I passed the CEHv7 certification test through self-study using only this book as a study guide.

Note that I have *a lot* of InfoSec experience--including CISSP and OSCP certifications--but in my opinion, mastery of the material in this book, including the concepts covered in the end-of-chapter questions and ~ 150 sample test questions on the included MasterExam test, *should* allow you to pass the test.

The book is well-written and concise considering the breadth of material the CEHv7 covers.

I recommend this book for anyone pursuing their CEHv7 certification.

I'll give 5 stars to the first edition for CEHv7 but 4 stars for CEHv8 on 2nd Edition, only because the exam changed gears.
I've taken both, and both editions are "on target" for v7. In v8, however, I passed again, having one of the "several timed sections on one topic" version of the exam, rather than all questions in one sitting version of exam. You do still need to know the major tools listed: how to use, expected results and how to interpret results.
The reason I drop the 2nd edition to 4 stars (I wish I could give 4.5) is because:
- I did not expect and got blindsided by almost 20% of the exam hitting on PKI/digital certificates/identity management. I will suggest an expansion on PKI, et al to a full chapter. In the meantime, please find a supplemental source to study these before you take your exam.
- There were also a few (<5) questions on a specific "free" testing methodology that self-promotes 6 of its own certifications and related training programs (which of course cost money), and which article Wikipedia yanked in 2011 for spammy self-promotion. I do hope that this addition to v8 gets reconsidered and removed from future versions of the CEH by the EC|Council. I've only seen 2 pages or so on this in two recent books, hardly drawing your attention to it, and not in depth.
- Web security questions require more actual knowledge of securing a web page, as one would obtain from the OWASP project pages, and "hands-on" practice doing so. Please also do supplemental study with OWASP materials.
- There was also one chapter area that was surprising completely missing on my v8 exam.
- Finally, there were no PowerPoint pictures on the exam (a distractor in v7 exam), and more "soft" questions without code samples.

As someone who has studied for (and passed) more than a dozen IT certifications in the past 4 years, I can say one thing with confidence: this is absolutely the best, most engaging certification study guide that I've ever read. It's neither too dry nor too chatty, and the content is organized very well. The text includes plenty of references to outside material for more in-depth study. If you are studying for the CEHv7 exam, this is an outstanding resource and I recommend it highly.

Edit: Many of the author's examples of how to use the "nc" command are clearly untested and incorrect, although he certainly is clear on the concept of what netcat is capable of. Be sure to test and experiment rather than taking the author's syntactic advice at face value.

This is, hands down, the most well written IT-related book I've come across. While other books have served as an immediate substitute for Ambien, Matt Walker and company have managed to pull off the tremendous feat of making their subject -- dare I say it? -- FUN. The writing is clear, the examples relevant, and there's a touch of humor to enliven the mundane. I've not taken the exam yet, so I can't speak to the alignment with the content, but I feel confident that no other book could have prepared me as well. I highly recommend this book and will keep an eye out for future works by this author.

This book is more succinct and more useful than the official EC-Council courseware books for CEH v8. I read this book before attending a CEH boot camp and felt like a CEH prodigy compared to my classmates. Without the book I probably wouldn't have passed the CEH exam.

Although I lack reviewer Bob's experience, I think the publisher needs to add an errata page for the book on the McGraw Hill web site. There were some errors in the end of chapter practice questions.

I got this book based solely on the terrible review from "Bob" about how the author has "paper certs", blah blah blah. I wanted to see it for myself. I can honestly say that after reading this book from cover to cover that every single complaint Bob made was dead wrong. Not just on the page numbers, since that was obviously copy pasta from his review on the first version, but every topic and complaint he had was missing from this version. Clearly Bob did NOT purchase this book and was still basing everything on the first one. His review should summarily be removed as completely irrelevant to the product reviewed.

Now, on to my ACTUAL review:

If you simply want a resource to pass the exam for some checkbox on your résumé or whatever, this book will work. If you also want to learn more about the actual field and job of a penetration tester, this book will definitely give you that. Matt's writing style was fantastic, and very engaging. I've read a LOT of other certification books and this one blows every one of them out of the water. I was learning and enjoying it. His tone, his examples, his "flow" if you will, were spot on for teaching a subject that could very easily be very dry (just check out the official courseware for this exam if you want an idea).

Matt gives plenty of information and resources for learning beyond just what was in the exam. He also points out things that are no longer current, but still need to be known for the exam. It helps to know when things are no longer relevant, that's the info that can be filed and dumped as soon as you pass the exam. But the actual knowledge transfer the author gives is spot on for the test AND the job.
