There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The problem I have -- and the reason I am dropping this to 2 stars -- is the number of mistakes in this book. Whoever did the technical editing on this thing needs to be fired. Or, perhaps the problem is that no one ever did any technical editing?
Many of the issues are in the review questions in the back of each of the chapters. The answers don't match the questions in some cases, and in other cases wrong answers are given. I can point to two such examples in the review question set of the final chapter alone. Questions 3 and 10 are wrong. Book mentions fences should be 8 feet high. That isn't an option for question 3, but you can choose either 10 feet or 6 foot. Logical choice would be 10 feet since it is higher, and thus more secure. Nope -- book tells you it is 6 feet. Question 10 deals with type 2 errors in biometrics. A type 2 error is when a null hypothesis is false but erroneously fails to be rejected. This is also known as false acceptance. The content in the chapter describes it correctly, but the review question tells you that the answer to the question concerning type 2 errors is "false rejection".
I pulled these two errors from the last chapter because that was the last chapter I read and thus was freshest in my mind. There are a ton of other errors like this throughout the book.
Just be careful reading through this thing. Had I not already known 90% of the content, I probably wouldn't been able to spot all of the mistakes. Hopefully this poorly edited book doesn't cause anyone to miss questions on the exam.
Note to future Test Takers:
EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) v8 was updated in OCT 2015 without notice to students who had been studying v8 material, which resulted in massive failures globally. EC Council responded with a 50% discount to retake the exam to those students - plus, the students now had to learn the v9 material despite EC Council's claim that their certifications were no longer carrying a version number. That excuse had nothing to do with the total over haul of the exam updated on OCT 15, 2015 from EC Council's Malaysia corporate office. This unannounced update and careless attitude by EC Council has cost it hundreds of students that are now seeking alternatives to EC Council's CEH, which does not actually teach hacking, just the concepts. Other platforms such as GIAC/SANS and MILE 2 have courses that out perform EC Council's CEH and do teach instructional labs that give student the necessary skills to ethically hack or perform penetration testing. Word of caution, stay away from a non-US company that will only leave you with the impression that you know what you are doing. Instead, go with proven leaders in the IT Security world that are accepted and respected. IT certification communities not even aligned with the above mentioned that are high ranking are even talking about this offline. It all comes down to what your employers wants you to have or will accept.
Checking Archieve.org the update to v9 material wasn't even posted until way after the un-announced update was put in place. A $500 exam lost is something no one can easy stomach, so - I'm posting this warning others of the tactics used by EC Council. To re-take the test, they offer a $150 off the $500 to retake it. Don't hate me for posting this. They did this a hundreds of test takers worldwide. Unprofessional at best.
Also, some of the practice questions are flat out wrong. For example, Chapter 11 asks the difference between a smurf and fraggle attack. The answer should be UDP vs ICMP, but the book says a smurf attack uses TCP. Page 263 clearly states "a smurf attack spoofs the IP address ... and sends numerous ICMP echo request packets." The same chapter has a sample question that shows a wireshark capture. The answer says it's a SYN flood but there's only a single packet in view. Other concepts, such as password salts and hashing, are incorrectly explained.
I would not rely entirely on this book for your study as that would be a dangerous proposition.
