Passed CEH

I passed CEH with an 88% in about 45 mins a few days ago. Wasn't terribly difficult -- most of it was like another level of Security+ except with Nmap and other security tools.

I'm currently an incident response analyst for a government contractor and CEH was required for my job.

Next on the list is to get my employer to pay for my master's degree (this autumn or next spring) and take a CCNA boot camp offered though a local community college (this summer). I also plan on learning Python because I would like to sit for OSCP in a year or so and I have read that scripting skills are quite useful....

Best of luck to those studying.

    Congrats testing010101! I'm doing CEH and CHFI this 6 months for school. What materials did you use to pass? How long did you have to study for?

    Hey, Greater.

    I studied off and on for several months. There were some new concepts for me since I only graduated from college in May 2014 and don't have a significant amount of experience.

    I used Matt Walker's all-in-one guide, flash cards from Quizlet, and CBT Nuggets videos. I didn't bother to use any of the security tools mentioned in Matt's book in a VM.

    Dear Candidate,

    Is that what people receive before being asked to do a second exam (Audit exam)?
    Seems like they just trying to verify the 2 years experience or attending a training center.

    You said you used Quizlet. Googling Quizlet exam **** does show they have some exam **** questions on there.
    Maybe you answered a question correctly they had flagged.
