My CEH class by New Horizons has been cancelled twice due to "low enrollment" (I think I was the only one signed up). Because of that, I've had to drop the follow-up ECSA class (which I think would also have been cancelled since I was told I was the only person signed up).
I've read different blogs here and there, posts on this forum, posts elsewhere, and a whole bunch of information across the net that I could find about ECC and the CEH certification with some being good, some being bad.
After reading all of that, I still think the CEH would be beneficial to have and will gain more popularity. ECC has only been around since the end of 2003 and I think that's a big reason for a lot of the negativity towards them.
I'm wondering if anyone here that has taken the CEH and passed, would say that self-study is a reasonable option? I've read the v5 courseware, an exam prep book, and taken notes throughout as well as setup a virtual lab and gotten to know some of the key tools inside out. For the exam, if I pretty much stick to the guidelines listed here will that be good? Can anyone recommend another training center? I think Don had said he went through The Training Camp and enjoyed it. I'm trying to keep the expense on this to a minimum as I'm paying for it myself. NH cost me just under $5K for CEH/ECSA.
Thanks in advance
