    Thanks, I tried my best to give reasonable hints without spoiling anything. A lot of folks had the same problems in the exam environment according to the forums and I wanted to give a helping hand.

    Congrats on the pass @ottucsak :). Started my ptpv5. Just a quick question, do I need to try out few HTb or vulnshub box before PTP exam or just stick with the study material, practice their labs and give exam.

    The labs should be plenty. There are no twists and hardenings in the exam unlike OSCP, plus you have 7 days, which should be more than enough! Read the exam guide carefully, focus on the goals and you will ace it.
