    Signed up for the end of the month. I assume my studies for the GPEN will cover these domains.

    I think I might do this as well. I was planning to do the CSA+ to renew my other CompTIA certs this year, but I guess I should do this first. I'm fresh off of passing my GPEN, so I think most of the knowledge should already be there... Just gotta pick a date.

    Okay, okay; I'm in. I wasn't going to do this one. I see Reddit just discovered this beta cert so might as well sign up before all 400 seats are claimed.

    Still mainly studying for CySA+ and going to concurrently read an older version of the GPEN books cover-to-cover one time through to prep for this. Scheduled for beginning of March.

    I downloaded the exam objectives today. There appears to be a lot of "Given a scenario" type requirements, like they did for the Cloud+ beta. Looks like it'll be a combination of multiple choice and performance-based questions. Looks like it covers a lot of ground. I wonder how much practical there'll really be.

    I signed up for as late as the test center will let me, which is 4/20. I'm currently finishing up my last class for my Masters and studying for the CASP, so I'm going to be cutting it close since I'm not sure how much studying I will be able to do for the PenTest+. My last class is vulnerability management, so hopefully I'll retain some of that info.

    Having just finished eJPT, I'm really tempted to sign up for this beta exam. However, I'm supposed to be using this time to get caught up on projects around the house that I neglected while preparing for eJPT. Do I really need Pentest+? Probably not. Argh! I could stand to live without a deadline for awhile. Must...resist...urge...to...test....again!

    Just heard about this. I can't see it in the market out of DoD and like someone said, maybe some management positions.

    I noticed on CompTIA's website that pass/fail information won't be available until Summer of 2018, but a numbered score will be given at the end of the exam. Can we assume that the passing number will be 750 like the CySA+?

    Take a look at the exam objectives pdf I posted earlier.

    On that note:
    "4.4: Given a scenario, analyze a basic script (limited to Bash, Python, Ruby, and PowerShell)"

    Overlooked that one the first time. Looks like programming is on the exam.

    Just got home from taking the beta. Obviously a multiple choice test will never outdo OSCP, but this one gets as close as it possibly can. Knowing the CEH material will not be enough to pass this, unless they make the cutting score incredibly low. There was a wide variety of technical topics, and you have to actually understand how the tools work to answer the questions. This test is going to make EC-Council irrelevant, which is amazing.

    I signed up for late April, but for you TE folks that are certified PenTesters already, how did you prepare for OSCP/CEH/etc exams?

    Did you create a lab network at home, install several different OSes (XP/Vista/Server2003/200 on old systems or VMs, managed switches, 2nd router, web server (IIS & Apache), secondary WAP? I guess you would want to do this so you can test some of the tools that are on the exam, right??

    Cheers & Hi5!
    2018 goals -> PenTest+ Beta (failed), CEH (Oct), Linux+ 103 (Dec)
    2019 goals -> Linux+ 104 (Feb)

    There is no numbered score given.


    Oh. From their PenTest+ page:

    Passing Score ​Pass/fail information will not be available until summer 2018; candidates will be notified. Only a numbered score is issued at the end of the beta exam. No exam objectives appear in beta exam results.


    Would've been nice to compare scores for the hell of it.

    750 points seems like a safe guess to me.

    if it's anything like the other CompTIA test it's mostly theory and headaches with no real substance

    after I finish the required CompTIA test for WGU I will not be taking anymore soft skill test
    Currently enrolling into WGU's IT - Security Program. Working on LPIC (1,2,3) and CCNA (and S) as long term goals and preparing for the Security+ and A+ as short term goals.

    You late-March and April test-takers need to read closely:

    End Date: When 400 people have taken the beta or April 25, 2018.

    If you're planning on taking it in April, you have a pretty decent chance of having your testing fee refunded.
    2018: CCIE Written (R/S) (done - Jan), CCIE R/S
    After that: MBA, OSCP

    EANx, People don't like to pay for Beta exams, so I think the Beta will be available until April.

    I read it that they close the sign up to the exam on April 25 or earlier if 400 people pony up their $50 dlls before the date.

    I have heard the same thing. It seems that this may be one of their more popular beta exams.

    You would be wrong in that assumption.

    Just got done taking the Beta exam as well. I will have to agree with you, this exam was difficult. Although I don’t have a pentesting background, I have defensive cyber ops experience and thought I was going to do better than I did. Like said before, you have to fully understand the tools and how they work. Better have some scripting knowledge too. The CEH will be irrelevant and worthless once this certification becomes active and gains popularity.

    Interesting. Thanks for the feedback. Out of curiousity, does anyone know if you're allowed to purchase more than one beta exam if you don't feel like you did as well as you thought you did? Haven't taken mine yet but may ease the nerves.
