    In my case I read one module in the lab manual, then I watch the video, after those I do the exercises. It is a little slow but the video and the lab manual have some differences between them.

    I noticed that also. Was wondering about it hence my question, if there was a certain order to the madness.

    I think the order they set up is the right one. Yesterday I could make the smtp exercise, it took me 4 days, around 12 hours to complete it, but I did, good...... Try Harder.

    @impelse: There's quite a bit to be done in the labs, so I recommend not spending too much time on the scripts. The lab exercises are 'supplemental', but they are not required.

    @Psyco32: I went through the entire lab guide, took notes and then watched all videos. I did this 2-3 times to ensure I had all concepts down before jumping into the lab network. I've seen other people doing it module by module, but you'll soon notice chapters 1-6 are not that advanced and should be sort of a 'review' to experienced InfoSec Pros.

    On a different note, I shall be posting my exam review by the end of the week

    Maybe I am doing something wrong. Yes in my case I am doing module by module. My question at what moment you begin to really attack all the machines, at the end of the lab manual or the manual begin to tell what to begin to attack?

    @impelse: I would recommend going over the entire lab manual and then watching the videos. Make sure you are comfortable with all modules starting from Module 6 onwards. Also, make sure you are comfortable doing enumeration, using netcat and writing bash scripts.

    There is quite a bit of material not covered by the lab guide / videos, so additional research is required. You'll often find yourself with unprivileged access, so you need to be comfortable escalating on both, Windows and Linux.

    Are you on IRC? If so, what is your nick / handle?

    IPchain, I noticed that you have both OSWP and OSCP. First off...congratulations. Some serious ninja skills sir. I am planning on starting the offensive security series after I knock out CISSP (scheduled for bootcamp review and test in August). Which would you recommend taking first? I realize they address completely different security topics. But if OSWP is less demanding then OSCP, I'd probably prefer to start there. Thanks for the insight.

    Hi all,
    I would like to register for this course next week, but first of all I would like to ask few questions all off you experienced. How much time have you devoted to study troughout the course in average daily etc and how much was it aproximately altogether? I finish at my current job on next friday and would lake to take longer vacation about few months which I would like to spend with extending my knowledges between I will look for another job. Do you thing that is possible finish the course in lets say one month full-time?
    I do use unix-like systems on regular basis and worked as an IT administrator for certain ISP in the past. Also have little bit of knowledge about programming and scripting in python, bash etc.

    Thank you for your advices that comes on your mind and you would share with me

    In my case I am still working with modifying exploits in the lab (I did not finish yet the lab) and it's been around 45 days, some of them nothing, others from 2 to 4 hours (I am working with Family), if you are single and have all the time and good knowledge like you said probably you will able to finish in one month, but remember you want to be GOOD in this feel, so take your time....

    Yes, I would like to dedicate most of the time, like 8 hours a day or more to it. This stuff is my hobby so not a big deal, but even though I think everybody needs a break even from things he likes . It might help me to get a better job or at least salary so why don't try it?

    How would you describe your time occupation, meaning how much time you spend with studying and how much with actual "hand-on" job during the course? And do you think you would learn more if you have more time to spend in the labs even after you were done or you actually depleted course potential?

    It's ok.

    When you are studying (lab/video) you need to do the exercises, in that moment you are practicing, for example they ask you to scan all the network and find which tcp/udp are open ( you learn to create your own scripts to save the info), in my case I did not have any knowledge of scripts or using grep but I learnt it and I begin to use it more often. Also in another lab they will ask you to enumerate if smtp is vulnerablele to verification, now you begin to look for smtp port open, step by step you begin to build up the skills, at the end you begin to have fun try to hack all the machines.....

    You will not feel the time, you will drill it. Take it, I procrastinated too much time this training.

    Ok, so I go for my registration next week and see what is gonna happen. Hope it is at least as good as you guys declare it is cause it is quite expensive but I think it is worth the money. Will share my experiences with you.

    Relatively speaking...it is not expensive at all. In fact, its one of the cheapest security certification training programs you can find. Plus reputation has it, the lab environment is exponentially better than most other training programs. I spent $1899 on a CEH certification training program and the labs were terrible. And I just spent $3899 on my CISSP bootcamp...for 4 days of content. I haven't taken OSCP (I plan to after CISSP in August) but I can already tell you that it is well worth the money.

    Default Student actively working on OSCP

    Hi all,
    I decide to post this here rather than create a new thread. Let me know if you want me to move this to it's own thread!

    I bought the PwB material and lab access in July 2011, but did not get started for work reasons. Work isn't a problem anymore and I've started again and I will keep working on this - I won't quit this time!!! SO far:
    * I have watched all the videos once and realised how much there is to it! So changed my approoach
    * I spent 2 weeks watching cbtnuggets (24hr access) on Linux to understand more about the file system, privileges and bash scripting
    * This worked and I feel confident about the entry level modules 1 to 5
    * I am trying to work through Module 6 - Buffer Overflows. Again I was in over my head, so I've spent a week on securitytube dot net watching Viveks ASM Primer and I feel better on this topic
    * I think I'm going to have to keep doing this on lots of topics ... Python for example
    * I plan on going through the lab workbook and videos in more detail before buying a chunk of lab time

    I am an experienced Network Engineer 8 yrs - CCNP, CCSP and am trying to move into Cyber-Security, specifically pen-testing. I know Networks, Firewalls and VPN's. I also know IDS/IPS's. It feels a bit strange to be starting again ... here's my question:

    Anyone want to study together - we can motivate and make sure our heads don't drop.

    I know I have lots to learn. Cheers

    J
