Just curious, has anyone on the TE forums tackled the CEHv8 yet? I see that CEHv7 is still available, but I'm going to be sitting the CEHv8 because it's the newest and shiniest. :)

Also, does anyone know if any major changes between v7 and v8, or is it just updated to reflect the most relevant material?

I see the details of the v8 on EC-Councils website are as follows:

So it looks to me like its pretty much identical to v7.

Just curious on peoples thoughts on the v8 exam if they've taken it.

    I believe the addition of the Mobile Chapter is a change. But beyond that I am yet to take the exam. Maybe October.

    There is a new module on hacking mobile devices. Supposedly the items on the CEHv8 have been completely re-written. The CEHv7 exam had 150 questions.

    I've also made a post in this forum that links to a PDF comparing the objectives of the v7 and v8 CEH certs.
