      I only lacked admin network because lab time was over for me…
      70% of boxes were pwned by hand no using metasploit, only nmap and exploits from the web.

      @xXxKrisxXx Thanks for answering most of my questions:) I read most of reviews I could find… because of them I decided to participate in course.

      I already signed up for the course and Im refreshing my knowledge about assembly language and buffer overflow because I think I will have most problems with that…

      Im starting 17th March and took 60 days lab time.

      Keep thumbs for me πŸ˜€

      Have you seen this review?:

      We all learn differently and do so at different speeds. Also we all have different background experience and not everyone can put in the same about of time. Having now completed the course, I would say if you want to “just pass” the course and can put a good couple of hours in each day then you could get away with doing 30 days – at a push. However, if you want to take your time, learn it and (try to) “do it all”, I would recommend 60+ days in the lab. I started off with 30 days, with the hope of cramming it all in as I could spend 8+ hours a day on it. In the end, it took me a solid 30 days in the labs (not including any of the exercises before the lab work), so I ended up extending it by 15 days. If I was to do it again, I’d opt for 60 days and pace myself better.

      Yes I have read the review and that 60 hours is probably the best option for me right now because I dont want to be hasty if getting to know new things and polish up everything I know so far …
      It was good choice to ask questions here on forum πŸ™‚

      I forgot to mention that I can spend like 8 hours a day on that course that is one of factors…
      Right now Im thinking about taking 60 days on labs… I think that should be enough, and maybe some additional time if something goes wrong…

      One more question :

      Is it better to take 1 month labs and if I need more time than buy additional time or it is better to take straight 3 months from the start?
