PWK and OSCP: pointers and advise

2017-05-07 14:38:00

It's traditional to do a huge writeup after finishing the OSCP certification, but I'm not going to. People such as Dan Helton and Mike Czumak have done great jobs outlining the whole process of the course, the exercises, the labs and the exam. So I suggest you go and read their reviews. :)

In the mean time, here are the few things I would suggest to anyone undertaking PWK+OSCP. 

The day after finishing the exam was one of elation: I couldn't be more happier. But not a day later, I'm already missing the grueling work! I want to go back to the labs, to finish the remaining 30+ servers I hadn't cracked yet. I even want to retake the exam, to get more challenges! 

For now, my plan is as follows:

  1. First, I'm going to study to upgrade my RHCSA and RHCE to RHEL7.
  2. When I'm between assignments again, I will invest in more PWK labtime to practice with more target hosts. 
  3. Once I have finished the labs I will continue my journey with OffSec's CTP (Cracking The Perimeter) course and the OCSE exam. 

Back in college, René was right: "That guy just doesn't know the meaning of the word 'relaxation'." tags: , ,
