    Question Anyone on the OSCP journey soon?

    Hi all,

    Is there anyone else which enrolled the PWK/OSCP journey ?
    I'm looking at making contacts in order to potentially exchange infos and advance together..

    Thanks in advance,
    regards,
    m.

    I started on the 21st but I haven't had as much free time as I would have liked so far. I have been reading the PDF in little free time I have had thus far. I hope to actually begin the modules and labs this week.

    That seems to be how every OSCP thread here has ended up at one point or another. I've been wanting to do it too but have had to put it off until end of year.

    From what I have read, I estimate that I will have to spend 500+ focused hours to pass the OSCP. Might be able to do it in 250, but am planning on 500. I am going to miss my wife and family but have learned how to balance work, sleep, and family time.

    For the last five years I have been racing road bikes. It takes a lot of hours and work to be fast enough to win races. Since I quit cycling, I am just transferring that training time to OSCP time. Having 3 kids and a stay at home wife is all the motivation needed for me to not waste any time. If I were younger and single I might not be as motivated to get it done.

    I've tabled on that as well, roughly 500 hours -- let's see how this goes but it's clear that nothing worth having comes easy.

    --> mabraFoo; i'm starting on the 12th of April and i wanna be your buddy in this ! let's get in touch??
    --> probably the best advice I've gathered while reading about PWK/OSCP for me was that one; "do this with a friend"

    See ya fellas,

    I'm in the same boat as impelse, started awhile ago, got overwhelmed, and now ready to get back at it after a break. It seems like there's a good group going through and I'm going to renew the labs next week.

    Going to SANS next week for SEC401 so I'm going to do the GSEC in the next couple of months and I'm committed to doing the CISM in September. It's looking like this time next year for the OSCP.

    Reading the CISM Review Manual 2015 made me sign up for PWK/OSCP =)

    I began my journey yesterday, also just got confirmation of my acceptance into SANS work study for the SEC 505 course. Really, excited about this year of 2015!

    Lets keep in touch, and try harder!
