Advanced Web App Penetration Testing Training(SEC642) VS Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation(AWAE)
What are peoples experience with SEC642 and AWAE. Which is considered the most advanced, the most cutting egde, how is the study material, how well known are the two?
I have taken SANS courses and GIAC certs before - I like there courses, and the Exams are ok. But i enjoy the OSCP hands on exam approach allot more because it felt like i had to use all the knowledge i learned. However the SANS course and teachers where bar none, the best security education experience i have tried - ofcourse it also costs allot more to take a SANS course.
I am also interested in knowing if there are any really solid MOOC / eLearning options in this space on coursera or other elearning* / MOOC platforms that people can recommend.
*I have taken and the WAPT and eWAPT from ELS already

I agree that my wording might be a little off here. I do agree that some material is fundamental and sometimes it makes sense to learn eventhough its old. However there are other techniques or technologies that can be outdated and more or less useless to learn at this point in time and that in certain course material is still present. I haven taken about 12 digital security courses and certifications, and i have found that there can be a big difference in how current and usefull the materiale is (Syllabus overview does not always reveal this).
