eCPPT - How Much Coding Knowledge Is Required?

Hello Everyone,

I plan to start studying for the eCPPT on March 1. The only thing that is making me worried is that I have not done any coding since college which was over 10 years ago, Java, C++ and VB. However, I have made/modified many command line and powershell scripts over the years. The pre-requisites states:

- Reading and understanding C, ASM, Python, PHP code will help although not mandatory.
- No development skills required.

How much coding do I really need to know for the eCPPT material and exam? I am a really slow learner when it comes to coding so I would rather focus few weeks on just coding if necessary before jumping in on the material. I did do the eJPT and flew through it quite effortlessly, not sure if eCPPT is setup in a similar way?

Love to hear input from those that have the cert or took the course please.

    It most useful for the buffer overflow section. You really don't need to be a coder to do it. The scripting will definitley help yoy but this course is definitley entry level and rather basic once you get things.
