My OSCP Diary

Introduction


Penetration with Kali (PWK) was always a penetration testing course I wanted to complete but because of my workload and my general lack of knowledge, I did not feel ready to begin.


Fast forward a couple of months, I have a fair bit of spare time so I obtained the eLearning Junior Penetration Testing certification (review) to prepare myself for the PWK course. As soon as I passed my exam, I registered for the PWK course and received my start date which was April 23rd 2017.


Background
I completed my degree in Computer Science at the University of Sydney in December 2016 so I am fairly comfortable with programming.
The only preparation I have done is the eLearning PTS course and also read about half of the book Violent Python.


Diary


This diary will contain continuous progress updates as I work through the course and will also be used to post the resources that I found valuable as I progress.


April 23rd 2017
- Received PDF and video package at 11:00am.
- The first week will be slow since the PDF is huge and there are so many videos to get through.


I will be updating this post (and on my website) over the coming few months.
I am aiming to complete by June.

    I purchased 90 days. I was aiming to finish in 60 days but reading the reviews from others, it doesn't look likely and I wanted to go with the safe route :)

    I also started on April 23rd, but today isms first day of study. I will take it easy and aim to finish by the end of June. I don't intend to give myself headache over this. My belief is that if you take time to understand the underlying principles, then it should not be too difficult.
