    Complete Module 1 tonight. I noticed he starts off slowly, but then really ramps it up. The good thing is he iterates over and over again that you delve deeper further into the course. Also, which I liked, was he explained that this was great entry point to the language for which you could explore deeper after completing it. Definitely great so far!

    I started this course a few months back, but had only done "SOME" Python before, and had trouble learning some of the basics.

    I then went through Googles Python Course (https://developers.google.com/edu/python/) which is fantastic for learning Python basics, with some great exercises to help you learn.

    Now jumped back into the SPSE course, and am understanding it a lot easier Also currently in Module 1.

    Yup I have Violent Python, Black Hat Python, and Grey Hat Python for after completing this course (or at least to supplement some of the topics).

    I just finished Module 1, and it was an OK "skim" of Python Basics.
    Module 2 also seemed to be little bits/things, but no real detail into them.

    Module 3 - Just completed the first video, which is creating a TCP server, and connecting to it, and how the socket module works. AWESOME video, great detail, well explained, and some good exercises to get you to learn it all.

    I decided to slow down a little bit and really dive deep into Python. My goal is to truly know the language and effectively make programs as it will be extremely important for work. Thus I am focusing on the basics and will then continue further with the cert. I am thinking I should be able to challenge the cert sometime in March.

    I have been thinking of purchasing access to the videos pretty soon and I have gathered other python materials referenced in this thread so I have to ask...What made you feel like you needed to go elsewhere for the "basics" as opposed to continuing on with the material? Did it feel inadqueate for someone who is knew to python? I am still debating on whether or not I should purchase the material as a "student" or just purchase the videos....

    The course is more the proficient to get you writing scripts in Python don't get me wrong. But in my case, I am looking at writing some pretty complicated stuff so a firmer basis in the Computer Science side is required.

    Haven't read this one but it has good reviews.

    So far so good. I'm about half through the material I would like to complete. Aiming for March to have SPSE and more so a firm grasp on Python

    Seems I'm definitely learning something! Today I needed to write a quick script and was able to do it all from memory. Just had to read IP's from a list, ping them, and print the output to a file. Small, but definitely a good ego booster.

    Hey guys,

    I have not been around posting online much in the past few years

    I'm sure I bought the SPSE course nearly two years ago and I am still working on my python skills. I started with the SPSE and migrated all over the place. I jumped into basically every language for a bit then I found a wicked course on udemy with python scripting and networking which is listed below. I have stared the course below. my python skills have increased and I am writing basic python and doing intermediate challenges. I have been working with some twisted honeypots, and can write my own loops, functions, and classes. I thought I would create a helpfull list of some courses below that are helping me prior to taking the SPSE. Maybe it will help other people. The ones with stars are the most helpful

    Udemy - python tutorial: python programming - build 7 apps **
    udemy - python beyond the basics - object oriented programming **
    Udemy - learn python for data analysis and visulization

    udemy - learn python the hard way

    code academy - python skills challenges ***

    Meetup dot com I have been using to hit up some side project meetups and python groups. ***

    I also got all the books Violent python, black / grey python ect...


    Yes for me the SPSE has been very challenging however I have not given up year. I wrote a book on python and use it as my reference guide. The book is like 500 - 1000 pages.

    Let me know if you guys ever end up writing the exam and good luck!!!!
