Re: OSWP Exam

Yep, probably their worst course. Needs to be updated to include enterprise auth with wifi.

Re: OSWP Exam

There's plenty of room to expand beyond 802.11 as well. They could do something similar to SANS 617/GAWN and also include ZigBee, Bluetooth, RFID, etc.

At the same time, it's pretty cheap, and the quality/quantity of material is fair for what you pay.

Re: OSWP Exam

The course has been updated since I did it, so I can't comment on the new material. I'd agree with all the the other comments made so far.

At the time I read the following book  to expand on the material whilst doing the course and found it useful:

http://www.amazon.com/Hacking-Exposed-W ... b_title_bk

Another book I've heard good things about but haven't read yet is:

http://www.amazon.com/BackTrack-Wireles ... +backtrack

Re: OSWP Exam

The backtrack book is meant to be pretty good and as its written by Vivek I would expect it to be. Of course he also have wireless course on securitytube that may cover more or less might be worth looking into tho.

Re: OSWP Exam

I was studying Vivek's course and decided to try for the OSWP new version. I watched the videos and practiced for two weeks, then took the test and it took me 3 hours to hack everything, get all the screenshots, make the report in a very clean fashion with intro, scope, attacks with screenshots... the whole nine yards and send it off... 24 hours later I got the good news... I was OSWP

With Vivek's material you do a lot more than with the OSWP, I decided to go for the cert because of the OffSec reputation, but Vivek's video course it's a lot more complete
