I supplemented my self-study by watching the CEH track. I bought the Certified Ethical Hacker All-in-One Exam Guide before I realized that the course was following Sean's book. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the series and passed the exam with flying colors. Thanks to Sean and Mike and keep up the good work.
Passed CEH exam yesterday 5/8/15
Great news! Many congratulations to you. Are ther any other self-study resources that you felt enabled you to be successful or would you say Sean's book and the CEH course here were sufficient?
I used a combination of self-study and on-the-job experience. I've been working in IT professionally for almost 20 years and a hobbyist for nearly 30. The CEH requirement that a candidate must show two years of work experience in a security related field is warranted. I've used and still use many of the tools as a white hat blue team defender.
