    Default Passed CASP today!

    SO today I sat for and passed my CASP exam. I thought it was a lot easier than what the majority of the people on the CASP forum made it seem. I am just a Network Engineer level 1 at my current company. I just studied on and off since January but never studied consistently for a week straight at any given point. I used the Sybex and Pearson books to study from. Read the Sybex book once and just think it was not very helpful nor fun to read. The pearson book was amazing IMO. I used the practice exam that came with the book and the Transcender practice exams. I watched some of the Cybrary videos way back but found them to be way to bland so I did not finish them. I found some of the Pearson and Transcender questions to be some what more difficult than the exam questions. Some simulations were tough. I honestly had more doubt in my head at the end of my Security+ exam last year than the CASP exam. Next I am thinking of skipping the HR friendly CEH and going for the OSCP as it is more challenging. I was thinking of the CISSP but I find policies and management to be so extremely boring. Not to mention you need to have years of experience to even take that exam. I have been working in the IT for 2 years. But been messing with computers for about 12 years. The last couple years I really got into hacking and purchased and read books like "Grey Hat Hacking" and "The art of Exploitation". Dont get me wrong, the exam was hard.

    Can I put the CASP in my signature at work? I see people with like "CCNP, CCNA Security etc." So was just wondering if I should since it is a big exam.

    Congrats!

    I think the email signature question at work is mainly about culture. If your work environment condones it, then add it. At some places (like where I work), it might be seen as an ego thing and most of us don't care about that. Other places it might be important (like where security is a customer facing selling point). If there isn't a specific culture, then adding it will draw attention to yourself - which may or may not be a good thing.

    I guess that advice was a bunch of nothing...

    My rule of thumb is... It depends on where you work.

    If your co workers do it, then you can follow suit. If they don't then I would not do it

    Absolutely, put it in your signature block. You earned it and you want people to know you passed a rigorous hurdle in your career. Your co-workers are not your measuring stick. Are you aiming to follow or lead?

    You probably want to check the prerequisites for OSCP before you jump straight into it. Definitely get Linux first. Congratulations!
