Oh man, way to jinx yourself by posting before waiting for the results :o

Re: OSCE... check!

@ajohnson - I know I got my points, so they'd better not even find a way not to pass me , this time :P

@Dark_Knight -
The exam was a challenge, and to be honest, this was attempt #2.  Looking back, I SHOULD have nailed it the first time, but like all Offsec exams, you gotta guage your time, and make sure you leave time for each host (particularly if one or another gives you more trouble than you thought), and I did NOT do as good a job as I should have, with that, the first time.

As for the material, the courseware, by itself, gives you a good base, but admittedly, I had to go beyond that and improvise, on some things, along with some outside research, to pass the exam.  As always, they expect you to think outside the box, and work for it, while not making that impossible, for the given exam targets, within the time allotted.  As always, they expect you to have the ability to combine multiple topics / attack vectors, to achieve success.

Funny thing...  Sometimes when you nail a given target, you're amazed, not only at what you knew or learned, but by how easy they really are to pWn, looking back.  (That is NOT to say any were particularly simple or 'easy', just that, if you're truly ready / prepared, they really aren't as bad as they might seem, at first.)

Re: OSCE... check!

Although you have no official word yet, it should be clear if you have passed or not, so congrats, hayabusa! I was pretty sure that you'd pass with your second attempt. ;)

What is next for you?

Re: OSCE... check!

Email came a couple of hours ago.  Passed.  ;)

Unsure what's next...  (Besides a short break.)  Gotta wrap up SPSE soon (maybe next month), then undecided.  Likely some family time catch-up, before any big choices.

Suggestions?

Continuing the Offensive Security track, have you considered the OSEE or the OSWE?

Rumor has it there's a second OSCE pass, by an EH member, this weekend (just got an excited IM)  Waiting for the announcement from them, as I don't want to steal their Christmas joy!
