Hi all

I've been a watcher here for some time but now have some to add.
I used the 312-50 ProctorU service and found it to be quite an easy and smooth process - recommend it.

Hope what I'm imparting here does not contradict any agreement ...

Exam preparation
CEH Study Guide - Matt Walker
TotalTester - came with Matt Walkers book
Boson Exam Questions - very similar to Total Tester
Setup VM's and practiced with hping, nmap, various other kali tools.

I already had qualifications CCNA, OCSWP and eCPPT so questions relating to networks, wireless and Web Pen testing were easy.
Recommend reading up on OSSTMM, PCI-DSS, and other methodologies mentioned along the way etc
Know POODLE, FREAK, Heartbleed
Know encryption and cryptography
Know a little scripting Python
Know a little C++

When doing the Boson tests, open the "show answers" and some have hyperlinks / references to texts and documents, worth reading those.

Found that some of the question syntax was a bit confusing - possibly written by someone who's english was a second language
One or two questions there that were a bit "grey" but could not see an option to provide feedback.
Another thing I missed was that I marked 1/2 dozen questions for review but at the end there was no apparent way to review the questions (identify those marked) apart from checking a drop down list - must be blind.

Make sure you read the questions carefully !


1. According to the information provided, it can take 7-10 days for a Certificate to be issued. Is there any other confirmation ? I'd like to show colleagues etc.

2. Do you get to see which questions you answered incorrectly ?

Good luck to anyone attempting this exam in the future.
