      Comments about oreilly CEH: Certified Ethical Hacker Version 8 Study Guide:

      I decided to save some money and buy this book instead of official CEH courseware. That was my biggest mistake.
      The book is very shallow and from time to time you see notes like "You need some deeper knowledge of this topic to pass the exam, but we decide not to put it here, go study for yourself." I'm not against self study, but with such an approach I could have downloaded a course syllabus (for free) - there would be no difference.
      Review questions are fantastic in their stupidness, the answers are even worse.
      Want to become pass a CEH exam? Don't read this book.
