    So far I have read through the pdf and watched all the videos. I am making another pass and actually documenting the exercises to ensure I get credit for the course. I think I will start cracking boxes this week. Time has not been on my side since I started this course...

    Try to begin asap and review later, you will keep reviewing several times when something doesn't work

    To clarify, you get credit for documenting the exercises that come along with the pdf? I thought the extra credit was for hacking into the lab hosts. Anybody?

    So when I took my exam I did not include the lab/exercises.
    I just submitted a report with the exam machines only.
    I didn't document everything fully when I was in the labs, else I probably would have submitted lab docs too.

    The lab/exercise documentation comes into play if you are borderline passing the exam. If you are close enough in points, they may give you extra points for including the extra documentation.

    I chose not to do it because I had plenty of points on my exam, and didn't need the extra points.

    Excellent advice, I made a lot of progress last night doing this. The odd thing is, this how I usually operate in an academic setting... begin executing and review as I go through.

    Ah, I see! Cool beans. I think I'll go ahead and document the Labs and not the exercises. Hopefully, it doesn't boil down to that.

    I decided to bite the bullet and am enrolled in the OSCP course that starts on 26 April, is anyone else starting near that time? I find if I have someone studying with me, it helps keep us both honest and focused on the goal. I would hate to spend this much money and then let life overtake my goals of improving myself. Good luck to all taking this journey, it looks like a challenge!

    Howdy. I found this thread looking for a Study Group on Google. Unfortunately, it looks like I can't send PM's until I reach X posts to see if people want to exchange contact information. Feel free to PM me or message me on freenode (ipp), if you want someone to bounce theories off and keep eachother motivated.

    I've went through all the material, and have made decent progress in the labs.

    Need to finish GPEN , but as of this morning submitted my request for the 90 days of class plus exam. Last time took employer over 4 months to approve and pay for SANs, so I figure that will give me time to finish the GPEN then get started on OSCP.

    Should be starting in the next week or so, should have passed OSWP yesterday. I just need to see if my company will front most or all of the cost cause I really don't have the money to.

    EDIT: Seems the next start date is May 9th, count me in for that one.

    If you're wanting to work in pentesting, red-teaming, or the like, then yes the ROI is definitely there. OSCP may not be as big on HR filters as the more well known security certs (CISSP, CEH, CISM, etc), but when the hiring managers and team members that get the resumes see it, they will definitely be interested in at least speaking with you because they know what is involved with getting the OSCP and if you have it, that you at least have practically applied the requisite skills.

    It is high ROI, yesterday I was reading a document for PCI DSS how to do a penetration testing and in the qualifications mention OSCP (like recommendation )

    Means that the ROI will be higher than I was expecting

    I've spent a minimum of 16 hours a week on it and peaked at 20-24 hours. I've had rough time at getting at it on the evenings (loads of travels these days) and therefore I've dedicated my weekends at it. When i can't be on the labs i'm reading the lab guide and watching the videos when time permits.

    I've owned 4 systems yet but absolutely avoided metasploit.
    Spent my last Saturday on windows priv escalations & C code adapting/compiling for Windows under Kali
    Watched about 70% of the video contents
    Went back and forth in the lab guide for roughly 50% of its content

    Personally i think that this certs actually will give me the best ROI possible which is tremendous knowledge and respect among the industry i'd say. Also, the people behind HR, the ones at the security teams - they sure know about it. And concerning price i think it's a really fair cert. For example, any OSCP exam retake is 60 US$, what about a CISSP retake or a CISM retake??

    When I first started I was putting in a ton of time. It was almost a second full time job. I would easily put in 8 hours a night into it.
    I slowed down considerably by the 2 month. Down to 2-3 hours a night.

    I guess I need to put more effort, I only owned 3 machines.

    I bought the book: Python for Pentesters, it is a good book, I am on chapter 2 and now I am experiment in the lab with my own scripts.
