    Default OSCP Journey :D

    Hi Guys, I began my OSCP journey yesterday.

    I'll post here about my feelings towards this cert.

    Brief background on me: Been in IT for 2YRS age 25. Currently a Sys Admin in Healthcare.
    Reason for taking this challenge is that the next step in my career is to be on a "Red Team" and of course IT security intrigues the hell out of me like many of you.

    Yesterday: I studied/read the pdf and watched some videos for about two hours.

    I'm not a linux expert by any means and did some light prep work towards learning the OS before undertaking this journey.

    I am ready to TRY HARDER. Actually, already have been

    I'll update this every few days, right now I'm still delving into Netcat. Oh, and I purchased 60days of lab time... currently going thru a divorce, and single so I shouldn't have time issues putting in a minimum of 30 hours a week towards this (hopefully more).

    Good luck! Lots of people looking at this track/cert lately - and for good reason.

    Thanks much YFZblu!

    Already feel that it's the best investment in education that I've ever made. I'm at video 50, following along/ reading the PDF of course....

    So far, 13.5 Hours in... The more you learn the more the mind wanders with the possibilities.

    Tomorrow, I plan on watching an extra Bash Scripting video. I'll post that link here later for those interested. Definitely something that you should consider watching before attempting the course.

    I enjoyed the OSCP cert. The worst part of it for me was the reporting lol... Document, Document, Document.
