Does The Job
on February 19, 2009
I just got back from my exam and passed with an 850 (out of 900 I believe). I used no other study materials other than these books and CDs, although I had some prior knowledge in the area of penetration testing (though no job experience).
My approach was this:
Read each chapter of the study guide. Do the 10 questions at the end of the chapter. If there are areas you seem to be having trouble with, go back and review them.
Read the entire review guide.
Take the assessment tests on the CDs and review weak areas until you are getting scores in the 90s.
Right before the exam, read all the "exam objectives" in the review guide and make sure you understand them (takes a little over an hour).
I never opened the Street Smarts book.
