Nah I don't want to do that considering it's on our own time and not specifically HTS related.

I started learning about wireless security way before I signed up for the course. But I spent a considerable amount of time going over the material. I spent entire days doing nothing but hacking my home network. There is a lot of information that is covered that isn't "needed" to pass the exam but if you put the time into it you really get a great grasp of what is going on. Research anything you don't fully understand. If you (or anyone) decide to take it, experiment with what you are learning. I picked up on a lot of stuff that wasn't covered at all and probably wouldn't have had I not taken the course. The course ends teasing you some very advanced stuff that if you wish to continue learning on your own it gives you a bit of direction to take things to the next level.

Overall, glad I did it. The cost wasn't bad. I was able to work at my own pace and highly enjoyed the material. The exam was by far one of the most exciting tests I have ever taken and would love to do it again.

To anyone considering following a route into pen testing this is pretty much a great foot in the door a must for most new comers. Majority of all company's are resorting to wireless connections as prices for software and hardware dramatically drop and security increases. If only I had enough G to take the exam.That's the only problem with certs take a few and your soon looking at alot of money spent in a short period of time.

Any cert from Offensive security is well worth a look into. Hear alot of good comments about their courses and they are by far the most in touch and up to date with the courses there running.
