CEH is good for getting a job, not for knowledge. Any serious hacker
would laugh at the content CEH covers. I would advise only taking it
if you plan on heavily supplementing it with real knowledge.

Alberto,

I've been through a week long CEH class taught by Global Knowledge.  The
content was ok, but I was frustrated in that the instructor couldn't talk
about how to defend against these attacks.

Regardless, if you have an interest in hacking, yes, you should pursue this
certification...and yes, it will help you gain credibility as an Information
Security professional.

Since we don't know your knowledge or experience level, it's difficult to
know if this is best use of your time.......but the this general statement
will always hold true:

All things being equal, having certifications is better than not having
them.

Hope this helps you.

Subject: CEH program and Sybex Study Guide


Hi all,
I know maybe in this list you have talk a lot about CEH program, but I want
to know what do you really think about this program (CEH)? Is this really
useful to start in information security? And what do you think about the
Sybex Study Guide, by "Kimberly Grave"?
I do this question because a couple of years ago I took the CompTIA
Security+ exam and passed it, but I wanna to continue the preparation in the
field of information security and Ethical hacking, and someone recommended
me the "Certified Ethical Hacker" certification as a good way to continue
the path, so a bought the Sybex Study Guide for the exam, but I don't see a
lot of difference between the content of Security+ program and this one, I
thought I'd find the CEH deeper in the subject than Security+ program.
In fact, I found this Sybex guide is not very actual, there's not any
mention to Windows 7 or even Vista, the tools mentioned are kind of old, in
the "cracking password" section they don't talk about rainbow tables, only a
littler mention; in the "backdoor" sections she (the author) recommend
adding an additional hard disk to the computer and boot from there for
protection using the backdoor she mention, or buy a Windows netbook, but
it's not better using a VM in for testing?
Anyway, I just want to know what you think about this program? If not, what
do you recommend for continue the path to Ethical Hacking and Information
Security.

Thank you and best regards,
Alberto Medina
