Preparing well for the OSCP is both a simple and difficult task, as the resources available are so numerous..
I therefore propose to list you by the various resources that helped me to prepare myself and that I found particularly relevant or even essential during the lab!
It is obvious that this list only concerns me, it is based on the experience I have had and is therefore not necessarily exhaustive.. :)
It is up to you to extract the information you considered useful and possibly to organize it in the form of a cheatsheet to facilitate your task during the lab.. ;)
I think we can thank the many contributors listed below :D
