A benchmark guide for keeping networks safe with the Certified Ethical Hacker program
Seasoned authors Ronald Krutz and Russell Dean Vines continue in the tradition of their CISSP security franchise by bringing you this comprehensive guide to the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) program. Serving as a valuable tool for acquiring the necessary knowledge to prepare for and pass the CEH exam, this book offers clear, concise, and easy-to-understand explanations of key ethical hacking topics as well as hundreds of review questions. Krutz and Vines equip you with in-depth coverage of the latest hacking techniques you'll need to know in order to pass the qualifying examinations, and they arm you with both offensive and defensive approaches to help organizations identify vulnerabilities and protect their information systems.
In addition to its technical content, The CEH Prep Guide examines the legal and ethical requirements and ramifications that are associated with ethical hacking, the rationale behind it, relevant technologies and terminology, and the increased professional responsibility that accompanies the CEH certification. You'll get essential information on penetration testing, vulnerability analysis, risk mitigation, countermeasures, and upgrading defenses in an effective and cost-efficient manner. Plus, the knowledge gained from this guide is applicable to commercial, industrial, military, and government organizations. Greatly increasing your chances of success when taking the CEH exam, The CEH Prep Guide also covers:
- Footprinting, scanning, and enumeration

This book is part of my training plan, I also read other books on the subject, and set up a virtual environment to get hands on practice with the many tools the CEH requires knowlege of.
This book seems to be the most organized of the bunch I read, and addresses the test objectives. I'll add to this review after I test.
Just tested this week...scored a 87% and happy with the results. Some areas missing included bluetooth and VOIP.
The material in the book was well written and easy to follow and understand. I found the example test question at the end of each chapter to not be a great representation of the actual exam. The material did present the concepts and theories of ethical hacking in a clear an concise way my guess is the CEH quiz masters have redesigned the test a bit.
I will keep this book as a reference for future activities in my consulting business.
