ECSA exam: required modules?

I'm looking in to taking the self study road to getting myself ECSA/LPT certified, but i'm a little lost: i already figured out that you need to pass the ECSA exam to become ecsa certified, and if you want to obtain LPT you need to submit your certifications of both CEH and ECSA. This is all there is to it, no exam whatsoever, which is a little odd if you ask me.

Now i was wondering about the following: The ECSA/LPT course consists of 47 modules, where the first 11 are ECSA, the rest are LPT. Is the exam based on the frist 11 modules, or are all modules part of the exam?

it will probably be a while before i am going to take the exam, but expect a little review when i do...
CISSP, CEH, ECSA, OSCP, OSWP

earning my stripes appears to be a road i must travel alone...with a little help of EH.net

hmm, that is what i thought, but some research got me the following information:

    Module 3: TCP/IP Packet Analysis
    Module 4: Advanced Sniffing Techniques
    Module 5: Vulnerability Analysis with Nessus
    Module 6: Advanced Wireless Testing
    Module 7: Designing a DMZ
    Module 8: Snort Analysis
    Module 9: Log Analysis
    Module 10: Advanced Exploits and Tools
    Module 11: Penetration Testing Methodologies
    Module 12: Customers and Legal Agreements
    Module 13: Penetration Testing Planning and Scheduling
    Module 14: Pre Penetration Testing Checklist
    Module 15: Information Gathering
    Module 16: Vulnerability Analysis
    Module 17: External Penetration Testing
    Module 18: Internal Network Penetration Testing
    Module 19: Router Penetration Testing
    Module 20: Firewall Penetration Testing
    Module 21: IDS Penetration Testing
    Module 22: Wireless Network Penetration Testing
    Module 23: Denial of Service Penetration Testing
    Module 24: Password Cracking Penetration Testing
    Module 25: Social Engineering Penetration Testing
    Module 26: Stolen Laptop Penetration Testing
    Module 27: Application Penetration Testing
    Module 28: Physical Security Penetration Testing
    Module 29: Database Penetration testing
    Module 30: VoIP Penetration Testing
    Module 31: VPN Penetration Testing
    Module 32: Penetration Testing Report Analysis
    Module 33: Penetration Testing Report and Documentation Writing

    Module 35: Ethics of a Licensed Penetration Tester


which seems quite a lot for "just" 50 questions, that is less then 1 per module!

Re: ECSA exam: required modules?

I did ECSA a couple of months ago myself, so I'm quite sure it's only the first ten ones. ;)
