Passed CEH

I've seen these forums for years, I would come here to gauge how others said about how hard or easy the test is.

Well I passed in October. I've been "studying" on and off for about a year. I took the bootcamp just to "be sure" and maybe fill in some gaps that I thought I had, but honestly I don't think I would have had to. I got 84 on the test, but would have probably got about 77-80 without taking the bootcamp. They did have a few questions about Shellshock and Heartbleed, which doing the labs in the bootcamp helped on that. As well as they had a few questions about Linux's firewall program and crafting packets with hping.

Other than that, it was basically Security+ stuff.

So I wouldn't say it's that hard, if you know your Sec+ stuff, I think you could get 70 easy.

Anyway, that's my take.

    Good to know, I am taking the Security+ mid November and going to take the CEH maybe January after MCSA. Debating if I want to do Linux+ first or not.
