mind my opinion may change after I take the OSCE.
I hope this helps!
