Zero to OSCP in 292 days

I finally did it, it took 292 days over 4 attempts. I probably could have done it faster if i had some starting experience, background, or education in development, web, or networking. My path was eJPT > eCPPT > OSCP. I'm going to try to write a blog post about it in the near future so i'll post it here. Let me know if you guys have any questions.

    GJ Man. Without any IT background it's very impressive. Respect for you :)

    I myself had IT background and eaven working in that area, but just done eJPT as a prep and now I am struggling in OSCP...

    Also looking forward to read about your journey.

    That's amazing stuff. I was planning to take the exact same path as I have no prior pen test background. Really keen to read your write up!
