eLearnSecurity Exploit Developer Student - New Course

Looks like eLS is pumping out another new offering soon. They're calling it Student, which makes it sound like it'll be a shorter, easier course, similar to PTS. Guess we'll see in a few weeks at the launch.

    I am completely soured on els. In May, they were acquired by INE, and since that time, Armando and Jens have left.  This is not the company of old.  Years ago, great reviews and an excellent product. Based on their past few courses, their quality and support has diminished greatly. 

    Before, the quality had a chance to be worthwhile. Now with no accountability, we get courses like IHRPv1  

    Using a phrase from their Digital Forensics course (Filesystem Analysis-Module 5, p312) What they now offer is frugal manure.

    Student level or not. I suggest keeping our expectations as low as possible, so when they fail to meet that, it won't hurt so bad.

    Oh snap! I didn’t know they were acquired by INE and that Armando was gone. I hope the course is good and not overpriced. Guess we’ll see.

    I have access to INE via my employer, but I haven't seen any eLS courses appear yet. Maybe that content a separate licensing deal that needs to be made.

    And Frugal Manure is a great gaming handle. Claim it while you can still be the first to own it! :D

    Sounds more like a racehorse name. "Coming around the back, it's Frugal Manure for the win!"

    I am more of an elearn realist.. LOL

    Unfortunately, I easily spot their glaring flaws, and hope that they improve. But they don't, they only get worse.

    Yoba, they are one of the best trainers for the network field. Their labs were awesome for CCNP/CCIE studies. As you know, studying for those certs require lots of equipment. I am sure you can virtualize many of these labs, but INE has you covered. Many will have their opinions about INE but they have always been one of the main players for Cisco workbooks and labs. 

    I trust INE in moving eLearnSecurity to the next level in their business model. 

    INE = Strong presence and Experience.

    OMG!!! 
    Another incomplete course. What a f-up it was when they conned people into getting the IHRPv1 course....
    I am not impressed.
    Oh wait... it is windows XP. Now I am impressed. More advanced than I expected...

    LOL

    Real World?? How many XP machines are out there in the wild??
