Just like so many people have mentioned, I can get through the first five modules pretty easy (learning backtrack, learning some BASH/python, port scanning, enumeration, etc..)but from module six and on, I know I will have to do A LOT of outside research...which I'm completely fine with. I'm not going to lie, going through the buffer overflow section for the first time was like reading Japanese.
The further I get into the Lab pdf, the more I feel a little overwhelmed. I kind of wish OffSec would give you the choice of going through the PDF and Video's for a week or two, then starting the lab time. The material is totally worth it but I can't help but think I'm losing money by reading, researching, and watching video's..rather than messing with the lab.
My personal goal is to get everything done within 60 lab days and take the test some time after that.
Well I better get back to the pdf. Any comments are welcomed.
