    Sounds like a great plan! Good luck!

    Yep! I'll give myself a week break, then I'll get onto the AWAE. I don't think I'm at that level if I'm honest, but I'll give it a whirl anyway! :D

    That is awesome! Hopefully I clear IHRP next Friday so that I can jump into WAPT right after. 

    By the way are you jumping back on AWAE now? Had to ask :smile:

    Report has now been submitted! I'll be sure to update this thread once I get the results. Thanks everyone for following along - apologies I took 5 months with this one due to personal issues. Hopefully I get some good news and can write-up a little course review.

    If you think about it, within 5 months you cleared eWPT and had some time working on AWAE. That is impressive already, you may look back 4-5 months from now with OSWE cleared all within 1 year. From Dec to Dec, its going to be an awesome year for you!

    @si20 Were you able to complete the HTML5 challenge lab?  It was the only one I was never able to complete.   I still have like 40+ hours of lab time left.  I think I may try to tackle it again maybe this weekend of next.  I really want to say I was able to complete everything 100% before I enroll in the WAPTX course.

    Were you the guy I spoke to on LI about that lab? I remember saying it was the most difficult. I did complete it in the end - although mostly because the solution was practically given away in the eLearn forums. I don't think I'd have had the javascript knowledge to carry it out. That's my next task over the coming year or so - I will start coding in html, php, javascript - even to get an entry level understanding. It has been years since I touched the coding side of things, but the ethical hacking certs all require at least a bit of scripting/dev knowledge.

    Thanks! (Thanks iBrokeIT too).

    Truth be told, I'd lost the mindset for these sorts of exams. And what with lots of stuff happening in my personal life it has been difficult. But I'm motivated again! Having free time and spending it wisely is key. Onwards and upwards as they say!

    Hopefully the results come in this week. And next weekend I begin the AWAE (again).

    Hey @si20 what are you initial impressions between WAPTv3 and AWAE, are they completely different? Any similarities, granted AWAE is more advanced but going through both training any similarities? do you think WAPTv3 will help you understand AWAE any better?

    Hey! First impressions were that they were totally different. With eWAPT it teaches more commonly found attacks such as XSS, SQLi, Xpath etc whereas AWAE teaches XSS but then wants you to essentially reverse engineer a program, find XSS and create a script/PoC to exploit it.

    I think when my AWAE resumes I'll only have around 50 days left on it. Maybe less. I'll be able to give a better idea about it in the coming weeks. I truly don't expect to pass it. I've never reversed software before and never created PoCs. But I'll have a much better idea soon and I'll make sure to do an AWAE journey like I did with WAPT, although I'll keep it more regular rather than take a hiatus in the middle of it lol !

    WAPT officially passed! I take back what I said about a potentially long marking time. 4 working days. Not too bad!

    So that's it for this journey. Next will be the AWAE journey which starts Sunday. I'll update Sunday evening (UK time).

    Have any interest in doing the WAPTX in the near future?   I'm torn between WAPTX and AWAE, so I'm looking forward to reading your AWAE journey.

    I am tempted to do the WAPTx next year. I need to have a look at how beneficial the course material is for what I do. Once the AWAE is over, I'll take a good look at the syllabus and see whether it looks like something I should try.
