I was just approved by EC-Council to sit for the CEH exam. I had to apply for an exception because I didn't take an official prep class, but have worked as a junior pentester for almost a year. Anyways I've heard nothing but nightmares from pple who've taken v8 and v9 about the material in the exam not being included in any of the study materials being provided--even by EC-Concil's own bootcamp. A lot of people have demanded EC-Council to give them a refund for the bootcamp or allow them to retest. Gulp.
