    Default Passed my GWAP exam

    I tried twice- first time I failed by 1 mark and the second time I passed by 14 marks.

    What really helped me was -OWASP wiki and bWAPP by Malik Messellem.

    My Background is a technical product manager and QA. I want to go for consulting, and developed as a Cyber Defender.
    I am thinking of GSEC and CCSK. Any advice?

    GSEC is kinda a step back from GWAPT, I'd recommend GPEN as a follow-up to that.. but now you will be specializing more into the PenTest route.

    As a cyber defender, your have a lot of options but GCED/GCIH are good options to start with.

    CCSK is totally different subject though.

    Congrats on the pass. How close did your exam match with the books? My books are from last year and I remember reading in another thread that there were changes to the exam questions this year.

    First time, I was only depended on the books but they are not useful. I read OWASP wiki a lot and download/install bWAPP and practice on it. Lots of practice.

    Thank you for advice, I think GCIH is good. I have worked a lot on IDS. I think CCSK will be easy and will help to understand the cloud little bit and it is an easy one to get.

    Congrats! I personally thought it was a really straight forward exam. Everything you need is in the material. I read through it 2.5x times and created a solid index of over 350 items. Granted I do web app pen testing at work for last several months so that definitely helps in my favor.

    Don't get me wrong, I studied my butt off. Studied on lunch break, then after work until 10-11PM many nights. All day on weekends. I feel it is pretty obtainable in 30 days or even 3 weeks if you have the disciple.
