I finally passed the CEH.


Study materials used:

--Professor Messer's Nmap Secrets -- By far the best learning material for TCP/IP and NMAP.. icon_sad.gif It's no longer available i happened to get it before he no longer offered it. I've provided a link below for the course enjoy.

*** link to professor messer's nmap secrets is below****

--Pearson's Certified Ethical Hacker Cert Guide
--Matt Walkers Certified Ethical Hacker: Exam Guide (AIO) both 1st and 2nd editions
--Sybex Certified Ethical Hacker Version 8 Study Guide
--Android Eccouncil CEH app -- Really the best testing engine for CEH over BOSON. I used BOSON for Sec+ was fantastic but I've found that the official Eccouncil app is better.
--Official Ecccouncil Study Material & Course-- took a $3500 laughable (thank god I used my MGIBill) 5-day boot camp at New Horizon Testing Centers in Charlotte, NC (I don't recommend this unless you are a very well seasoned IT security professional) --> meaning you should already know the material. The boot camp is extremely fast paced.

About Exam:
Use process of elimination and when in doubt go with your gut feeling.

To make folks feel better about what type of questions they ask in regards to tools: I've taken the exam twice and this is the layout:

Nmap, Snort, Wireshark, are the main in depth tools! You must know them very well. The rest is just knowing what tool is for which thingy ma bop..

For example Disclaimer **this is not a question on the exam its just a similar**

Engineer A has been asked to perform a test of a web application for a company. Which tool is best used for web application testing?

A.) nessus
B.) nmap
C.) cain
D.) TCP over DNS
C.) nikto


Good luck! Merry Christmas! -- Too all you politically correct folks out there -- Happy Holidays!
