Answering a public message with a public message that you PM'd is LAME !
Ahh, and sternone goes on the attack, again... Sorry if I hit a little too close to home on some remarks, here, but since he obviously asked for it...
@sternone - You should be shocked that I'm not openly cheering on a course, right? Oh yeah, I forgot, you think I'm an Offsec employee or something, and am "lame" as a follower of their drivel... Yet, if anyone's read
my review of Samurai Skills, you / they should have SOME idea, already, as to my answer to the question. posed in this thread.
Since you so adamantly want to know...
He asked if it was worth taking as a supplement. Sure. ANY class is a good supplement. The reason I PM'd him was to explain that, while Ninja-sec does have some good info in their course, it's NOT the same as Offsec's, and is NOT what I'd consider to be a 'primer' for OSCP. Each has it's high points, each has it's low.
Just ask sternone about low points, he'll be glad to point out every minute flaw he can find in something, even when he's OPENLY started a thread with nothing but praise, and only starts ranting when he realizes the challenges and realism that he so blatantly praised Offsec for, in the beginning of the thread, are now frustrating to him...)
Sorry sternone, but I shoot straight, based on what I see. What's the phrase... 'Takes one to know one'?
I saw some responses to some things already, on your thread, else, I might've already hit you there. (Funny how karma bites you in the @$$ sometimes, huh?)
That said, OSCP is VERY rounded, and challenges you on a lot of areas, while making you think outside the box. Very little is actually 'handed to you.' While I've admittedly NOT spent much time in Ninja-sec's labs, their course spends a lot more time 'specifically' guiding you through certain attacks, leading to root access (so MAYBE, if he didn't like the OSCP lack of 'specific' hand-held practice, sternone might've felt better in Ninja-sec's course. Perhaps his multiple monitors come in more handy for watching instruction and step-by-step stuff, so he can keep up, I dunno...
When I say this, I'm NOT down-talking on Ninja-sec or their course. Everyone's teaching and learning styles are different. Ninja-sec has good information in their course, and I'm glad I am given the opportunity to review for them, as it's interesting to see different approaches, and to have SOME idea what to recommend to people, depending on their funds, needs and learning styles / abilities.
