    ----
Greetings all:

I am in the process of taking the practical portion of the IACRB CPT exam. The exam must be completed and submitted for grading within a 60-day time limit. I'm on the final step of the exam, which requires cracking of the root password on a Linux host. For me, this step seems to be taking quite a long time (15+ days now). While I realize that real-world password cracking can take days, months, or even years (depending on complexity), I'm curious to see if others have had the same experience. Also, what are your general feelings on the CPT and the amount of weight it carries in the pen-testing field? My goal is to break into this field starting next year, and I'm looking for suggestions on a sound approach.

Thanks in advance!
