    Default reviewing eJPT 29-07-2017

    Moments ago, I passed the eJPT presented by eLearnSecurity. In an interesting plot twist, I pursued the OSCP before taking the eJPT. Both of which are supposed to be for "new to pentesting" students. I strongly believe that only the eJPT fits that description.

    eJPT analysis:

    Pros:
    1. Clean Layout
    2. Clear Directions
    3. Very concise information
    4. Focused Lab with a clear objective
    5. Very friendly staff and admins!

    Cons:
    1. Initial lab setup (trying to set up the lab for the first time was very annoying and frustrating)
    2. Lab certificates (I understand why they do it, but it's still annoying)
    3. No IRC (they answer questions in the forums, but it might take a while for you to get a reply)
    4. A few of the questions on the final exam where a little vague.


    Exam: I liked the exam, but it had a few vague questions. I knew the answer, but I could argue either way for one or two answers based on the wording. I don't really blame them since writing test questions can be very difficult.

    Overall I'd give this course a 9/10 based on what it's trying to achieve.

    If doing "l337 Hax" is your goal, eJPT would be the starting line.

    I took this course to experience eLearnSecurity's style before dedicating more money to their other courses, and I'm glad I did. I'll definitely take some more in the future.

    Right now, I'm torn between doing another eLearn course or another Off-Sec course. The prices are roughly the same, whichever one has a sale first will probably get my business, lol. That's what happens when you pay for this stuff by yourself.

    Final verdict:

    Definitely pursue eJPT if you are new!

    Glad that you liked it. Congratulations

    eCPPT might have a discount before anyone else for sure. I forget when they do it though.
    Booya!!

    Keep an eye out for when eLearn updates their material and does a presentation. You'll never find a bigger discount than at the launch of a new course.

    Don't be shy about using lab time.

    I was overly cautious about lab time, so I rushed through the modules. I ended up only using 7 hours. If I could run it again, I wouldn't be so worried about watching the clock.

    Also, review and download the lab solutions so you can refer back to them during the test. It'll help you a lot.

    They gave a free barebones pass this past week while they were at BH2017 in Vegas.

    Seriously, follow their Twitter and Facebook. I talked with one of their reps on Facebook and got a free Barebones eJPT from him. That's what lead me to their programs. Now I'm considering dropping thousands of dollars on their courses. If you hang out their Social Media for a few weeks, you'll get free stuff.

    4 course bundles are a great idea. If you want to learn a broad range of subjects, you should look into it.

    I didn't do any update threads for my other courses, but I think I might for this one.

    I'm not sure how long it'll take to get through the course. I'll be able to dedicate some serious time to it though.

    I think the eJPT is the best "entry level" hands-on certificate in the field.

    It truly is the best hands-on certificate for true beginners.

    The OSCP is amazing, but calling it "entry-level" is incorrect, IMO.

    If you are new to the field, and truly want a starting point, take the eJPT. I promise you won't regret it.
