OSCP Week 1

Well, I finally got all of my OSCP course information, and got to work this week!

My first impressions of the material are definitely positive. I like the ability to work offline with the videos/PDFs as opposed to some other courses that required that I have constant connectivity.

All in the material totals a 373 page PDF, and 149 video files (7.4 hours total) combined with the lab environment.

While I haven't done much in the lab other than some very basic scripting, I am looking forward to getting my hands wet in there for sure.

I knocked out the first 73 or so pages of the PDF and the first 21 videos this week, which wasn't bad at all. That said, a lot of this was obviously intro or easier things, so once I get to the parts where I might be learning new things, then it will slow down.

Definitely excited about the course and what it will contain, and already have some new ideas for posts/scripts/utilities.
