Man, it really has been a year since the last thread…..
My late 2012 and 2013 goal was to take a lot of classes and get a lot of certs in an effort to get caught up and well rounded. It was mission accomplished as in 2013 I got my GCFE, GSEC, CISSP, CEH, GWAPT and I take my GCIA next month.
While there will no doubt be some classes and certs in 2014 (I’m slotted to take the SANS 560 in February) my 2014 goals are more skills related than cert related. Cert I should definitely grab my GPEN and then I guess the GREM would be the next one on my list but I want to work on my assembly before I go for that.
As soon as I knock out the GCIA I’m going to sign up for Security Tube’s monthly plan as I think that will do me a lot of good. I’d love to attempt the OSCP at some point in 2014 but will have to see how my time is as I know that would be life consuming for three plus months.
Also, I would like to say thanks to several of you in this community for the information you’ve provided and the time you take to answer questions. This site has been invaluable to me over the past 18 months.

I think dynamik nailed it. I use python in my daily life but I bought an intro to c book a few weeks ago because I realized that I really should get comfortable with C before I seriously try to improve my assembly, reverse engineering & exploit dev skills.

That would be a good way to go while still tossing Vivek a few dollars. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for posting this. Those of us who plan on taking this course but haven’t yet really appreciate it.

When I wanted to learn electronics a few years ago I looked at several books and ended up going with this one. It was great and I couldn’t recommend it more. The name escapes me but there’s a really good blog out there where I guy posted his thoughts after each experiment in the book that I found beneficial a few times as well.
Also if you’re going to go through the book, I would seriously pick up the kits sale or no sale. I did the “bulk order to save money” and it’s not only a pain in the butt but you don’t end up saving anything as no one supplier has everything you need or you end up buying twenty of something you need one of 🙂

Thank you very much for the honest thoughts UK. As someone outside of, but obviously interested in this industry I always learn a lot from those of you who do this stuff on a daily basis.

Awesome Prize Don!
575 would be my pick.

Thanks for the review!! This one is near the top of my SANS wish list.

I got a chance to play one day of Netwars last year in Vegas and I had a blast. I’d like to hear how the four month version compares to the two day version.
I’m sure the answer is yes but have you seen the new SANS 561 course? That one is very high on my wish list.

The Windows key is usually contained on a sticker on the machine’s case. The media can be downloaded from Microsoft itself.
You can absolutely script setup commands but nobody here is going to discuss cracking activations or bypassing checks.

Cool to hear that you’re enjoying the class. I plan on taking those later this year and am looking forward to them.
I’ve got several of the computer forensics certs out there and have taken a lot of the courses so if you have any questions about those feel free to shoot me a message.
