So after I passed my CISSP In Feb I wanted to take another Security focused test to progress. I was up in the air Cism, GCIH, CISA, GPEN and thanks to this sub forum I have decied to take my talents to OSCP(lebron james Voice). Im so excited about this i alomst put my degree on hold for this but hopefully I can finish this term and will be starting early 2017. If anyone want to start a study group we can skype or google +.

Any recomendations on books or videos to look up beofre hand will be welcomed.

Im too excited about this i didnt sleep much last night lol I literrally was telling myself screw my bachelors i have a AA and cissp i should just do OSCP.

    Nice! I've got this on my radar for Jan 2017. Agree with all of the resources ITSpectre listed, especially Jollyfrog's thread.

    I myself plan on the following for prep:

    1. Learn Linux at the Linux+ level (reading the book, not taking the test)
    2. Learn Python (starting with Codeacademy, probably will do the SPSE from SecurityTube)
    3. Complete my eLearnSecurity PTPv3 course and eCPPT (hopefully will upgrade to PTPv4 depending on cost or if it's a big enough upgrade)
    4. Complete the Cybrary Ethical Hacking and Advanced Penetration Testing video courses.
    5. Read Georgia Weidman's book: Penetration Testing: A Hands-On Introduction to Hacking
    6. Potentially complete the Metasploit Unleashed course
    7. Potentially attend SANS SEC560 in August (waiting to see if I got accepted to facilitate)
    Have: CISSP, CISM, CISA, CRISC, GCIA, GSEC, CCSP, CCSK, AWS CCP, CEHv8, CHFIv8, ITIL-F, MS Cyber Security - USF, BSBA - UF, MSISA - WGU
    Currently Working On: eJPT, Learning: Linux/CLI, Git, Python, Pentesting
    Next Up:​ eJPT, eCPPTv2, OSCP
    Studying:​ Code Academy (CLI, Git, Python), eLearnSecurity PTSv3

    That sounds good. I really hope to be able to start this in Jan. The director at my work wants to bring red team in-house, so this would go a long way to opening that door for me. I've already talked to him about it and I have a gameplan to get there.

    I might join you in Jan if I managed to complete Linux+ and eWPT this year.

    Envious. I really want to do this cert. It's only the lack of $1150 stopping me at this point.

    Similar sitution, I just recently started learning about how to probably manage my finances. I have honestly ate out 2-3 times in the last several months. I mostly eat pasta, black beans, eggs tofu, peanut butter sandwhiches etc. all so that I can pay off all of my debts/student loans before 2016 is over.

    I wish I could get a refund on the money I spent on CEH back in September 2015 towards OSCP instead... that reminds me I need to pay off my CC for the CISSP exam I took last month.

    Clm, could you please talk more in detail on why you decided on the OSCP? I also recently passed the CISSP and have been looking at CISM, CISA, CCSP and now slowly opening up to OSCP.

    Thanks!
