What about some of the reviews on Reddit... They got removed after a while, what do we have to do?

Hey @xd4vidsx! We've taken note of your review as soon as you linked it here, so the good news is that your entry is safe.

However, one of the criteria for judging is 'Traction' - so having the review taken down means it won't get as much engagement, thus not scoring high on that category. It would be nice if you could post it again (there or somewhere else).

We've also seen that most of the security subreddits prefer in-depth, personal reviews, or those on the more technical side - as these are the ones that benefit their subscribers most. ;)

eMAPT Review (September 2017 // This is my most recent, but also my "harshest" review of an eLS course. That said, if this is the most negative that I ever get about eLearnSecurity, then they are obviously one of the top resources for education and certification!) - https://www.doyler.net/security-not-included/emapt-review

eWPTX Review (April 2017 // Probably my most well written review, and one of the two actually in 2017. I was actually a web app pentester at the time that I took this course, and it was still awesome. I have written multiple posts (and have too many more to write) based on ideas I got from it) - https://www.doyler.net/security-not-included/ewptx-review 


eWPT Review (November 2016 // Fairly close to 2017, my 2nd most popular review, and still plenty of activity in 2017) - https://www.doyler.net/security-not-included/ewpt-exam 


eCPPT Review (2015 // My first actual review of an eLearnSecurity course. I thought it'd be fun to share to see my growth as a tester, as well as a writer. Plus, if anyone here still hasn't taken it, maybe it can convince them.) - https://www.doyler.net/security-not-included/ecppt-review 


eCPPT Exam (2014 // This isn't even a review, or anywhere near 2017. That said, this is my entire blog's most active post, and I love the community interaction. It has over 80 comments, with the most recent being earlier this week! I do my best to remove any spoliers from my/other's posts, but let me know if you see anything.) - https://www.doyler.net/security-not-included/ecppt-exam 


4 in a Box (2016 // Just when I signed up for my current cert package!) - https://www.doyler.net/security-not-included/elearnsecurity-4-in-a-box 


eCPPT vs OSCP (2016 // Not exactly a review, but another very honest comparison between the two courses. Also more proof that I'm not a secret eLS plant :P. Fairly active, but mostly because I share this with people any time they ask me about the two.) - https://www.doyler.net/security-not-included/ecppt-vs-oscp 


While it doesn't count as a review, my love for eLearn goes all the way back to 2013 when I was helping Armando with typos, broken links, and some small errors in the eCPPT material! Whether I win anything in this contest or not, I still love eLearnSecurity courses/certs, and I can't stop recommending them to people.

Unfortunately, it's not in any of my reviews, but I'd also like to thank Francesco. He was my exam reviewer for my eCPPT back in early 2014. This was when the reviewers were a bit more open during the process, but I must say it helped me a lot. He helped me to cement my skills into a slightly better counsulting viewpoint, helped me understand when to think more or think less, and generally just helped me get through my first real certification.

I know this has been a huge post, but I just wanted to add one more thing. When I started my eCPPT back in 2013 I was a Software Engineer who had had a passion for security for years. Fours years and 4 (soon to be 5) eLearn certs later, I'm a senior pentester/red team member for a major consulting company. I'd like to think eLearnSecurity at least played a small part in that.

And stay on the lookout for my eCRE review (probably Q1 of 2018, once I finish up this GXPN)!
