    If you are really new, take the eJpt course. It's the cheapest and a great introduction to elearn and pentesting in general. Once you've finished it, you'll know what is next.

    The most accepted path on this forum is ejpt>eccpt>oscp.

    C programming is only mentioned in the exam but not tested.

    Everyone else's advice is good. I would just recommend to reverse that order and learn Linux>Bash>Python.

    Start with eJPT, its a great starter course but it's a hands on tools based course where you will answer questions. The exam is not hard if you've studied and did the labs.

    The eCPPT course is a different story. It'll help if you know some C/C++, PHP and Ruby. Although they cover Ruby in the course.
    The test requires a written report, which they provide a sample of during the course.

    Both exams have time limits.
    Booya!!

    I'm taking eWAPT and it's difficult because the documentation does not reflect what you need to know for the challenges.

    Funny thing is the OSCP is actually considered a beginner pentesting certification. Don't skip any sections of the course, it's there for a reason. You also put the web app courses in that list, I'd suggest learning JavaScript, PHP and other web languages. It'll help you a lot in the long run.

    Thanks to everyone.
    So, as python is already going on and learned some basics beside classes/oops and defactors
    Now as suggestions i will start soon learning linux then bash.
    For linux is LPIC 1&2 is better or Comptia Linux+ ? Because free videos on both available

    About web app programming,I already know PHP(basics),JS(basics),MySQL(basics),HTML,CSS,
    Once i made vulnerable lab related to sql injection to practice though that website where i coded that lab and hosted there closed in 2014
    I already know website development.
    Thanks
