Good afternoon Tech peeps,

As you probably can tell, I don't post often. Matter of fact this is my first post ever on this site. I've kind of been like most, just come here to read and take notes from the wise/experienced. But today marks the day I stop all the foolery and engage myself a bit more than the usual. Now on to what I actually had to say, I scheduled my exam today for the C|EH v8. Have been putting this off for sometime now but finally got the eligibility application approved and my pockets burned lol (positive investment nonetheless). Exam set for good ol' Monday of the 19th this month and here is the study material that I have been using so far:

1. CEH AIO 2nd Edition by Matt Walker-Easy to read and great material coverage in my opinion.
2. Official Course Material-The wife is also taking it so we are kind of battling back and forth to see which material prevailsicon_rolleyes.gif
3. Flash cards-Custom some from that Quizlet site as well
4. Nmap Cookbook-Easy to read, informative and straight to the point

So as I prepare myself for my exam, you've probably heard this multiple times but what else would you folks recommend? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all for you time and support.

    The Boson Practice Tests are great. I like to use practice tests as I near the end of my studying. They tend to point out gaps in my knowledge that I need to cover.

    Most definitely appreciated. I looked into it when I first started studying but didn't get around to actually purchasing it.

    CBT Nuggets is always a good option. The series on v8 does a pretty darn good job.

    Cybrary.IT has a free pen testing / ethical hacking course that is a good refresher right before the exam.

    TechGuru80, thank you. I used CBT Nuggets for another exam so I guess I will add that to the arsenal as well.

    Good luck! I have scheduled my exam for Oct 24th. I have the CEH Cert Guide by Michael Gregg, the CBT Nuggets with James Conrad, and various practice exams I could find online. I don't want to shell out $99 for boson at this point in time after laying down $600. So let's see what happens lol. Hoping to read about your pass!

    danny069, good luck to you as well. That was kind of my mind set as well for the Boson material. I downloaded the demo questions but that's about it. But like you said, we will see what happens. See you on the other side....lol

    No go on the exam today. Was tested on the v9 items within the first question. Guess that's how it works.
