pen testing in 12 reviews

This a good course for beginners in pen testing so far this course is a great match for me - considering level, access to both the video and transcript, and my heavy travel schedule for work.

I definitely recommend it to anyone trying to learning basic Kali-Linux commands and good pen testing practices ...

A good experience for somebody who is new to pen testing and would like to learn more.

Just what you need before moving on to more detailed pen testing techniques.

I was looking for a basic practical step by step guide for Pen Testing to add to my theory knowledge and this did the job.

Would recommend taking this course first if you are going to take any of the more advanced courses in pen testing.

honestly the setup took about as much time as was spent on pen testing.
