    Right, Certified Ethical Hacker. I did the course, took the exam and Passed. I think ECSA would be a logical next.
    Nailing Exchange 2007 first (Ordered by my boss:) ).

    Wicked - congrats!

    How was it? I've taken some readiness tests and got around 50% without doing any real studying. The practice tests I took focussed heavily on scanning, enumeration, web-app testing, footprinting, IDS and Wireless hacking - with not so much emphasis on SQL Injection, XSS, physical sec and buffer overflows.

    Would you say that was reasonably representative of the questions you got, or was there focus on an area/areas that the practice tests were lacking in?

    I'm planning on taking a CBT in August (paid for by my work :biggrin) and will probably take the exam at the end of it, so it would be nice to go in prepared - there doesn't seem to be much in the way of official prep guides out there!

    The test is hard. I scored 77% (70 is passing score) Other students in class had a wide knowledge of the hacking tools like nessus and nmap. I did not. My score was the lowest off this class. We all passed. There where some strange questions in the test. You need to be able to read the output from scanning tools. Sometimes the wording of the test is very strange. I had questions where all four answers are correct. The correct choice depends on what your intensions are. Hard to choose then.

    Any tips on that Tinus?
    I studied v4 but never had time to sit for the exam as I was heavily into Cisco certs. Now that my area of work is security auditing and penetration testing i'll be going for CHFI, LPT and probably Defense Architect if I have the will after that.
    I was told v5's passing grade was 80%, is it really 70%? How many questions, how much time is given, can you go back to previous questions?
    I hope i'm not asking too much :oops: Thanks for the help!
