Hi stormshade69,

I've been a pentester for about two years. I can honestly say that I have never heard of the CPTE course before seeing your link. That doesn't mean it's no good, just that I have no idea about it. C|EH is a different matter. This is quite common. Your sig says you're wondering about OSCP. This is great and I'll be doing the course as soon as possible. C|EH = basics really, think Network+. OSCP = Intermediate (IMHO), Think CCNP.

Hope this is in time for you! Anyone else care to comment?

HI

C|EH 7 has a good curricullum. Post C|EH the only certification I loved is CHFI.

Regred the delayed response.

Cheers!

OSCP is not recognised too well outside the Pen Testing network. You get that certification you stick to pen testing for atleast 3-5 years. CEH of CHFIs are regarded as Securlty consultatnts.

My perspective I could be wrong.

I am in industry since many years and MIle2 certifications are well known in industry and individuals and professionals are rapidly moving towards these certifications. CPTE and other Mile2 certifications have less marketing thats why people here are not aware of them. i have both CEH and CPTE certification and from learning point of view CPTE is much better than CEH, and to be very honest i dont know about the OSCP.

I would suggest you to study from Mile2 CBTz, which i concerned is the best source of exam preparation and also you can buy newly launched CPTE guide book from the following link :
http://mile2.com/mil...1&category_id=9
This covers all CPTE topics and very helpful for exam.
All the best

Hi, i am a CPTE. I prepared for the exam using Mile2 course material. The exam is not easy to pass too. there are 100 questions covering all the topics and all those are well covered in the videos. I also recommend to go for the training if any one can afford and practice the various tools and techniques used in pentesting. this way you can bypass wastage of time looking for the resources.
