I am trying to beef up my understanding of web application security and wondered if anyone has taken training from PluralSight? I am thinking of trying the 10 day trial offer and taking this course:

    Through the forum, I found out you can get 90 days free when you sign up for Visual Studio Dev Essentials. I am still interested if anyone has take the above course.

    I have. It's a decent course to get a basic understanding of the covered subjects. If you're just getting started with WebSec and you're looking for a good introduction - take the course, but then move on to more specialized courses about the subjects relevant to you.

    If you already know enough about some of the subjects to explain/exploit them on your own, skip that part. You're probably not going to learn anything new.

    Let's say you know what SQL Injection is and have played around with queries, but not much more - skip the SQL Injection chapter and watch https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/ethical-hacking-sql-injection instead.

    Liidolade,

    Thanks for the input! I am currently reading The We Application Hacker's Handbook v2 which at times can be difficult to understand due to my lack of web development experience. Hopefully this supplemental training can fill some of the gaps.

    Thanks again!

    I took the SQL injection course by Troy Hunt and it was quite good. I took the time to setup VS, IIS, SQL Server and the provided application files. I really did learn a lot and can vouch for it. Based on this course i would recommend the ethical hacking series and in general any of the courses taught by Troy Hunt. They have courses for vary experience levels and topics in WebSec.
