Re: About to start PWB - Any tips?

Do the labs, and be sure to be fast and prepared about Privilege Escalation.
IMHO it was the most difficult part when I did OSCP.

OSCP is a great certification, and it's difficult also for experienced
pentesters.
You'll have fun. When I did mine (passed on the first try), I've spent
20 hours (you have 24 hours for the exame) with 3 hours of sleeping.

Though but very very nice.
You'll enjoy it.

Cheers

Hey guys I'm about to embark on the Pentesting With Backtrack course
and was after any tips any one can give me.

I'm fairly new to hacking and this will be my first training
experience with it. I'm pretty self-sufficient with Ubuntu and know my
way around Windows okay. Any areas I should be focusing on and
brushing up before receiving the study materials?

What do you recommend for hardware? Should I use a laptop and keep the
same install running with me or will it be fine to move between home
and work while I'm doing it and using a service like Dropbox to store
my files and stuff? How much space should I allow for the BT5
partition?

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Alex,

I'm also getting warm up for OSCP. I am trying to spend some time with
exploits and WITHOUT metasploit/nessus hacks because both aren't of
any use in OSCP labs and exam.
