I don’t know how to begin with, I’m not a expert experienced reverse engineer. I actually entered this field recently. Before that I had experience with basic exploit development and solving crackmes. But reverse engineering is not about solving a hard crackme, anyone can code a hard algorithm. However at the beginning some people said that this course is hard for me and not suitable for me. As the course title suggests “Advanced Reverse Engineering of Software” it is surely advanced to a level. I haven’t spent years in this field but I dedicated the last few months in this area and I really learned a lot from this course. If you ask the existing people in this field how to enter this area 9/10 people would recommend the tutorial series of “Lena151”. Actually those tutorials do not give a complete idea and is a bad choice. I’m not the only person who says this.
I have been thinking about why this happens. Thinking back to myself, I started learning reverse engineering by reading the Lena151 tutorials. I thought they were awesome until Daeken told me that was an awful approach to learn reverse engineering.
At first I didn’t understand why they were so bad. After all, Lena’s tutorials had taught me how to crack my first software.

The things I learned in here really helped me to take my C/C++/ASM skills to the next level. Each topic I learned helped me research more and more into the subject.
