The journey begins!

Hi everyone!

Let’s start this off today! I have enrolled myself to the course this morning and the course material was provided straight away.

First thing I did was go over the syllabus and plan how I can go about this. I will post in my weekly blog regarding how many hours I studied during the week to give you all an idea. Just generally speaking, I’m hoping to go over each topic in one week.

I purchased the elite version that means I get 120 hours of lab time and unlimited time on my exam voucher. There are also additional topics covering Ruby for pentester + metasploit and Powershell for pentester in the elite version, which I think will beneficial as the aim of the game is to have skills that will set you apart from the others.

Note Keeping

I know making notes and staying on top of all this will require organisation. I have never really been the best at this but because I am blogging this time I will make extra effort. In pentesting note keeping and organisation skills are a must! To help me I will be using the software called KeepNote ( – this is a software used by other pentesters too and recommended by them. So keepNote will hopefully help me keep my notes organised with screenshots and key pieces of information I will need throughout the course and in the future as well.

But yeah this post is really just to let you all know that the journey begins today! I hope it all goes well and I hope I learn a lot on this journey – fingers crossed!
