I Passed The CEH Exam

I took the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker v6 exam this afternoon. The exam was scheduled to run from 1pm to 5pm. To make sure I won't be late, I had lunch at the Goldilocks across the training center. Since there was no place to park in that area, I parked at Makati Cinema Square and walked a short distance to Marvin Plaza where my training school/testing center Infotech Xchange is located.

The test comprised of 150 questions. The 4 hour time allotment is really overkill. I finished it in about 2 hrs or less, and got a score of 88.45% (passing is 70%). Its an odd figure because some of the questions have multiple answers. So I guess if you don't get to choose all the correct options, they pro-rate it.

The questions focused more on the theoretical/conceptual aspects of hacking. The reviewers that I downloaded were pretty helpful. In fact, I would say that the time I spent going through all the materials from cover to cover for the past couple of weeks was probably not really necessary. Going through the reviewers with explanations on what the correct answers are proved to be much more effective even though I only started going through them yesterday afternoon.

In any case, I am now an official EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH v6)!

I really wouldn't know what is the difference between v5 and v6 for the simple reason that I never took v5. But I suspect the newer topics in v6 like VoIP hacking, Bluetooth hacking, etc. might not be in v5. And 'yes', 1 or 2 questions popped up in the exam related to these topics.

The exam is online but you have to take it at an authorized Prometric testing center. You have to look for such an authorized center in your area.
