    Default eLearning's PTSV3 and eJPT

    For those that were still interested in the PTSV3 course and the eJPT certification I completed it last night.

    The course itself was a good walk through of the basics, as well as a few things that I needed a refresher on, specifically web application attack vectors. The slides were fairly simple, with more in-depth explanations in the videos. This is one thing that I didn't like, I'm used to having the training material being a transcript of the slides so that I can reference what's happening in the videos at my own pace. The labs were well put together and most could be completed relatively quickly. This is where I learn the most, putting hands on is great. Compared to other courses I enjoy how the end of the lab file has a walk-through for what they want to be accomplished. While "try harder" is great for some, when you have limited time and want to be shown what they're looking for, it helps (Especially in a basic course).

    The certification test was fairly simple. You're given a lab environment and a multiple choice test with 20 questions. 15 out of 20 (75%) is considered passing. The questions are things you can answer as you penetrate the lab (What is user x's password, etc). The test followed the labs very closely. I kept the pdf's open for the labs as I went through the test just to keep a method. I went question by question and followed my method. You're allowed 3 days to complete the exam, it took me about 2 hours. I answered 18/20 questions correctly. It doesn't tell you what you get wrong, so I'm not sure, but I think one I got wrong because the answer as far as I could find wasn't a choice. I have no idea what else I missed.

    If you can follow the labs while using the lab guide solution areas, you'll be fine. It's just an entry course and they didn't make it that hard. I went a bit further and found a program called netdiscover. Try using it out in the "find the secret server lab". I used it on the test just in case, but it wasn't needed .

    Congratulations on your Elearn Security Junior Pen Testing certification! I wanted to upgrade to the full package for $99 but it seems that deal was gone when I tried, and they wanted $199 instead, so I passed on it, but I have looked over the course materials for the barebones package.

    Thanks for the review! It's good to see people getting value out of the course. Too much other stuff on my plate right now to take the course, although I have the 'free' access to the slides. It sounds like the real value is in the videos and validation by means of the labs / exam.

    Congratulations on the pass. The more I hear about this, the more I lean towards tackling this over the C|EH.

    Just finishing the course, I plan to take the cert next weekend.

    I liked the course it teaches some good practical stuff and gets right down to the point, I wish it went into a little more detail, but I really like the way the labs are structured with VPN access, and the labs mirror very well what was taught in the videos.

    A pointer though, to really master things download Metasploitable 2 and the practice the attacks in deepth against this vulnerable by design machine. Yes you can hack it with metasploit and armitage, but there are dozens of vulnerable web forms to practice cross site scripting, sql injection, brute force etc. Take my advice on this though, use burpsuite as your HTTP brute forcer, hydra can be a real pain to tweak to a web form and throws lots of false positives.

    Also, suplement the metasploit stuff with the free video series at pentester academy.

    Good luck slinuxuzer! Keep us posted!

    I've been slacking a lot, and not studying, but I like the course so far.
    Goal: GCFA (DONE), GPEN

    Yea, I've really enjoyed it, I just wish the pentesting professional course wasn't so high. The interfaces have been really easy to use, and I love the way the lab guides pop up in a nice web PDF.

    Default Information on ejpt certificate

    I have a aspiration to become pentester but I have no pentesting experience. Right now I work in operations space. But, I have my bachelors degree in electronics and communication. I am aware of OSI models and different protocols. But, I have no idea of python scripting. I have very basic knowledge of unix. Can I take this exam?!

    You can take the exam, but it will be unlikely that you will pass. The exam covers attack vectors, methodologies that you need to follow and tools that you probably don't even know exist. It would be best if you register for the course, watch the videos and do the labs and then take the exam. Your operation experience will help but it will not be enough to pass the exam if you don't know how to do scans or simple enumeration.

    Thanks a lot for reply. I will definitely enroll for the course and do all the labs and then take up examination. It would also be helpful to know how many months o preparation we need before I take up exam? I understand that it depends on the phase I learn. Given a fact that I can spend 3 hours a day, Any Idea?

    You could probably do it within 1 month with that pace. It is a hands on course and a hands on exam, that means you will learn more and faster the more time you spend. There was another person here that posted recently that passed fairly quick.

    I just completed the final lab myself actually, took me 3 months to complete, finished all the document slides, the videos and the 12 labs. I was only spending 2 hours every weekend though. My next step is to watch the videos again and do some more practice with the labs. Then I will register for the exam.

    They give you 3 days to complete the exam and you need to amswer 20 questions. Passing score is 75% i think. The exam follows the same structure as the lab questions .

    I wouldn't waste the time with the C|EH. If you are interested in Pentesting and want bang for buck, eJPT is the way to go. You have plenty of other HR friendly certs so that is not needed. You will truly enjoy cutting your teeth in their labs. Not as wide are the labs as they would be with OSCP but certainly worth the money. I see plenty of people who have done the C|EH and not know how to do simple things bc they labbed during the course (self study you need to set up a lab) but with this you are paced through the material fairly well.
    Completed: CISSP, GPEN, eJPT, CSA+, M.S. Information Security
    Current Goal: eCPPT
    Five Year Plan:​ RHCSA, CISM, OSCP, more SANS as they come
    Book/CBT/Study Material:​ Python for Security Professional (Cybrary)
