OSCP v. eLearnSecurity: Which is best for a beginner?
I've been making plans to register for OSCP. Been doing research based on their syllabus. The threads here are great. Today, I was talking with a few colleagues who are working on OSCP, and they told me how tough it's been for them. I've also been looking at eLearnSecurity's training. Which one, OSCP or eLearnSecurity, would be better for a relative beginner? I've been working in security for several years but on the administrative/GRC side, and now I have the opportunity to grow my technical skills. I don't want to jump in over my head, especially given the cost of OSCP. Should I start with eLearnSecurity's Penetration Testing Student first and then work on OSCP after that? I really want to learn these skills so I can better serve my agency.
