Passed eJPT Today!

I finally got off my a** and took the cert. :smile: I started the process yesterday afternoon and finished today with a score of 100%.

Before I started the exam, I finished all the modules in the course except for the web application modules. That was a very, VERY bad idea. Pro tip for you guys: Don't skip the web app modules. I am pretty comfortable with the network attack tools and system attack tools, but I was struggling with the web attack tools during the exam. I'm absolutely disgusted at how bad I am at web app pen testing and I'll most likely enroll in eWPT in the future. Also, for some reason I thought that you had to write a report for this exam, so I wasted a few hours on writing the report. I don't know where I got that idea from.

Some tips:
Make sure you have a reliable network connection. I connected to the exam environment using an unreliable wireless connection and my connection dropped more than 3 times during the exam. Why didn't I use a reliable Ethernet connection? Because I don't have one long enough to reach the couch. :D
Make sure you do all the labs

What's Next?
Virtual Hacking Labs: I will be working on rooting those 38 boxes until my OSCP start date. My start date for the OSCP is on March 3, but I might push it back a month depending on where I'm at in VHL. Also, I'm still (lightly) studying for the CSX-P.

    Congrats on the pass!!! I actually just finished the PTSv3 course myself and am going over the labs again in prep for the exam. Curious, did you have all of the techniques from the labs memorized or did you have to do a ton of referencing for the exam? I did make a reference sheet with all of the various commands from the different modules.

    Excellent work! Congrats!

    For mine, I kept all of my training material and other reference docs available on my laptop, which I have networked to my desktop for easy access. There were times when I had to reference the training videos, too.

    For reference, I only did 3/12 of the labs and still have ~53/60 hours left. I think that if you do all the labs twice that you'd be golden. The biggest thing to focus on is knowing what tool to use in what situation. I didn't do the web attack section at all before starting. Sometimes you just have to jump in and do it. I think that you'll do fine, especially with the certs and experience that you have.

    Congrats, I passed mine Sunday too. I had network issues too, lol and I also couldn't get an ethernet cord to where I was working on my exam.
