This course is not about Python syntax, instead focus is on Python modules.
- Threading, Queues
- Sockets, Client - Server
- BeautifulSoup, Mechanize
- Immunity debugger integration
- PE parsing module
Videos are a little bit old and compared to Offensive Security videos they are less polished. All examples are in Pyhon2 :)
That being said, examples and topics cover a wide range of Python modules, and are easily converted into Python3.
Yes, i would recommend this course. If you don’t care about exam, take only course, then it’s even cheaper.
You will get challenges and have to solve them in 6 hour window. In my case it was 4 challenges and had to solve 2. I actually solved 3 and had time left for the last one. Some have had 5 challenges and 3 solutions to pass, so it seems to vary a bit.
Challenges are quite practical, for example scraping a web page, using Scapy to send / receive TCP packets etc. I wrote all solutions in Python3, they had no problems with it.
