Just a quick question for anyone that has taken the CEH or any 
offensive security certifications recently. How long did it take you 
to study the material and be ready for the tests?


I've done CEH v7 recently. It took me 4 -6 weeks to go through the books and labs. But seriously CEH is just CRAP. 
It's not what it's depicted by ec-council. EC-Council has just taken advantage of security risks after 9/11. Their 
website has only one thing good in it and that's big 3d shiny icons. Their membre forums are barren (36 total posts 
in the most active sub-forum) even member area has frequent broken links :(.

I don't know why the hell it has gained popularity. OSCP is 1000 times better then CEH. If you are lookign for real 
life skills then go for OffSec trainings instead of EC-Council otherwise go for ISC2 or ISSACA if you are more 
interested in policies and paper work.

I feel bad for the money wasted over CEH. I should have paid for OSCP.
