Exam Review:

Even though I got stuck in a few steps, it was a simple exam overall. Remember to write down every step you take in the notebook. While conducting an attack, maintain a determined and controlled approach. Take careful note of every move you take, and don’t dismiss anything you believe is ineffective. Because the solution is usually found in the useless things. It was essentially an Open Book Exam in which you were allowed to Google any command or use a cheat sheet. All of the questions are interrelated, and the information collection section plays the most important function. So, if you get stuck, remember to do some research or try and error.

NOTE: If you take the test, you must not post screenshots of the questions on the internet, otherwise your certificate will be permanently revoked.

NOTE: Use the same email address that you used to purchase the voucher.
