Hey ZF - sorry to hear about your bad luck. Are you still planning on retaking the exam? I've heard some say that you're better off doing it right away because of the likelihood that the exam is the same.

Re: OSCP exam tomorrow (16th)

zeroflaw.. sorry to hear that, failing leads to success, you will get it sooner or later ;). I am planning to join OSCP sometime this year, even though i've seen scary reviews all around about the exam. (this is not one of them :p)

A few questions to who ever took this course, do they teach you python or C? I am trying to improve my programming skills in Assembly (also memory mapping) + C before entering the OSCP, that actually helped me understanding Buffer Overflow concepts, do you guys have to program or something during the exam?

Cheers!

You're welcome to write code in any language, but for the course, they focus on python and shell scripting. If you prefer perl, ruby, or whatever else, that's fine too. You should know some shell scripting anyway as you'll be interacting with Linux machines, so being able to quickly script something is ideal.

No, they do not teach python, C, Ruby, Bash, or any other language. "Introduce" might be a better word. The key thing here is that you don't need to be fluent in any of the languages, just familiar enough so you can understand what's going on. However, like ZO said, it's predominantly python & bash. Realistically, if you can read/write python you can probably do enough ruby & perl with a little googling.

Re: OSCP exam tomorrow (16th)

That's to find out during the exam. Ideally you should be familiar with all topics covered in the syllabus before attempting the exam.

Re: OSCP exam tomorrow (16th)

As good pentester I always start any certification with some OSINT  ;) So I came across a post that said metasploit can not be used (or just once) and I agree with this limitation but does this also mean we can't use the scripts for exploit writing? I am talking specificly about pattern_create and patter_offset.

Before your exam starts you'll receive an exam guide which contains information about what's prohibited to use.

Re: OSCP exam tomorrow (16th)

I think the best way to prep is just to dive in and start. It's part of the experience to figure it all out as you go along.

Re: OSCP exam tomorrow (16th)

In my review I gave some general advice regarding the exam. It's also worth to read other reviews on the exam to pick up some more details and recommendations.
