I've been in the IT security industry for well almost a year now since I graduated last year and I'm currently thinking about taking up C|EH examination. I've glanced through several prep and review books and found that C|EH seems to be quite straightforward.
I do not have hands on experience on most of the hacking tools listed in the books but I do use some of it on a daily basis e.g. tcp/windump, nmap, wireshark, etc. Plus, I noticed that C|EH is more towards guiding users on how to use the tools which is available in the tools man pages itself. I do not wish to spend too much time learning each and every tool suggested by C|EH.
As such is it possible to pass C|EH exam without any hands-on experience in hacking or hacking tools?
