CEH Exam Scheduled!

Well I've been doing some solid studying and scheduled the exam for next Thursday at 1 pm. Little information for those who are going the self-study route, when they send you the ID number you put it in the voucher section if your using Vue. I thought I had to enter it in the beginning and had to go back and forth with Vue in e-mail. Finally, did a chat with them and was told it was a voucher that had to be entered (had a Homer moment). I was approved for self-study through educational experience (thread is here on that: http://www.techexams.net/forums/ec-council-ceh-chfi/38422-put-ceh-waiver.html ). Used/using the following materials:

CEH Exam Prep 312-50 by Michael Greg - Completed
CEH CBT Nuggets - Completed (bought the 1 month streaming account)
Career Academy - Incomplete (found this to be crap so I'm not continuing it, gave it back to my friend)
Official Certified Ethical Hacker Review Guide by Kimberly Graves - Starting today
Anti-Hacker Toolkit - Reviewing for tools
Boson ExamSim - $50 Bucks, will use on Monday
These Forums
Ethical Hacket.Net Forums

Hopefully, will have a passed on here next week (if I don't have to push it back due to getting a job!)

    Congratulations on getting the referral to take this exam. I hope you pass it , and come back to tell us how it was. I passed my Security+ today with an 844. Tomorrow I'm going to see the IT Director to sign off for me. I've only been here seven months but worked three years as Technology Director for a small public school district when I was fresh out of college.
    Working On:
    CIW Database Specialist 1D0-541 90%
    CIW Server Administrator 5%

    Nice score on Security+! I am almost positive they would accept you for a waiver with experience and some education. I'll let you all know how it goes! I'm excited, but a little wary of the 150 questions....

    I am thinking of switching my exam date to Tuesday. I have a second interview for a security position that will involve some pen-testing and I believe this could help me. Interview is on Wednesday, will finish the official guide tonight then it is a matter of doing questions to prepare to the basic knowledge. Then review some tools! I'll know on Sunday if that is what I am going to do...

    Good luck mate, I plan to go down the same route sometime.

    Well the worse case scenario occurred. Need a 70% to pass and I got a 69%! I'll say that I probably should have taken another week or two to really look at all the stuff required (which is what I will be doing now). But I will also say that there were quite a few questions that weren't covered in any of the material that I used. But oh well, second attempt in a couple of weeks...

    Ouch! Sorry to hear about that icon_sad.gif

    What sort of material caught you off guard (if you can say without violating the NDA)?
  • the_Grinchthe_Grinch ■■■■■■■■■■ Posts: 4,154Member ■■■■■■■■■■
    Off hand I'm not a 100% sure that I could say what the material is so I'll stay mum on that...but if/when you take it you'll see what I am talking about.

    You were really close, though! You can knock it out with another attempt, for sure.

    Yeah, now at the very least I now have an idea of what I need to do and what is expected. I will say I didn't expect the depth some of the questions went into...

    I'd be willing to bet that you're good now that you've taken it, but if you have any questions or there's anything I can help you with, feel free to post or PM me.

    I flipped through Kevin Mitnick's two books and they look really interesting and educational. If you haven't checked those out, you might want to when you get a chance. While it's not full of information for the CEH, it did have some gems that I recognized were on the exam.
